Cars made from recycled materials race through Peru

STORY:

This is Peru's 'crazy car' contest

Location: Lima, Peru

All the vehicles are made from recycled materials

More than 20 cars competed in the race

including a Batmobile and a Super Mario car

Contestants crafted their own racing vehicles

[Cristian Rosas, Contestant]

“Our car is super welded. We have recycled some parts, going from garage to garage to gather items to assemble it and to make a safe car.”

The race was part of celebrations

to mark San Miguel district’s 102nd anniversary
