Go-Kart Competition

Start your engines! In this high-speed event, the goal is to build and race custom people-powered go-karts. While the chassis is built to strict specifications, the design team works on a unique custom theme for the body. Crew members must work together in their various roles if they are to race their way to victory lane.

The first order of business is electing a Pit Crew Boss who will provide overall supervision.  In addition to axles, wheels, limited lumber, and tools, teams will be provided with a blueprint for their chassis, which they must follow to ensure design integrity as well as safety.

Creativity comes into play as the crews design and assemble the body of their go-kart. Formula One; Nascar; Muscle car; or something out of the ordinary like a tractor – which theme will they choose? During vehicle construction, other team members will decorate their driver’s jumpsuit so they really look the part while “behind the wheel” of their 24” x 48” go-kart.

Go-Kart Competition promotes collaboration to achieve a common goal. Throughout the program, points are gained for originality, design, creativity, and functionality.

To fire up team spirit and prepare their driver for competition, crew members will create and perform their very own “Champions’ Chant.” Once the cars pass their safety inspection, the anticipation builds as drivers suit up and head for the starting line.

Now the race is on! Drivers compete in heats, for the chance to gain the decisive points needed to put them in the winner’s circle and win the gold!

Clients Talk About this Program

Everything turned out really great. Hattie and her team were amazing. I was hoping to get her a little more information about our industry/Shimmick to help “customize” it a little more, and never got to it. But she went on to our website and did her own research, which I was very impressed by. She was able to customize it on the fly and killed it. Thank you to you and your team so much for making this happen at the last minute! BEST will definitely be our first stop for team building next year.

Shimmick Construction Company

Building the go-karts and racing them was a great team-building event. Our entire group enjoyed the activities in the Go-Kart Competition very much and your Entourage ice breaker was the most fun. Our lead facilitator Russ was very engaging and worked well with the organizers and the other facilitators.


Your instructor was extremely organized, nice, and gave great directions. We thought the best team-building aspect of the Go-Kart Competition event was the building of the Go-Karts. Our group really loved the entire program. It was perfect!

We really enjoyed the divvying of responsibilities. Everyone knew where their strengths lie and what they needed to do to get the task done. Racing cars and coming up with the “commercials” was so fun. The group enjoyed it a lot! A very fun event for all!

We just enjoyed an extremely organized Go-Kart Competition. Building the cars was a great team builder and the competition race at the end was the most fun. Our group extremely enjoyed the Go-Kart activities. We want to do one of your culinary programs next!

ExxonMobil Chemical

It was great to see people working together in person to complete a project, people who usually work on the phone together, some not at all, to complete a very time consuming task. In my opinion, the most fun was watching and participating in the go-kart race and the beginning icebreaker. I appreciated everything starting and ending on time. Time management is very important to the Quality Team, especially since our time was limited. Judging from the looks on everyone’s face, everyone really enjoyed it. We’ll recommend it to anyone!

Morton Salt

The Go-Kart Competition was extremely organized. Our group loved it! They all had a blast creating their themes for the go-carts and driver’s suits, but the most fun was the races. Great Experience!

Johnson & Johnson

Our Go-Kart Competition went really well! Our facilitator was extremely energetic and fun. The group enjoyed all of the team components that went into the building. They also really enjoyed the icebreaker at the beginning of the program. We will keep you in mind for future team building activities. Overall, great job! Thanks again.


Simply stated, the Go-Kart Competition event very effectively demonstrated the importance of team dynamics in a collaborative organizational effort to produce desired outcomes. That it was a lot of fun was icing on the cake.


We decided to use your services for our annual sales meeting again this year! We just loved the Go-Kart Competition we did last year. Your lead facilitator made our experience with your company memorable. We would really like to do a charitable program so let’s discuss what you offer. Look forward to working with you guys again!

Phillips Industries

The best “team building” aspect of our Go-Kart Competition was the mixture of different skill sets to make a finished product. The program was very organized and the kart race was the most fun. I felt your group as a whole enjoyed the activities and loved the

      What is a Keynote Speaker?

      Keynote Speaker is an often-misunderstood term associated with simply a motivational speaker, breakout speaker, industry expert, etc. Most professional speakers are not actual trained Keynote Speakers, who are specialists, therefore in much lower supply, and in higher demand.

      Keynote Speakers are experienced, professional communicators who engage an audience, capturing the essence of a client’s meeting. They are able to highlight it to their audience while simultaneously delivering their own key concepts and proprietary content in an entertaining and impactful way. Most companies understand that this specialization is very much worth the time (around an hour) and the investment.

      In order to capture the perfect essence, a Keynote Speaker spends the necessary time researching a client’s industry, their issues, and their audience to craft a customized presentation into a unique and distinctive moment specifically for the client’s event.

      As a top Keynote Speaker, Tom Leu strategically uses compelling storytelling, humor, powerful visuals, audio and video clips, and audience participation elements to weave an impactful message into your event in a fun and memorable way. Tom can also pair his Keynote with Best Corporate Events programming, laying a foundation and setting a tone that best prepares participants for maximum engagement in the forthcoming team events that day.
