A classic team-building activity in Madrid designed to encourage teams to design, build and race (using only gravity, strength and courage) their very own go kart ‘soapbox’ vehicle. We’ll talk you through options when you contact us: we use spacious areas, with plenty of outdoor space and a gentle slope (to encourage a little speed). Where a slope isn’t available, we encourage raw man/woman-power, with teams pulling/pushing the carts, as well as driving them. Some of our locations also offer wonderful views.
All equipment will be on site when you arrive, as will our team of helpful ‘soapbox’ supervisors. Each go-kart needs building ‘from scratch’; there is no set way for the teams to do this. We supply pieces for a basic frame – wheels, wooden planks and pole – and more creative items for the body of the vehicle. We’ll provide PVC tubes and connectors that allow teams to build all kinds of body structures, and cardboard, wallpaper and cloth in various colours to make body ‘panels’. The supervisors are on hand to guide the teams (where needed), and will be judging on originality, creativity, style and safety consideration; using these judgments to award bonus points to the teams. Then comes the main event: the race! Teams race through a track that requires steering as well as control, with penalty points for fouling! Speed is of the utmost importance and the fastest time will be the key factor in deciding the overall winner.
Transport is provided to and from the venue. Allow around 3 hours for the activity without including snacks, bbqs and other activities.
