Teams motor through tasks earning points to buy vital model car components for a drag strip finale. Witness an explosion of energy and creativity with this dynamic car themed team building event. A packed crowd is buzzing with excitement, eagerly awaiting the start of the first race. Teams create and construct their cars by participating in a series of team challenges. They design and decorate banners and promotional materials to support and cheer on their team.
Then its time for the race. The teams line up at the start. When the flag flies, mechanics pump air into the rocket forcing the car off the starting grid. The straighter and truer the course the further the cars will travel. The winner, of course, is the car that travels the furthest down the track!
Team Torque is a truly exhilarating event that can take be staged during dinner or at breakout periods throughout the day in preparation for the final race.
So start your engines . . . . rev up . . . . and get ready to race!
Teams must draw on their communication, leadership and project management skills in a series of exercies in order to gain the components to construct their cars and then build them with a limited amount of resources within an alloted time. Creativity and innovation is required to design a team slogan and banner.The race itself is a fun, energising and motivational exercise which enhances team dynamics and unties teams
Corporate Social Responsibility Outcomes
Team Torque is ideally suited to CR initiaties. It has been used to raise money for schools, hospitals and disaster relief. Prior to the event, teams can seek sponsorship for their cars with the proceeds going to the desired charity. In other cases, teams bet on the winning cars, with the winners donating their winnings.
Team Torque was loved by our entire staff and very integral to our team development. I hope to plan another event with Catalyst soon!
