The Conway Cardbord Car Derby is held as part of the Conway EcoFest, scheduled for Saturday October 8, 2016 at Laurel Park in Conway. see photos below.
The 2016 Derby, which now allows use of other recycled materials in construction , is similar to the gravity propelled Soap Box Derbies or cardboard sled races, and is intended as an enjoyable means to promote teamwork at home, work, or play, as well as demonstrate the intrinsic worth of discarded or reused materials.
This is open to individuals, families, organizations, youth groups, schools and commercial businesses. Vehicles may be simple, silly, elaborate, promotional and/or highly engineered vehicles. Let your imagination go! Recognition for all participants, too!
