Maker Faire Kansas City: Power Racing Series


As usual, the PPPRS looks like a lot of fun!

The world’s only $500 electric motorsport finished its second round of the season in Maker Faire Kansas City! We competed on June 29-30 at the Kansas City Union Station. Here are just some of the thrills and spills that went down. I’d like to thank Make Magazine, Milwaukee Makerspace, Sector 67, i3 Detroit, Pumping Station: One, Area 515, CCCKC, The Mehl family, and J-Squad for their entries this weekend.


The Road to Maker Faire Challenge will award $2,500 to one winner to bring his or her project to World Maker Faire on Sep. 21 & 22, 2013 in New York. Use the funding for materials, transport, or anything else you might need to get to Maker Faire. Applications are due by 11:59pm PT on August 5, 2013.

Enter Now!
