Carboard Car

Once K1 Speed’s contest was announced, there was a flurry of activity at Demaras Racing HQ. A big brainstorming session brought about some lofty goals. A full-scale cardboard F1 car would definitely win the contest. But according to the YouTube video, it takes 500 hours and detailed schematics.

On to plan B!

Since the K1 Speed contest did not require a human-sized kart, the decision was made to bring in Bamse and TV Bamse, the official mascots of Demaras Racing. After considering cardboard cars of various sizes, the decision was made to create a big-winged, high downforce, two-seat sportscar in honor of Denmark’s long history at Le Mans. Plus, it’ll be cute to have two teddys in there.
