One suggestion, we found if you elevate the track it makes viewing much better. Consider putting track on tables or risers, also saves you trouble of having to protect the floor. You may need a ladder or staging platform to get cars up on track. We are fortunate our gym has a stage, we back track up to edge of stage on several 8' folding tables. All handling and staging takes place up on stage away from crowd and potential disaster.

Top 5 in each pack race go to the district race. The top ten from each district race go to council.

For the last several years, our group has run 2 district derbies in the Minneapolis area. In both cases, packs are allowed to send the top two racers from each rank to the race. We use our 4-Lane track, use GrandPrix and a Judge, use times (eliminating worst time) for scoring, and advance the top two cars from each rank to the Championship race at the end of the day.
