For those of you that haven’t been following, we attended Rocket Car Day 2010 on the weekend. This is an event where everyone cobbles/crafts/hacks together the most baddass vehicle they can, then crams a rocket engine into the back and competes for honor and glory!
Some people spent a lot of time on their cars:

Unsurprisingly at such a geeky event, RnD members were there in full force. We even had our own race!
(Note the swanky new lab coats, with RnD embroidery )
Here’s a couple of videos of the cars:

Special shout out to Big (Iain) who made his own custom arduino & digital compass powered car! We were all sorry to see it was short lived.
