The Western Engineering Toboggan Team will unveil its entry for the 2013 Great Northern Concrete Toboggan Race at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 8 in the Claudette MacKay-Lassonde Pavilion (CMLP) Atrium. Weather permitting, the team will perform a couple test runs on University College (UC) Hill starting at approximately 4:45 p.m.

As per competition rules, the toboggan must not weigh more than 300 pounds (136.1 kg). The running surface must be made of only concrete and every toboggan must be designed with a roll bar/cage, steering and braking system.
