It’s inevitable that the success of the Midwest-centric Power Racing Series (PPPRS) has caused a similar group to spring up elsewhere in the country. The Fort Wayne Regional Maker Faire is organizing “The Race” where ride-on electric toys are converted into ferocious speed machines.
The Fort Wayne Regional Maker Faire – Powered by TekVenture has officially launched “The Race” – a featured activity of our 2012 event. “The Race” (not affiliated with PPPRS) consists of modifying an electric ride on vehicle for kids, bringing it to Headwaters Park Oct. 6 & 7 to drag race through an obstacle course that includes water, gravel, sand, and bark. The fastest time will earn bragging rights.
