OH BOY!!!!! Tomorrow is the 43rd Annual Humboldt County Kinetic Grand Championship...the "triathlon of the art world". I'll be serving as an art judge again this year. The madness is building. CNN just posted a lovely slideshow and article about the Grand Championship on their wbsite.
Join me in Arcata for the pageantry and brake testing, which starts at 10:00 AM on Saturday. At noon, the whistle will sound and the racers will be off! The racers will descend DEAD MAN'S DROP later on Saturday afternoon. On Sunday, you can watch the racers enter the water from Eureka's public marina, or you can hang out along the Eureka waterfront to see the racers pass by. On Monday afternoon, you can visit historic Ferndale to watch the racers gloriously limp across the finish line.
Stay tuned tomorrow for fresh photos of the kinetic vehicles. I'll be posting 'em on Flickr and Extreme Craft.
You can also watch the race LIVE or SEMI-LIVE on the Kinetic Grand Championship website HERE.
For the Glory!
