Just like professional racing, the Rickety Rackety Car Derby is about the crew and driver. The first order of business will be to elect a Pit Crew Boss. The Pit Crew Boss will provide overall supervision for this team challenge. Once the team has decided on a theme for their car, the Pit Boss will assign each team member a role. Each team member must work together in their various roles if they are to revel in the winner’s circle.
Teams are provided tires, axles, limited lumber and some tools. Teams develop a blueprint, build a car complete with chassis and body, pass a safety inspection and then “Let the Race Begin.” For those who prefer a less “physical” role, there is also a racing suit to be designed, as well as a team chant to create.
Teams will be judged not only on their teamwork, but meeting budget and building within specification. The final challenge will be a series of races on a downhill plywood track. Do you want to build consensus in your group? Do you want to strengthen communication skills while promoting a sense of camaraderie? Then ‘Pimp Your Ride’ – it’s the best deal on wheels!
This team building program comes complete with sound, music, decorations and awards for the top two teams, plus all necessary car building supplies and tools. TeamBonding also provides an engaging Master of Ceremonies, and our own enthusiastic team of courteous event staff to ensure that all goes smoothly.
Approximately 1.5 – 3 hours
An empty parking lot or large paved area is ideal. We’re also happy to stage this event in a large indoor space. Depending on the size of the group the minimum will be 5,000 – 10,000 sq ft.
“We couldn’t be more satisfied with our Rickety Rackety Derby experience. Your team responded quickly and were able to scale up or down based upon the meeting size. This tied in directly to the theme of our meetings. At one location, we were asked to quiet down by a meeting going on next door we were having too much fun!”R.W. – Shell Oil
“I’ve received nothing but good feedback on the car derby. We did a survey and everyone gave the team building activity a great rating! They hope that we do something similar next year. Thanks again!”M.W. – LexisNexis
