Roland Sands Design DeLorean soapbox racer - Click above to watch the video after the break

Roads? Where we're going, we don't need roads. Only parking lots... plus a few small jumps and a high-banked turn. Oh, and we'll also need a bit of gravity, which is all that's powering Roland Sands Design's soap box derby racer. Built in the shape of a certain famous DeLorean time machine, Sands' version eschews Mr. Fusion in favor of a giant can of Red Bull, which just so happens to be the title sponsor of the event the car was competing in.

From the looks of things, this DeLorean-shaped racer performed just about flawlessly with ex-motorcycle racer Sands at the helm. See for yourself in the video after the break. If you're interested, part one can be found here. Oh, and just wait to see what happens when this baby hits 88 miles per hour!

      Me and my friends competed in the St. Louis Red Bull Soap Box Derby several years ago. Our car looked like a Derby Hat with a spoiler. (the soap box derby Derby). But we destroyed our car in a freak accident during a practice run the night before. Aaah memories...

      Wow, what a waste of 2:20 minutes of my life (hint - skip to 2:20).

      I absolutely love the DeLorean. And Back to the Future was a great movie trilogy. But after 25 years, can we please stop making constant BTTF-DeLorean references? Please?
