Number of heats depend on the number of vehicles that register for that class an example is: i.e. 16 vehicles will be 2 heats of 8, of which top 4 will go to final, bottom 4 to consolation round.  6 or less vehicles will be last man standing, clocks are not officially running unless you are sitting there or not making hits for an obvious amount of time, if it looks like you are sitting or not making hits within the 90 seconds it will be up to the head timer or arena director to flag you out. Be aware you can’t just sit there and still be in the competition •
Consolation round top 2 cars go to final  •
 Vehicles will be timed at 90 seconds from green flag to next hit. If you do not make a hit within the 90 seconds you will be timed out, you will need to put your flag up to show you are out. Be aware of flagger • Heat ends when the second to last car has timed out  •
 The clock will be reset after a red flag. Watch the arena director or flaggers, you must stop when the red flag comes out •
Make big hits, this is a demolition derby show where carnage happens.  The crowd and driver’s love it. No sandbagging, no clock running, no wimpy hits, make big hits. The flaggers, arena directors are watching •

About the event

Our History

Derby 2018 Grand Forks Fair

In the late summer of 2017 Demolition Derby was brought to the Grand Forks Fall Fair.  With the support of the Fall Fair and a dedicated committee group that includes  Wes Tetlock, Darrell  and Corinna Chard, Craig & Jan Beliveau, Rod & Kerry Plotnikoff, Darcey Yates Roberts,  Jason and Kelly McIver, Paul Whitford, Kristin Tetlock

The committee worked hard and it paid off. The show was a hit with spectators and a saviour to the fair as they were struggling for attendance.


2018 brought an even more exciting show, more cars, more spectators, Kids Power Wheels Derby and a professional events crew to help with running and promoting the show. Light Up The Sky Events brought a crew from throughout BC.

With the help of a great crew 2019 is bound for even more excitement. Stay Tuned...

Grand Forks is the perfect backdrop for families and retirees, with a strong commitment to healthy living, affordability and great quality of life. Incorporated in 1897, Grand Forks is the “hub” of the Boundary Region, located between the Okanagan Valley and the Kootenays. Our community is surrounded by fresh, pristine water from the Granby and Kettle Rivers and is nestled in a breathtaking and unique east/west running Valley.

Our central location means that we are only a couple of hours drive from 2 major centres; Spokane and Kelowna and that the closest regional airport is a 1 hour drive to Castlegar or a 2 hour drive to Kelowna to the International airport.
