Build your valve cover race car at home and race your valve cover car on our custom race track. What style do you go for, a Cal-Look, Patina, Restolook, completely original Old Speed valve cover, or one in fully custom paint? Be creative and not only the fastest but also the most original valve cover race car will go home with a small prize. Any style is welcome, but there are rules (see below!).
Open to all ages. It doesn't matter who you race, as at three losses and you are out, the fastest two valve covers run a final and the fastest racer wins! The AirMighty Valve Cover Racetrack will be open all weekend, but on Saturday and Sunday at 13.00 o'clock we will start the official race!
See you there and show us what you are building!

Your valve cover or “racer” is created by adding a chassis, wheels and weights to your aircooled VW engine valve-cover. Racers can be engineered in any way you want, so long as they follow the official rules (see above), and can take on any personality or character you see fit. From lights to radios, adding pilots in, slap on custom paint and everything in between! Be creative!
