The Power Racing Series (adults racing on highly modified “Power Wheels” vehicles) returns for Maker Faire Orlando 2017!

We are looking for some slightly crazy people with just enough engineering talent to be dangerous. Individuals and teams (friends, businesses, organizations) are welcome to join in the fun and to compete for Power Racing bragging rights!

You’ll take a Power Wheels vehicle (craigslist has the best deals…), and modify it with a big electric motor, then pilot it around the track for glory! The latest rules allow for fully custom vehicles, as long as they appear to have been designed for kids, or could have been a ride-on toy 🙂

You can keep it simple, or go crazy…



To enter the competition, email us at and we will send you the full information packet and help you get started on the road to victory! Sign up soon while there are still good vehicles on craigslist!
