Residents in Punggol Organise Tamiya Car Race on Badminton Court With Real Prizes


Seems like the ’90s revival is not stopping at fashion and music alone—

Get your share of nostalgia by participating in a community Tamiya car race organised by the residents in Punggol during the June holidays.

What are Tamiya Cars

Tamiya cars are essentially car toys and models produced by Tamiya, a Japanese model kid and radio-controlled car manufacturer.

Everyone and anyone who had a flair with building things had their hands on one back in the day as you could customise the cars and race them to win in Tamiya racing tournaments.

Specifically, the ones used by the residents in Punggol Breeze are the Mini 4WD (or four-wheel drive) cars which are battery operated electric motor cars that can only move forward.

Car Racing Event Held on a Weekly Basis

In the Punggol Breeze Residents’ Network (RN) Facebook group, several racing events had already been held in the past weeks.

There are two types of races held by the group: one is the weekly race and the other is what the group terms as the Mega race, which occurs at the badminton court located between Block 618C & 624A.

The latest weekly race will be held on Sunday, 12 June.

Mega races only occur on every last Sunday of the month.

Prizes that can be won during such races include trophies, certificates, and Tamiya accessories.

Residents will also offer to chip in to contribute more prizes for future competitions.

Great Family Bonding Event for Punggol Residents

According to MustShareNews, families with their young and old take this opportunity to bond over their love for Tamiya cars.

The races are free of charge and encourage Punggol residents to participate in friendly races with their own Tamiya car models.

In addition, the event seems to be a hit especially among young children who are seen taking pictures with their car models and won certificates from their participation in the Mini car races.

Community Effort for Race to Go On

The race tracks set up for the Tamiya car races are done by the residents in Punggol.

When the races end, the community space will also be cleared up by fellow residents in the area much to the gratitude of the organisers.

The cherry on top is that the community will also organise workshops for free for children to attend where they can learn how to improve their Tamiya cars for their next race.
