Murph, it's a wooden three lane track probably close to 40 years old. Unsure of the length however my son's car ran a 3.00 on it last year. My ducted fan car I put together for the adult derby last year ran a 2.29. Mike
Well my Co2 blast car fell through. The hose that I obtained from a friend failed during a bench test so not enough time to finish the car before the race. The Adult derby was a blast but not the turn out I expected. My 3 entries all placed 2nd. My ducted fan car got blown away by another fan car using 3 9v batteries for 27v on a 12v motor. My modified car got edged out by a hundredth of a second and my stock car was beaten by my wife who used our daughters car for the adult race. It was a blast and I have some ideas to make it better next year.
