Arcane racing

How about an "arcane soapbox derby" kind of race. Find a gentle slope,
point the cars down it, engines off, and let off the handbrake to
start. The winner will combine low brake stiction, low rolling
resistance and high weight. The main chance of damage would be to seat
springs with the occupants bouncing up and down to get the car
moving...

Start the engine after the end of the run to get some brake vacuum for
the cars that need it to stop, or just loop around and go back up
hill.

A place like Foothill College parking lot would be ideal. The
Friendship Day event is at a location on a slope in San Mateo (I
forget which college it is) so perhaps it could happen then?

Cheers Adrian
