From waste to race!

A global competition for children and young people to help the Race Against Climate Change by building a Formula E race car from e-waste.


Calling young innovators and designers!

Did you know that millions of tonnes of electrical products are being thrown away when they contain important metals and minerals for batteries that could power our transition to a cleaner, greener world?

Join our Race Against Climate Change by building a Formula E race car from e-waste to raise awareness of the problem, and enter our competition by July 8.

We will show you what you need to do – and you can create your unique car by choosing and using old electrical items from friends and family, and adding your design ideas.

There are three entry categories: 9-11 years, 12-16 years, and 17-21 years with entries welcomed from across the world.

Every entry has the opportunity to be shown on our website and winners will be unveiled at the Race Against Climate Change event at the London E-Prix on 29 July.

There are many different ways you can build your mini racing car. We’ve provided some instructions but feel free to use your own ideas – anything goes as long as you use e-waste and it looks like a racing car!

Let’s turn e-waste into a winning race by building a Gen3 Formula E car from Electronic Waste.
