The Formula 1 Challenge
Teams are given a wooden chassis, wheels, and an axle. It’s a start, but it’s not enough to become the F1 champions!
Your teams will compete in a series of challenges and answer on-theme questions. Each time you are successful, you receive more prize money in the budget to put towards vehicles. It’s about more than just the cars, though. Teams will be tasked with conjuring up a unique brand, which will filter through to the overall design and even the pit teams’ uniforms.
Once confident in your idea, you can pitch for sponsorship, the better the overall product, the more investment you will receive. Beware, though, the more you accept, the more you’ll have to do in return, perhaps branding your whole car in logos. Now you’ve filled your coffers, you can buy the additional parts you need to build your very own Grease Lightning.
As this is an indoor challenge, it’s the humans that race at the end, not the cars in our pit stop challenge. Take your vehicle to the allocated area, raise it off the floor, and race to change all four tires. Winners receive prize money and teams will also be scored on the safety of the vehicle, the aesthetic, and the branding of the car.
The team with the most money at the end, including leftover money from sponsors, takes the prize of F1 champs!
