Materialise is organizing a series of races for slot cars made with Additive Manufacturing technologies, to be held at AM industry events worldwide throughout 2014. And we challenge you, whether on your own or as part of a team, to not only create, but also to race your own 3D printed slot car at one of these sure to be unforgettable events!

Slot car racing is the competitive hobby of racing with powered miniature automobiles which are guided by grooves or slots in the track on which they run.

At each race, contestants will compete in several categories, including: Fastest Car, Best Design, and Most Original Use of Additive Manufacturing.

Our aim is to put the potential of AM in the spotlight, and showcase how it can benefit design, both functionally and aesthetically.
