Call for participation

Third International Recorder Race 2006

Presented by FORMforte, Munich, in cooperation with the 
HartwareMedienKunstVerein, Dortmund/Germany
Saturday, June 3, 2006, doors open at 14:00, race starts at 15:00
Hartware MedienKunstVerein in the PHOENIX Halle Dortmund

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 27, 2006
