The organizers, FORMforte – research laboratory for design from Munich and the Dortmund-based Hartware MedienKunstVerein, are pretty sure that this event will become one of the biggest sports highlights of the year 2006.

(jury member of the audience).

The 3rd International Recorder Race will be moderated by Gerrit Bahlmann (Funkhaus Europa/WDR5), while the DJ Timmy Twister Set (Dortmund) will delight the audience at PHOENIX Halle with enjoyable sounds and rhythms.

The race starts at 15:00 Uhr, doors open at 14:00.

The admission charge of 5 Euro (children under 12 only 3 Euro) will be invested into the fostering and future development of recorder racing sports.

After the grand success of the previous years, it’s all happening again in 2006 in sight of the Dortmund’s Westfalen-Stadion: screw on the wheels and off we go, „fast forwarding“ to the starting line, driven by nothing but the motor that used to spool magnetic tape.

But recorder racing is not just about speed. A further important criterion is the quality of style, design and performance of both the vehicle and its team. To award points for this „overall grandezza,“ there will again be a highly competent „international top jury“ of prominent representative from the fields of design, art, politics, and racing sports.

Born from the idea „How does one actually recycle obsolete technologies?“ this competition is a racing sport event in which a growing number of enthusiastic friends of recorder racing meet and set up their fabulous racer, unbelievable creativity and a real sporting spirit up against one another.

So, why don‚t you bring your old tape recorders out of the basement, warm up your soldering gun, and fast forward to the Recorder Race of 2006!
