The Wonthaggi Human Powered Grand Prix is a three day event involving primary school and secondary school students racing human powered vehicles over a 1.4km street circuit, including a non-stop 24 hour race for senior students.

The Human Powered 24 hour race involves the racing of 3 or 4 wheeled recumbent vehicles around a 1.4km street circuit in Wonthaggi (view Grand Prix track). The race involves teams of 8 people and is a test of endurance for the vehicles and the competitors.

Competitors also have to present their vehicles to a panel of judges for scrutineering of safety features before being allowed to race.
