buggy90 Years of Buggy in 90 Seconds
This video slideshow celebrates the 90th anniversary of Carnegie Mellon’s Buggy races (also known as Sweepstakes). This year’s races are April 16–17, during Spring Carnival. Each student-designed buggy holds a driver that steers and maneuvers around a 4,400-foot course. Just an inch off the ground, the buggies reach speeds of nearly 30 miles per hour. Teams include five students who push the buggies in a relay-style race up hills and to the finish line.
