Welcome champions and race teams to an afternoon of competition and celebration. This year’s crop of racers, representing countries all over the world, are ready to compete in the legendary Derby Daze for the title of Derby Daze World Champion!
Relive the excitement of your youth as teams assemble and decorate their own, driver supporting soapbox racer for the big race. Teams complete various challenges to get upgrades for their racer to decorate not only their car, but also their driver’s uniform. At the event’s conclusion a Derby Daze race-off determines the winning team!
Upon arrival, guests are greeted with a welcoming ceremony and pep band music, as the announcer introduces the schedule of events for the day. The excitement mounts as teams form their Pit Crews and assign roles such as Crew Chiefs, Buyers and Drivers, all with an eye on the winner’s circle. Pit Crew Teams compete in a series of challenges and earn vouchers to purchase necessary supplies from our local merchants. Teams are challenged to use their best strategy to build, decorate, promote and race their customized team racer.
Once cars are assembled, Pit Crew Teams lineup for the Derby Parade of cars, display their team spirit, and present their car to a panel of judges. Several heats are raced to determine the top finishers. Prizes may be awarded for Most Creative Car, Best Team Spirit and ultimately Your Company’s World Champion!
