Third International Recorder Race 2006

Hartware MedienKunstVerein in the PHOENIX Halle Dortmund
Presented by FORMforte, Munich, in cooperation 
with the HartwareMedienKunstVerein
Saturday, June 3, 2006, all day long

After the grand success of the races held in 
Munich in 2003 and 2004, it's all happening again 
in 2006 in sight of the Dortmund's 
Westfalen-Stadion: screw on the wheels and off we 
go, “fast forwarding" to the starting line, 
driven by nothing but the motor that used to 
spool magnetic tape.

No matter if it's the “Walkman" or the “Boombox 
class", recorder racing is not just about speed. 
A further important criterion in selecting the 
“Weltrekorder 2006" is the quality of style, 
design and performance of both the vehicle and 
its team. To award points for this “overall 
grandezza," there will again be a highly 
competent “international top jury" of prominent 
representative from the fields of design, art, 
politics, and racing sports.

Born from the idea “How does one actually recycle 
obsolete technologies?" this competition is a 
racing sport event in which a growing number of 
enthusiastic friends of recorder racing meet and 
set up their fabulous racer, unbelievable 
creativity and a real sporting spirit up against 
one another.

So, why don’t you bring your old tape recorders 
out of the basement, warm up your soldering gun, 
and fast forward to the Recorder Race of 2006!

Final signup cut-off date: Friday, May 27th 2006
