The Nerdy Derby has been a hit of the Westport Maker Faire since I built it 7 years ago. We are frequently asked to set it up for other local events (like the Rotary’s annual “Duck Race”). In 2019 I decided to rebuild it to make it quicker and easier to transport, and add a proper starting mechanism as well as some new “bling”.

The Derby can now be set up without any additional tools, and there are some fancy “flame” panels on the sides I cut with my Maslow CNC machine that Meghan hand-painted.
