The LEGO Architecture Dream Skyline Contest is still running at LEGO’s ReBrick website, and they also added a new event; the LEGO Speed Champions Racers of Tomorrow Contest. This contest challenges teen and adult LEGO fans to design and build a futuristic Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport Formula One racer! 🙂

LEGO SPEED CHAMPIONS CONTEST – OVERVIEW: The Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport team has a long and prestigious history in Formula One, but what about its future? In the same style and scale as LEGO Speed Champions, show LEGO what you think the iconic racecar will look like in the years to come – looking ahead 10, 20, or even 200 years!

LEGO SPEED CHAMPIONS CONTEST – HOW TO ENTER: Design and build your futuristic LEGO Speed Champions Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport Racer. Take up to five photos of your creation and submit them to the contest (make sure to show off all angles of your creation). Use the description field to tell about your model – then hit “submit”. When you receive a “Success!” pop-up notification after clicking “submit” on the entry submission page, your entry has successfully been submitted. The ReBrick moderation team will review it within 1-3 working days to make sure it fits all the contest rules.

LEGO SPEED CHAMPIONS CONTEST – RULES: Your entry should be in the same size and scale as LEGO Speed Champions sets. Builds should relate to Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport cars but otherwise not relate to any other car brands or third party IPs. This means all entries containing third party IPs that do not relate to LEGO or Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport will not be eligible for the contest – this includes other car or racing logos. Use of homemade stickers is allowed as long as stickers don’t show any brand or trademark. Entries can be previously built, but cannot be submitted previously in any contest of any kind. Entry photos should show your creation only, and should not show recognizable features of any person or any commercial product other than those of the LEGO Group and Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport. Entries must not contain LEGO elements which have been modified from their original form, including painted or cut elements. Use of any brick parts not produced by the LEGO Group will result in your entry being disqualified. Entrants must be at least 13 years of age at the time of entry. This contest is open to LEGO Digital Designer entries, however, make sure your images don’t show the baseplate from build mode. You can read the rest of the entry guidelines and rules here.

LEGO SPEED CHAMPIONS CONTEST – DEADLINE: You must submit your entry by August 28th, 2017 at 10:00AM EST. If you are not sure what time zone you are in, you can use an online time-zone converter to make sure you don’t miss the deadline.

LEGO SPEED CHAMPIONS CONTEST – JUDGES: A panel of judges from the LEGO Speed Champions team and Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport racing team will select one grand prize winner and nine runner-up winners. They will judge entries upon: overall coolness and originality – 25%, most inspired details – 25%, understanding of the Mercedes-AMG Petronas brand contest theme – 25%, best use of LEGO elements – 25%.

LEGO SPEED CHAMPIONS CONTEST – PRIZES: The grand prize winner will receive an exclusive tour of Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport team headquarters in Brackley, UK and the Mercedes-Benz World in Brooklands, UK on October 12th, including transportation and lodging for two people, plus a signed #75883 LEGO Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team set, and extra gifts from Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport. The nine runner-up winners will receive a signed #75883 LEGO Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team set, and extra gifts from Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport.

LEGO SPEED CHAMPIONS CONTEST – WINNERS: Winners will be contacted on the email address associated with their LEGO ID account after September 11th, 2017. Winners will be announced on ReBrick when all winners have returned the signed Winner’s Certification Documents. A winner who do not return their Winner’s Certification Document within one week (5 days) of receiving it will be disqualified, and a new winner will be selected.

Fun contest, isn’t it? If you like the LEGO Speed Champions series, this is your chance to add a futuristic spin to designing racecars. If you need a bit of inspiration, or you would like to get some of the sets in the collection, you can visit the LEGO Speed Champions section of the Online LEGO Shop.

This is cool! I think I will make it hover… although when I checked entries, it looked like everyone else though the same! 😉

LOL! Yeah, a hovering racecar would be awesome! Maybe add some other cool features to differentiate yours. 😀
