Derby Timer™ Single Lane Track Timer

Sold Out

A single lane Derby Timer is perfect for a basement or garage test track, to test and tune your cars prior to a race event!

Derby Timer is designed to be an affordable but fully featured single lane timer, that can be expanded with add-on lanes for multi-lane tracks.

Even with one lane, every run is a race!

Each run is compared to the previous run, and place is shown (1st or 2nd), along with time differential.

(Here is a video I made a while ago with my son, using a pre-production model.  Shipping units have some minor cosmetic differences, and do not show time until after the car finishes; but have much higher timing precision.)
