As in previous Maker Faires and Mini Maker Faires, this year’s event will feature Power Racing Series race, where grownups race ride-on toy cars, supercharged with larger motors and batteries. That said, the PPPRS has been around for a few years now, and we’re starting to see the teams move beyond the basics to really flex their creative skills.

Case in point, Ithaca Generator’s Dragon racer (#116) created by team Race Condition uses what looks like a toy tractor as the chassis, but has been accented with a fierce dragon head. Other racers have added James-Bond-esque secret tricks to their cars. As one driver told me, they’re driving around on toy cars–they should have fun!

The Power Racing track has been set up in Zone B at the Faire… check it out!
