Splendid Teapot Racing Florida's First Event

We had a great time at Renninger's Industrial Show over the weekend and the teapot race was a success and very funny to watch.



I really enjoy seeing all the creative ways that people went with the concept of using a remote control chassis and a teapot to build their racers.

Renninger's Antiques and Flea Market were very generous! They had two large tents set up for us and a table. They also donated a trophy for the grand champion.

The grass course was difficult for some of the racers, but really those were the most entertaining to watch.

Another fun, surprise addition to our race was live musical accompaniment. Daniel O'Ryan from the band Clockwork Knotwork played his steampunk electro-bagpipes for us. His large repertoire of songs added a lot to the races. I now think all teapot races need a bagpipe player.
