Make Your Team a Well-Oiled Machine

It’s a proven fact; groups that work well together are more effective, more productive, and more successful — not to mention happier! Yet, motivating and inspiring cooperation can be tricky, especially when typical team building activities tend to get more eye rolls than high-fives.

Let The International Soap Box Derby® bring collaboration, creativity, and excitement to your next team building activity with the Corporate Derby Challenge. This high-energy event ignites large companies, small business, and community organizations as they design, build, and compete at the world famous Derby Downs.


Teams will build their cars from the parts that are provided and then decorate them to fit their company / organizations theme. Once the teams have finished building their cars they will then weigh in and take some practice runs down the track. Now it is time to race!
