The Gallery Event will give insights into its: machines, people, and purpose.
On the morning of September 22, teams will line up on one side of Market Street for spectators, officials and the random bystander to get a close look at the marvelous engineering prowess of the sculptures about to race. The start will be a Lemans style start (pilots will be across the street from their sculptures wait for the sound of the start then run to their sculptures, get in and start pedaling) and will make its way through the city to the mud pit then will continue on to the Lowell Heritage State Park and Beach to plunge into the waters of the Merrimack River. Once out of the water they will race back to the finish line on Market Street.
Kinetic Sculpture Race is an organization whose mission is to host and produce an annual kinetic sculpture race within the city of Lowell, Massachusetts. Kinetic sculptures are all-terrain, human-powered, art sculptures made from repurposed materials and engineered to race over road, water, mud and sand.
