Welcome to Mike's Kinetic Sculpture Racing Page

Here is a picture of my amphibious bicycle a.k.a. the Lampi Limo, with a spring suspension trailer I made for towing my kids, that bicycle with me on it in Port Townsend Bay, competing with the likes of the Killer Tomato. The Limo is now a.k.a. the Bantam Menace Pot Racer, with a couple of pictures from the 1999 KINK Kinetic Challenge at Stevenson, WA, along the Columbia River. Pictures from the Port Townsend Kinetic Sculpture Race can be found here.

Some of the details of construction of my new and highly effective prop drive unit for the Bantam Menace Pot Racer can be found here. Details on the paddle belt drive can be found on this page.

Some pictures of the Shuttle Distress, a car sized amphibious kinetic "sculpture" I built, can be found on this page. As it was too big for me to keep any more I donated it to the Skamania County Parks and Recreation Department's Youth Activities Program in Stevenson, WA. They should have a lot of fun with it!

I took some MPEG movies at the Great Port Townsend Bay Kinetic Sculpture Race Oct. 1996. The parade (17MB), the road race (22MB), and the water entry (45MB) can all be seen. Here are some pictures I took at that race.

Here is a story and photos from the 2001 KSR in Stevenson, WA.
