If you build it…..they will laugh…with you…Think you can beat the boys of Sektion Eight? These guys are crafty and ready to stir up some rice! This is a contest all about having a good time with 3 of your friends. You have 3 hours to build the best Ricer out of all the teams entered. You have all seen them before – cars with wooden wings, cardboard spoilers, and stickers everywhere. This is your chance to build one using our cars, not yours.
HyperFest will supply each team with a compact car along with a Ricer Trunk Kit. The kit will consist of some basic tools and a random selection of building materials such as spray paint, plywood, PVC pipe. You name it, it could be in there. Your team will have 2 hours to build the best Ricer. The winner will be determined by creativity and humor. The winning team will receive an awards package and trophy from HyperFest and it’s sponsors.
