This is one of the greatest team events available in the UK today and no one can do it like us. This event encompasses all the elements of a Grand Prix race, including driving, reactions, pit stops and the seasons championship points.
GP teams offer a perfect system to analyse and follow when it comes to team structure and team performance, it is also a perfect structure for delegates to understand and relate to. The idea is that within a race that the ultimate goal for everyone is the same, however when you break down individual and sub team performance there is a huge level of importance on each persons roll and the success of their roll. We aim to replicate both the elements of team structure along with the fun competition element of F1 racing, giving delegates a chance to experience all the thrills and spills.
In this event teams will coordinate a pit stop challenge, (which involves leadership, role allocation, team work and more), a simulator race, a reaction test and even a mini championship. Also as part of the event we start with the design element of creating a team and a brand, just like the teams.
In the Pit Stop Element to the event, teams will get to plan and execute a life like pit stop challenge, including fueling, tyre choice according to weather predictions and of course changing the wheels on the car in the fastest possible time.
Each team member will also get to hop in behind the wheel of an F1 car and race head to head on one of the world famous circuits. Fortunately this takes place in simulators so you will not damage yourself or more importantly others around you.
Our reaction test consists of the incredible Batak game, which Jenson Button got one of the highest possible scores. This is your chance to beat Jenson and make your way to the top.
In our mini championship on the scalextric track, teams will have to complete a racing season to show that consistency is key.
A cumulative time will be given for each teams performance in each discipline and a race position ascertained.
The event will show or highlight a number of aspects of team work and achievement:
1) The importance of individual roles within a team. Showing / highlighting that each and every job must be carried out with equal success and importance in order to active a higher goal (winning the race)
2) Efficiency and Effectiveness. It is no good just trying to do a job quickly, the job must be done efficiently and effectively. The pit stop highlights the issues with haste and the disastrous consequences this can have.
3) Playing to your strengths (role allocation), leadership and team work are also a huge part of the event. Teams will form and firstly they must create a brand, with which they will be preresented throughout the event.
