Wellington: A one of a kind teapot racing will feature at the CubaDupa festival in Wellington where ten converted teapots from various Steampunk groups around New Zealand will tackle the obstacle course.

Steampunk founder Leslie Craven aka Colonel Julius Hawthorne said that teapot racing was harder than it sounded as one really had to take it slowly and gently and it was quite tense because one was against the clock, Stuff.co.nz reported.

The race consists of radio-controlled vehicles with teapots attached being timed while individually navigating an obstacle course with tunnels, ramps and jumps.

Teapot racing originated in Dunedin and had its first public outing at the 2014 Steampunk NZ Festival in Oamaru.
