Event Dates: June 7, 2014 - October 4, 2014 Location: Tacoma, Washington
Beginning , June 7th 2014, Hagerty will host Valve Cover Racing the first Saturday of each month from 8-10am at the Griot’s Garage Caffeine and Gasoline event in Tacoma, WA.
Teams, consisting of one person under the age of 18 and one 18 years old or older, will enter their valve cover racer in a race off against other teams for the chance to be crowned the winner! Additionally, a prize will be given for the ‘Most Creatively Designed’ valve cover racer!
Don’t know what Valve Cover Racing is? Think “Pinewood Derby” for the Car Guy!
Starting with a valve cover from an automotive engine, a “racer” is created by adding a chassis, wheels and weights. Racers can be engineered in any way you want, so long as they follow the official rules , and can take on any personality or character that you see fit – remember, a creative design award will recognize one team who goes above and beyond to make their racer the best in the creative department.
On race day, registered racers will be randomly placed in a bracket playoff format, and then the race is on! The starting gate drops and gravity takes over, sending two racers sprinting down a specially built track to see who is the fastest to the finish line. Each racer will compete in a best two-out-of-three race off and winners will advance to the next round until only one remains and claims that month’s championship!
