Teambuilding / Conference Ice breaker
The Race - far more than a speed test
The race is not just about speed. All participants get to contribute to their team: developing the car concept, building, decorating and driving it. Before the green light is given – and in between rounds – participants work their way through a variety of challenges. The more assignments they win, the better car parts they can buy at the race shop. This activity can be organized at many suitable locations, including indoor tracks. Champagne flows for the winners!
Racing is a lot more than getting behind the wheel of a fast car and racing through the curves. After all, a good driver in a bad car doesn't stand a chance. Therefore, The Race requires a lot more from your teams than steering skills and speed. Each team constructs, tests, and uses its Go Cart during an exciting, spectacular afternoon that smells of burnt rubber. The match leader is in charge of the event.
Strict, fair, and above all discussions.
His word is law.
The warehouse is scattered with materials: wood, metal, textile, paint, … The teams are provided with drills, hammers, screws, brushes, chisels, and a maximum of 4 hours. The objective is to construct a fast racing car that will later register the sharpest time on the track.
Sturdiness, decoration, and originality also result in important points however. Whoever neglects these criteria throws away his chances for the final victory
Do you want to make the Go Car faster, more beautiful, hipper, and more impressive? With some extra parts and gadgets from the racing shop that is possible. However, these cost loads of money. And the basic equipment for the racing car has used the complete budget of the racing teams already. The participants obtain extra budget by correctly answering questions from the match leader. Knowledge, logic, or thinking through – the solution is never clear. But the reward for a correct answer is worth the trouble.
Of course, a race is not complete without a speed match. The teams are given four test rounds during the construction of their racing car, and two chrono-laps. Whoever registers the fastest time wins the race.
Your teams will do their utmost throughout the day. Do they trust their final spurt? Then they gamble for originality and decoration. Or the other way round: no frills, pure speed. Which tactics are correct? That's impossible to predict. Still, one thing is for sure: the competition will not just give away the title.
Whoever is to stand proudly on the winner's podium by the end of the day depends on four weighed factors: originality, sturdiness of the construction, decoration and speed.
