Red Bull Racing Can is a university racing series. 12 teams compete per location on a set course with custom remote control cars. But to ensure fair play, the chassis of all cars are the same. It's the body of the racers, aerodynamics and particularly design that make the difference. And that's where tin metal joins the race! The body, aerodynamic features and design will be made of Red Bull cans, with a Special Edition for 2012!
However, it's not enough to be the first across the finish line. Points will also be awarded based on creativity and how cool your mates think your design is, by creating some social media noise prior to your event. These points could determine your starting position on the grid!
The overall champions will be flown to Brazil, where they will compete with the national champs from around the globe in the Red Bull Racing Can World Final.
