Flag Welcome to GrandPrix Software Central! Flag

Our goal is to provide high quality products that will help with planning and conducting Cub Scout® Pinewood Derby®, Awana® Grand Prix, Space Derby®, Raingutter Regatta and other similar races. With these races, many things have to be juggled like ensuring fairness, creating schedules, tracking results, determining awards, creating the feel of a real race, and more.

Since 2002, we have been providing software solutions to help make running your race easier, more efficient, fun, and fair. Our software is professionally written, maintained and supported and has been used successfully for thousands of races.  It has also been used for many corporate races and special events (see the Corporate and Special Races section below) and adult racing leagues.  This includes the 2016 and 2017 Ford Fast Track Races for Girl Scouts, the 2016 Ford Fast Track Finals on the Today Show, the Pinewood Derby World Championships, the Mid America Pinewood Derby, and for breaking the Guinness World Record for the longest Pinewood Derby track. Our software has also been used for many STEM/STEAM events.

We do also offer many non-software products to help you run a fun, fair and efficient race. These include race decorations, digital scales and accessories, inspection gauges, computer accessories, car carrying trays, workshop supplies, and more.
