Are you someone who is always curious to build new thing? Well this is the event for you!

Bring out your tools and show us your craftsmanship in creating the most awesome remote control cars!


  • Participants will build their own Electric RC car either from their own design or from a D.I.Y kit
  • No store bought / already assembled RC cars will be permitted. The course will be a road race.
  • The purpose of the RC race is to showcase the learning activities of students building radio-controlled cars and the components that make up this type of transportation system.
  • All RC Vehicles must be electric/battery powered
  • Participants have to ensure that the car assembled is as per specification and with proper documentation
  • The participants have to reach 1 hour prior to the event


  • The race will be divided into heats by classification. Each heat will have between 2-4 cars each.
  • The winner of each heat will advance to the next round. The number of teams entered will determine the number of rounds.
  • Each round will consist of a five lap race.
  • The final round will consist of an eight lap race
  • A car must be operational and on the track at the end of a race or it will be disqualified.
  • All Cars / controllers must be submitted to the reporting desk, except when contestants are racing, until all races are over. Failure to return your radio/controller tothe impound area will mean disqualification from the contest
