Splendid Teapot Racing was conceived by Simone Montgomery in Dunedin, New Zealand and the first public contest was at the 2014 Steampunk NZ Festival in Oamaru.

Thanks to a whole team of splendid Steampunks, Teapot Racing will once again return to Lincoln!

Splendid Teapot Racing involves radio-controlled teapots negotiating an obstacle course within a set time. The vehicle is simply a teapot of the entrants’ choice attached to a radio controlled car or truck and embellished to taste. Keeping the size of vehicles within the limits stated in the rules helps ensure a fairer and more entertaining contest. The teapot doesn’t still have to function as a teapot!
