About this event

GO KART GO! is a team-based event that focuses participants on planning, strategy, problem-solving , resource management and teamwork. Teams must build a ‘people-powered’ kart and then put their kart to the test in a series of challenges.

The event is in 3 parts...

In Part One, teams receive a list of all of the resources in the challenge. Some of the items are essential, teams must acquire these in order to move onto part two. Some items are optional – they are non-essential but will provide your team with a competitive advantage. Teams take part in a head-to-head challenge to obtain as many resources as possible.

In Part Two, teams build and test their kart in preparation for the challenges. The karts are ‘people-powered’ so teams must work out the best and most efficient design. Karts must all pass a WOF test to ensure they are safe and ready for action! Extra points up for grabs here too!

In Part Three, teams put their kart to the test in a series of team-based challenges. The challenges can be done indoors in a large gymnasium (or similar) or outside on a flat grass area/field. Challenges include collecting balls, negotiating the course without spilling water and the all-important ‘pit-stop challenge’ where the team must change riders.

The event concludes with a points tally, announcement of the winning team and prize-giving where we acknowledge teams and individuals.

Client review

“The participants had an awesome time. It really was a great way to start the conference. I have found the whole CluedUp team so obliging and easy to deal with, a real pleasure to work with.”
