GARC Race Team
An ultra-lightweight class GARC racer and its custom built transporter spaceship.
About this creation


This GARC Race Team consists of the "Camel" transporter (flown by ex-ADU pilots) and the "Cricket" racer (flown be ex-alien invaders). GARC racers in the ultra-lightweight class lacked the endurance to fly from the pits area to the race circuit in the asteroid belt. Each team would use a custom-built transporter to carry their racer to the start line.



This view was taken from the cockpit of the "Cricket" racer, as it approached the transporter after a race.



The "Cricket" racer fitted quite snugly inside the "Camel" transporter. Both sets of pilots had to fly extremely carefully during docking.



The ultra-lightweight racers produced high speed, thrilling contests. They were fast and nimble but incredibly vulnerable to being totally destroy in any crash.



In an emergency, the "Cricket" racer could land on a large asteroid. It could then be recovered by specialist break-down ships, operated by Roberts Recovery.



The racer was powered by a massive, single engine. The engine would spin when in use.

*** Fourth Wall Stuff ***



Play features on the "Camel" transporter include opening cockpits, fold-out radar and a control room with a sliding seat. The ship is strong and swoosable, thanks to the panels being linked with Technic components.



The racer can be opened up to access the crew. Its rood lifts off easily for play too.

This build was inspired by love of the Technic three-way axle connector piece and Nick Barrett's and Joe Perez's classic race teams.

This is simply great. I like that this ship has a room behind the cockpit and can carry a smaller craft with it. Good for exploration. Great work David.

Now that I've had a chance to look at this properly, I have to say it's a feast for the eyes. The colourscheme (of course), the unconventional shape of the carrier, nice NPU on the racer... lovely stuff all round.

What is it about checkered patterns that excite the eye? What is it about using yellow? What is it about angled forms? What is it that they touch... some deep primal region of the human psyche? Questions... do they always need answers? Why do some designs do this to me? I'll have to thank you for this, David! ;)

I simply love the checkerboard designs you do. They are always striking. The little pod is awesome, and you managed to load it up with nifty details in suh a small area. I also like how it fits in the "Camel." Sweet racer!

Fantastic looking Space Racing Team combo. I love that Black,Yellow and Red color scheme for the transporter. Also it is cool to see a ship with a non symetrical shape. Brilliant Idea!

Wow, interesting build solutions for 'Camel', but generally both transporter and racer looks great and other than that play ability and features on both of them are super cool :)

Strange bevel jointed beauty, in German the pun "schräg" would name it in one, David! I like these disc- capes and what you're doing with them. I've got some at home somewhere in the deeps of some boxes, look after them when we return... ;)

What an elegant shape. Saw Nick and Joe's influence straight away.
