BOSTON’S ONLY PINEWOOD DERBY RACE WHERE YOU CAN GET A DRINK!


HERE ARE THE DETAILS


The What

A pinewood derby is a racing event for unmanned miniature cars. The races will be Sunday, August 7th.


The Cars

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.


The Track

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.


The Ladder

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!


The Build

Basic kits are available online or at the distillery.


The Race Day

SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY


The races start at 2 pm and continue till 5 pm. Racers are free to show up any time during racing hours. New cars start at the bottom of the ladder. We will keep an active race list. Races will be run at a set interval dependent on the number of participants on race day (every 5 mins).
