Splendid Teapot Racing

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Splendid Teapot Racing was conceived by Simone Montgomery in Dunedin, New Zealand and the first public contest was at the 2014 Steampunk NZ Festival in Oamaru. It has since spread to other steampunk groups.  Splendid Teapot Racing involves radio-controlled teapots negotiating an obstacle course within a set time. The vehicle is simply a teapot of the entrants’ choice attached to a radio-controlled car or truck and embellished to taste. Keeping the size of vehicles within the limits stated in the rules helps ensure a fairer and more entertaining contest. The teapot doesn’t still have to function as a teapot!
