This family-oriented event allows children age 2 through grade 5 (and really ANYONE!) to express their ingenuity by creating and racing their own wooden Grand Prix car on our six-lane track, while enabling our AWANA club to share God’s plan of salvation to those who participate in and attend this fun event involving their child.
Workshop Dates, Car Registration & Weigh-in:
Workshop dates this year are on Saturday and give anyone a chance to come and learn some tips from "the pro's" as well as use shop equipment to shape and smooth your car. Join us from 9:00am-12:00pm on Saturday, March 21st and 28th.
Registration and weigh-in will take place between 12:00 – 2:00pm right after the Satruday workshop on the 28th. All activities will take place in the Activity Center. Cars must be registered, weighed and given a number. The cars will be kept safe overnight until race day. The registration period will allow anyone time to test their cars on our track before submitting.
• As a reminder, maximum car weight is 5.0 ounces when weighed on our official scales.
• All cars MUST run the Awana wheels and axles provided in the kits. Cars NEED to be registered/weighed and left in the Activity Center on Saturday.
Race day is scheduled for Sunday, March 29th.
Voting for Best in Design will take place on Race Day (March 29th) from 4:30 to 5:00pm. Be there early to get your vote in.
This year's format will be different than before. The event will run from 5PM-7PM. All cars will race between 5PM and 6:15PM. We have plans for a special event and then run our top finishers again for some very exciting racing before wrapping up at 7PM.
We also have plans for food, games and crafts for all to enjoy. Clubbers will be able to spend more time participating and watching racing along with the other activities we will have available. We will also be sure to allow them time to stay on target with their AWANA handbook by completing sections with our leaders during the night.
