Detroit Maker Faire and PPPRS

A group of Sector67 members traveled to Detroit this past weekend to check out the Maker Faire and compete in the Power Racing Series!

This thing was awesome and enormous.

There were plenty of hiccups along the way for all contestants, like near collisions for us…

And rain for everyone.

But Sector67 managed to win first place medals in the Qual, Enduro and Circut races!

And then promptly took some much deserved R&R.
