Starting Grid

Starting Grid
One of the most fun aspects of coming along to a Pinewood Derby is seeing all the cars that people have invested time and effort in designing and making!

When we started running these kinds of events it quickly became apparent that participants and spectators alike would congregateĀ around the table where the cars were all placed after ‘registration’ in order to informally inspect and discuss different designs and potential competitive advantages.

The other essential function of this space is to help organise and keep an eye on each of the cars during the event, to help the race organisers collect cars before each race and place the cars in their grid position between times.

I’ve still to come up with a better way of setting this area up than sticking strips of electrical tape onto a table top in a grid pattern!
