RACING LEGENDS

RACING LEGENDS

The “Racing Legends” automaton is both an animated spectacle and an acoustic experience, combining the gripping motion of a race for victory with the pure resonance of music. It’s a journey through time that traces the evolution of the automobile from the sleek purity of the first race vehicles to the technical prowess of today’s F1 cars.

The five cars are the only items that stand above the glass: they levitate without touching it thanks to an ingenious magnetised system. The players are invited to scan a QR code printed on the small magnets of each vehicle to discover more about the car of their choice. They are directed to a special secret webpage describing each Formula 1 in a specific decade with many anecdotes and in-house secrets:

Upon activation of a discreet launch button, the five cars are set into motion. The race starts and bets are cast among the players but no one knows its outcome yet because a different car wins each time. Behind this apparent game of chance, there’s an incredibly intricate mechanism bearing a set of cams that engage with one of the five cars on a random basis. The true ingeniousness of the Manufacture of REUGE consisted in creating Racing Legends with a sense of unpredictability so as to give its viewers and the F1 lovers the thrill of never knowing how the race will end.
