Introduction: The Great Handcar Regatta

About: Hi, I'm Ben. I like mechanical engineering, and using free stuff/"junk".

On Sunday, September 28, a unique event was held for the first time in the city of Santa Rosa. This event was a race of human powered art cars that drove on railroad tracks. The event was complete with live music and food stands. Many local artists showed off their work or built their own vehicles.

Although this was the first year this event was held, it attracted a few thousand spectators and about 15 vehicle entries.
