On arrival cars will be allotted a number from preregistration, measured and weighed.  Please be aware we will be using just one set of scales and they will be definitive!  There will be an area for adjustments to be made, if needed, before cars are impounded.

 

The racing will take place in a separate area away from registration.  Only scouts and their parents from the same rank will be allowed in.

 

All cars will race four times, once in each lane.  The times will then be averaged. The winner will be the fastest average car.  Trophy presentation will be at the end of racing for your rank.

 

Please remind all racers and their parents that the Scout Law applies.  We are all volunteers doing our best.
