Before we learned how to build faster cars my son learned a lot when he lost. The lessons aren't are in the trophy. It's in the time spent together with an adult, using tools, understanding concepts, making mistakes and fixing them, being a good sport in winning and losing, sharing knowledge with others, making lasting memories.
If a kid can't build a fast car, for whatever reason, don't blame the slow car or the rules or the faster racers if he doesn't learn any lessons from the event, blame the adults around him.
Thank You all for your opinions. A special Thank You to those who do Workshops.

Honestly, we spend more effort running the workshops than we do running the derby itself. And I think that's the right balance. The point isn't to race wooden cars down an inclined track. The point is to promote adult-child interaction.
