Mini Car Racing involves model cars with engines sourced from lawnmowers – 2-stroke gasoline engines with a cylinder capacity of 22 – 30 cm3. These cars are designed, manufactured, and at least 50% completed by students. They have a similar structure and operating principle as the original cars but in a reduced size.
