Dress code


Build the whacky racer of your dreams... if you can convince your sponsors that it's worth the money!

What You'll Be Doing...

  • Each team is given a starter kit containing the basic building materials, including the solid structure of the kart
  • After an initial briefing you'll brainstorm what your racing creation is going to look like (the best looking machines will win pole position for the final showdown)
  • You'll have to acquire any other materials you require by launching a successful sponsorship bid
  • This includes how your machine will look, what your branding will be and why you think your team is going to win the company grand prix
  • When the time limit runs out, you'll take your kart to the starting line to race and be first to the chequered flag!

More About Chequered Flag...

Our chequered flag activity is an away day experience that'll test your team's ability to think laterally and creatively. It also aims to enhance marketing skills in an exciting scenario that'll see colleague's young and old working together to design, build and race their very own dream machines.

Don't expect any flashy Mercedes or Lamborghini's here though; the cars you'll be building are certainly of the 'whacky racers' variety. But just how they'll end up looking depends on how much funding you can create off the basis of your team's pitch to the wealthy backers who will invest in what they think are the most promising sounding ideas.

First that means designing your cars. After splitting into teams, brainstorm what your perfect machine will look like. Will the creative department have the strongest ideas? Or will it be the financial team that show as yet hidden design talents?

Planning is one thing, but just as in business, execution is another. After being given a starter kit that contains only the most basic building materials (the basic structure of the kart) you'll have to launch a successful sponsorship bid to obtain funding for the extra items you need to make your design vision a reality.

You'll be pitching to sponsors with the rest of your company looking on in the audience. There's sure to be a few big laughs here, as you describe how your machine will look, what your branding will be and why you think that your crazy kart will win the company grand prix.

The more successful your bid, the more 'cash' you'll receive to spend on improving your car (you might want to make sure there's a few spare parts for the pits too).

Then, it's time for the grand finale. Discover if all the hard work's paid off as you race wheel to wheel in your company grand prix. Just remember, the best looking cars will win pole position, so the crazier your car looks the better... but it won't mean much if you can't actually get your car around the track in one piece.

Our chequered flag activity is an exciting day out that can actually provide quite the brain-teaser as you design and build your machines. It's a great away day activity; you can pitch departments against each other or spilt the teams evenly to help strengthen interdepartmental working relationships. So contact our team today to get your company away day under starter's orders.
