BOSTON’S ONLY PINEWOOD DERBY RACE WHERE YOU CAN GET A DRINK!
HERE ARE THE DETAILS
A pinewood derby is a racing event for unmanned miniature cars. The races will be Sunday, August 7th.
Racers build their own cars from kits containing a block of pine wood, plastic wheels, and metal axles. Kits can be picked up at GrandTen for 5 bucks or find your own. Rules on how you build your car are here.
GrandTen has a two-lane 35-foot all-aluminum track. See details here. Race times are recorded to an accuracy of 0.001 of a second to determine the winner.
Each race day there will be a ladder-style bracket. The first racer of the day starts the ladder. Each racer can challenge the car 1 or 2 above them. The winner moves up, the loser moves down. The top of the ladder is the fastest car. Stay at the top until the end and you are the champion!
Basic kits are available online or at the distillery.
