The Erfurter Entenrennen


The “Erfurter Entenrennen” is the longest running “duck race” in Germany. For the last 22 years, the locals have been highlighting the arrival of spring by painting and decorating plastic ducks. These ducks then take part in a no-holds-barred race along the river Gera to the finish line at the Krämerbrücke. This year was the first opportunity for me to take part and, after playing around with the idea of a mechanized prototype, decided to just build a warp-drive.
