"Official" PC Derby rules

Post by sigurd » Sat Jan 31, 2004 9:31 am

Hi,

I was reading somwehere, but can't remember where, about an effort to standardize the set of rules governing a PC Derby. Does anyone have a link or ideas?

Thanks.

So far, haven't noticed anything other that the normal "noise". It is a common sentiment, and every holder has a set of "perfect" rules to suggest at that standard.

For some more comments and requirements, see http://derbytalk.com/viewtopic.php?t=37 ... ight=rules

Hello from Santee CA.

I hope by PC you mean "Pine Car" and not "Politically Correct". We have too much to worry about running a race already.

Who would create those standardized rules? The dozen or so parent organizations that sponsor derbies? The dozens of companies that make derby kits and accessories?

"The nice thing about standards is that there are so many to choose from."
