The Obtainium Cup Contraptor’s Rally is a human-powered sculptural vehicle rally and festival on historic Mare Island in Vallejo, California on Sunday, July 19, 2015 from 1pm – 9pm. Inspired by the Kinetic Grand Championship in Arcata, CA the Obtainium Cup is a one-day event and will highlight the waterfront of Mare Island.
The racers will assemble at Alden Park and at 3pm will pedal along the waterfront where they will need to pass 5 challenges:
- Flying Monkeys
- The Inspectors
- Mad Hatters
The course is approximately 5 miles in length with a couple of 2-4% grade sections.
This event is a human-powered contraptor’s rally so will include vehicles that can be driven without the use of a motor and can be an art piece or a bicycle that has been altered in some fashion. Spectators are encouraged to travel with the rally on bike or in a car to view the various challenges.
At the beginning and end of the rally, there will be food, refreshments, entertainment and steampunk vendors. Food and non-alcoholic beverages will also be served at a number of the challenges. Participants can enter their vehicles by going to www.obtainiumworks.net/obtainium-cup-participants. For more info as well as a downloadable map, see our website or call 925-254-7643.
