Watkins Glen Opening Weekend at International Motor Racing Research Center


RLUG had a fantastic day at the International Motor Racing Research Center. RLUG was invited to display LEGO and the capabilities of the models. Visitors were fascinated that each and every model was LEGO as most remember playing with LEGO as a kid where they were just blocks. RLUG members brought many models including the Bugatti Chiron, Porsche 911 GT3 RS, Porsche 911 RSR, Rally Car, Mustang, many Speed Champion models, as well as other sets.

RLUG Slot Car Race

The big draw was the build your own car and race it against another builder down a slot track. Children, adults and even RLUG members built cars based on a pre-built chassis. Participants had to engineer their cars for weight, height, length and width. If the car was too tall, it could fall over forward or too long, it might not be able to navigate the initial drop and curve. It was a amazing to see all the LEGO fans and even the local news station was impressed capturing the cars racing down the tracks.
