Coming back to where it all began, Red Bull Chariot Race made a stop in Athens, Georgia on Saturday. Modern minds were tasked with designing chariots and preparing for their journey at College Square, and creativity was not in short supply.
Teams varied from a giant mustache ride (literally) to three sassy amigas to a team of Grease-themed Pink Ladies. But it was team No Rash On My Mustache who the gods shined upon and favored to win the race.
“It’s great to win!” said Evan Meyers of the winning team. “I didn’t think it was possible but our staches pulled us through."
Not trailing far behind was team UGA Sculpture who also brought home the Creativity Award with their welded medal contraption. Coming in third was team Chi O, who also won over the crowd and nabbed the People’s Choice Award.
“Everybody had such great spirit,” said event judge Audrey Brees. “It was really fun to watch them improvise after crashes.”
A total of 10 teams competed in the event, which was full of thrills and spills. If you can’t get enough Red Bull Chariot Race, don’t fret. The event is still on the road and will be held in Louisiana on November 4th, Nashville on November 11th, and Oklahoma on November 12th.
