The Great Holyoke Brick Race

October 15 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm EDT

You are invited to build a brick race car for the 11th annual Great Holyoke Brick Race to be held Saturday, OCT 15th 2022 (no rain date). Held annual on Race Street, The Great Holyoke Brick Race involves designing and building a  race car using a standard brick, cleverly mounted on wheels and raced down an inclined track using only gravity to cross the finish line. The Great Holyoke Brick Race emphasizes creativity and the sculptural quality of the race cars as well as making the fastest machine to cross the finish line.

We want to have as many brick racecars as can be created to kick off our 11th event, and we’d like to invite you to participate by building your own brick racer.

WHAT IS A “BRICK RACE”

As the name implies, a “Brick Race” involves designing and building a brick racecar that is cleverly mounted on wheels and raced down an inclined track using only gravity to cross the finish line. Our Brick Race will emphasize creativity and the sculptural quality of the racecars as well as making the fastest machine to cross the finish line first.
