The Extreme Sport Of Teapot Racing

Wellington, New Zealand’s Steampunk enthusiasts hosted their first ever teapot racing event at CubaDupa, the city’s vibrant new street festival. The sport involves navigating radio-controlled teapots through an obstacle course with tunnels, ramps and jumps.

Teapot racing was dreamed up by steampunk enthusiast Simone Montgomerie, and the first ever event was held last year, during the Oamaru Steampunk Festival.
