Calm Before the Chaos

Yannick How Wong catches a glimpse of peaceful front campus before U of T’s annual chariot race

Yannick How Wong captured this serene and snowy image of University College in early January 2010 – right before chaos ensued on front campus. Hordes of students gathered at King’s College Circle for the annual Ye Grande Olde Skule Chariot Race, where rival teams of engineers push and drag their one-person chariots around front campus while trying to sabotage competing chariots. “This is a deceivingly peaceful image of University College,” says How Wong, who graduated with his engineering degree in 2013. “But the calm scene was quickly overtaken by chaos, hype and excitement.”
