As soon as the car gets an initial push, it shoots off like a rocket, reaching incredibly high speeds almost instantly. This exhilarating experience is known as tether car racing. In this unique sport, a miniature car powered by a tiny engine is tethered to a central pivot, guiding it along a circular path.

The person stationed at the pivot plays a crucial role, helping the car accelerate to competitive speeds. Remarkably, these miniature marvels can reach speeds exceeding 200 miles per hour. The car with the highest average speed over a set number of laps is crowned the winner.

The concept of tether car racing combines precision engineering and raw speed, making it a thrilling spectacle. Imagine the G-force a hamster would feel if it were inside that speeding car!
