The Grand Prix Take-Off System was used for the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia and the 2001 World Championships in Edmonton, Canada. The Grand Prix Take-Off System meets the high standards and rules of the IAAF and NCAA.The system consists of the foundation tray, blanking lid, take-off board and the plasticine insert.
Foundation Tray – Constructed out of 0.25” galvanized steel and reinforced by 0.25” galvanized steel angles.
Take-Off Board – Manufactured out of 1/4” thick galvanized steel understructure with a 0.75” oak top and stainless steel adjusters, providing the perfect and legal fit. The result… a board that won’t warp or deflect.
