2019 Race Report: Shark Week

Shark Week

Team CAP Kinetic of Overlea built this rugged new Shark Week with higher ground clearance and 36-inch wheels than last year. The steering linkage from a donatured surrey joined the steering box from a Nissan pickup. It also has front-wheel, rear-seat steering that sometimes appears in Baltimore but very rarely in the California Grand Championship.

Do you have any idea how many photos it took to get even this much visibility of the four pilots’ faces?

One of the hardest parts of the course is exiting the water without pushing. Transitioning from water propulsion using paddles or oars to wheel-based land traction means the wheels need to bear enough weight to pull the sculpture forward. Shark Week excelled.

“Can’t talk now—I'm riding a shark across sand in the middle of Baltimore.”

This should be in a caption contest.

Their prior kinetic excursions were:

When a freewheel on Mr. Trash Velocipede was torn off its mounting hub, Shark Week stepped in with the specific parts they needed. For this, the Judges awarded CAP Kinetic Best Pit Crew.
