Ultimate LEGO Vehicle Contest

Make You Sweat...
Held on the hottest day of the year, contestants braved 100+
degree temperatures to make their way to the 5th Annual Ultimate LEGO
Vehicle Contest. The crowd at this year's competition represented the
fiercest, most hardened competitors, all eager for a go at the legendary
J-VEQ, winner of the first ever ULVC, who flew in from New York City
just for this event.
The heat was on, but builders'
spirits were kept high throughout the two-hour building period with a
soundtrack comprised of nothing but inspirational 1980s movie "training
J-VEQ cups his balls while working
on a concept car that would glide on completely spherical LEGO pieces.
Though test runs showed its speed to be surprisingly promising, J-VEQ
opted for a different design for his competition vehicle.
Competitors bring their completed vehicles over to the table to be judged
in the Aesthetics Contest, as this year's double-length ramps stand
ready for the upcoming Speed Race.
