GNCTR 2006 Homepage
History of the Race
The GNCTR began in 1974, as a joint venture between the American Concrete Institute and the University of Alberta. Since its initiation, the GNCTR has challenged its participants to use creativity, skill, and innovation in the design and construction of a concrete toboggan. The 32nd annual Great Northern Concrete Toboggan Race will be held in the first week of February 2006 in Montreal. It is being hosted jointly by Concordia University, Université de Sherbrooke, and École de technologie superiéure.
Concrete toboggans are evaluated on various technical and non-technical aspects including concrete mix design, braking system design, technical exposition, and aesthetics. To win this competition the sled must be fast, innovative, and original.
