Jalopnik has a fun piece on this weekend’s Power Racing Series competition at Maker Faire Detroit.

Two vehicles were super reliable and put on an endurance racing clinic. One, the “Pit Rats” of OmniCorps Detroit took the race with decent speed, good handling and unfaltering performance. They didn’t even need to come in for a battery change. Taking second was “Baby Burrito” out of Milwaukee employing the slow and steady wins the race strategy, in third with a fast but occasionally broken car was i3 Detroit in their “My Little Friend” Jeep. Who knows, maybe there’ll be a Jalop entry next year.
