Steampunk inspiration and resources

Off to the Teapot Races

My last event during Tesla Con last weekend was the teapot races. Twenty-seven cars and racers were there for the event, not to mention a large and appreciative crowd. I talked to a few racers who said they’d seen the event at the International Steampunk Symposium earlier this year and it inspired them to give it a try. I bet we’ll see a lot of these same cars at ISS 2017!

I told my brother-in-law about both the dirigible races and the teapots and he is now gung-ho about building some to race at next year’s Tesla Con. I can’t wait!
