Baltimore Kinetic Sculpture Race
2023 Race Report: Nanster Truck



Here's a Sculpture!
< Previous Page Next Page >

Nanster Truck

The other team that started the race on foot brought a vehicle made of pool noodles and 4 inner tubes that had no drive train other than the pilots’ feet, Flintstones-style.

On the water, the pilots switched to swimming, and clearly violated the rule that pilots are allowed only 8% total area of body/clothes wetness.

For some reason, an additional pilot used a strap to help tow the sculputre from the front while others propelled it from inside.

The same approach made more sense at the mud.

This was their fourth entry:

Their pit crew wore Americana-themed costumes.

For this most ridiculous harbor passage, the judges awarded them the Golden Flipper award.
