In true challenger spirit, this year’s Hot Wheels Legends Tour competition is geared up to be bigger than ever before. With stops spanning 14 countries and 5 continents, the 2021 showdown will feature both live and virtual events kicking off in April with Livestream stops in New Zealand (April 15), Australia (April 22), and the U.S. and Canada (April 29).
“Finding time to build isn’t always easy, but with many spending more time at home in the garage over the past year, we expect to see so many more passion-project submissions for the 2021 Hot Wheels Legends Tour,” said Ted Wu, Global Head of Hot Wheels Design at Mattel. “Last year, we received more than 10,000 entries, and with the added international stops, this year’s competition is expected to be more impressive with more vehicle variety than ever.”
Since its launch in 2018 to celebrate Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary, the Hot Wheels Legends Tour has grown from an American-based series of local Walmart events across the United States to the world’s largest travelling car show, bringing in builders and automotive fans through both virtual and live events. In 2021 the Hot Wheels Legends Tour will be featuring stops in a dozen new countries, including Australia with Big W, New Zealand with The Warehouse and more.
