The 18th Annual Kinetic Sculpture Race at Ventura Harbor is a unique event that features people-powered works of art built to travel over an exciting all-terrain race course beginning with the launching of the vehicles into the water at the boat ramp on Spinnaker drive, continuing across the sand and around an oval track and ending with a drive through the mud pit at Ventura Seaside Village.
These kinetic sculptures can have over 100 gears, ingenious treading, flotation and propulsion, athletic pilots and mechanically advanced pit crews. These uniquely engineered machines are transformed into moving artful sculptures. Visit www.kineticrace.com for more information.
The event starts at the corner of Anchors Way Drive and Schooner Drive at 10:17 a.m. on Saturday, October 17th. Admission is FREE. The race benefits Turning Point Foundation, a non-profit organization, which provides a homeless shelter, housing and rehabilitation and community support services for persons disabled by mental illness in Ventura County.
