Pinewood Derby Car Showcase – October 14, 2016

We received these four cars from Tim Grimstead and his children. Thanks Tim.
Optimus Prime – Rohan

My 5 year old son, Rohan, won first in design for Cubbies with his Optimus Prime car and took first in overall speed. At the awards ceremony Rohan received a speeding ticket from a Sheriff Deputy and was cuffed.
Fireball – Chloe

My 11 year old daughter, Chloe, took second in overall speed and first in design for her group with her Fireball.
Froggy – Tessa

Tessa, my 9 year old daughter, placed fourth for overall speed and first for design with her Frogger car. The Frogger’s front end broke half way through the event but still placed. It was a short track; there was nothing to absorb the impact at the end.
Ziggity – Flora

Flora, my 7 year old daughter, won first in design for her group with her Ziggity car, and ended around fifth for speed. I suspect the placing was do to the inability of the car’s front-end  to trigger the timing light accurately.
