Freedom Aluminum Tracks
Our Freedom aluminum tracks were designed by a team of MIT engineers based on Cub Scout Leader
"How-To Book" specifications to be durable, easy to assemble and easy to store.
here to see a video of our track being asssembled.
The Freedom Tracks come with an unconditional guarantee: No matter how old your track is, if you feel you haven't gotten your moneys worth, we will do what it takes to make it right!
We also have technical support 24 hours a day - 7 days a week
Our track is assembled straight and flat, then two 10 lb. weights are added to create the bow. Because the lanes flex as a unit, they are not susceptible to lane-to-lane variations as in some pre-bent tracks. This design also makes storage easier because it can be packed flat in a case only 6 inches tall! (For example= 96” long, 15” wide, 6” tall). More
All of our tracks are extruded on our own custom designed die from 6061-T6511 aluminum.This material is resistant to corrosion and has a high surface hardness to insure against the denting and nicking prevalent in other aluminum tracks. More
Cross-section of track.
We thought we would demonstrate the toughness of our track by driving over it with a front end loader. No other track on the market can survive this test.
We also have an Anodized Option available to protect the aluminum surface of your track. Our experience has been that even after ten years the anodized track looks like new.
We believe in the anodizing process so much that if you get a scratch on the surface of your anodized track, ship it to us and Derbywizard will replace it for only the price of shipping. For information on the anodizing process click here.
You can choose from 2, 3, 4 or 6 lanes and from 32’, 40’ or 48’ lengths. You can add additional lanes and length anytime in the future.
Our tracks include:
- Mechanical Start Gate
- All hardware for assembly (except the two 10 lb. weights - the shipping is way too expensive for you to pay and the weights are readily availble at your local discount stores for less than $20.00!)
- The stand
- The braking system
- Our newly designed Light Tree & Automatic Gate Release is an exciting way to start your races.
- Set one of our Pinewood Staging Stadiums next to your starting line. This sturdy yet lightweight multiple car display stand stores and organizes up to 48 cars!

More information and prices
We have a wealth of options for our timers. They are available with or without the ability to send times to a computer, as a kit or fully assembled, or bundled with a laser start gate at a reduced price. To help you decide visit our "How to choose a timer" page.
Additional Timer Options:
- If viewing the race results from the front and the back of the timer is an option you would like, our Double Vision Timer is available in the K2 and K3 models.
- For your Derbywizard Timer that has the computer serial interface option, we have the Remote Time Display that shows lanes times and place of finish anywhere you set it (It comes with a 40' cable). No computer is required although you may use one with it.
- Since very accurate race starts are important, we carry a Laser Start Gate that projects a laser beam across the starting line. When the cars are released, they interrup the beam and the timer begins counting. Very high tech!
- If you purchase the Computer Serial Interface (which only sends the race times to your computer), you might be interested in Race Management Software. We sell two compatible packages: GPRM - GrandPrix Race Manager Pro Software and GPRL - GrandPrix Race Manager Lite Software. They will allow you to run races based on fastest or average time, plus much more. Derby Master and Derby Day! software packages are also compatible with our timers and is available directly from their websites.
Is your race outdoors or away from an electricity source? Our Battery Pack is the answer! It uses 6 "C" batteries (not included) for hours of racing.
