Rules

  • We will follow the rules and specifications as outlined in the OFFICIAL GRAND PRIX PINEWOOD DERBY KIT insert. Please read it carefully and call if you have questions.
  • Previously built cars may not be used.
  • Only the wheels and axles which come with the kit may be used. If the wheels don't have BSA stamped on them, they're not legal! Axle spacing/placement cannot be altered - you must use the grooves already cut into the car. Solid, one piece axles (which can be purchased at the Scout Shop and hobby stores) are not allowed.
  • Once the cars have been inspected and weighed on race day, they are not to be handled again. Rules violations will result in disqualification from awards (but not from racing).
