Red Bull Káry, the race of original non-motorized vehicles, is coming to Prague on Saturday, September 16th, 2023.
The competition focuses on the creativity and inventiveness of the vehicles, as well as the captivating show they deliver. Racers will not only showcase their skills but also compete against the clock.
An esteemed panel of experts will evaluate the performances. Don’t miss the chance to participate and experience the specially built track alongside Erik Cais, a renowned Czech rally driver!
Red Bull Káry made its debut in Belgium back in 2000 and has since been held in 52 countries, totaling 138 races.
After a 15-year absence, it returns to the Czech Republic, where Brno last hosted the thrilling spectacle with vehicles shaped like mousetraps, tents, and cranes.
Prague, on the other hand, saw the event twenty years ago in 2003, as Red Bull Káry raced down from Petřín Hill. This time, the action will take place at Strahov.
What is it all about?
It revolves around an extraordinary race of handcrafted, non-motorized vehicles where an array of ingeniously designed carts rely solely on human power and gravity for movement. These carts must possess the agility to turn and brake. Participating teams are tasked with conceptualizing and constructing their own distinctive vehicles.
During the initial stage, a panel of experts will handpick 40 finalists based on criteria like innovation, originality, racing prowess, safety, and adherence to construction regulations. The announcement of the final teams will take place on June 26, 2023, via the event’s official website, granting the chosen teams 10 weeks to transform their envisioned vehicles into reality.
Prepare to be amazed as previous races have witnessed the presence of carts resembling a banana, Titanic, dog, mouse, dinosaur, carrot, and even a spaceship.
With a captivating 30-second presentation to impress the esteemed jury, the teams will then embark on a meticulously designed track.
How to join?
The race is intended for teams composed of 4 to 5 individuals, with each team member being at least 18 years old. You can register until June 12, 2023, on the race’s website.
Part of the registration process includes submitting a prototype design of the vehicle proposed by the registered team, from which the expert jury will select the finalists.
Once you will be chosen, you’ll have the opportunity to race alongside Erik Cais, Max Habanec, David Luu, or the Europe 2 Star Crew team.
