Singapore Book of Records – The Cardboard Race Car Challenge!

On 24th March 2016, as early as 0800 hrs, 1,300 staff from a global early education organisation arrived at FOCUS Adventure; on the sandy beach of the State of Fun, Sentosa for their Staff Day. This is the first time all six early childhood education brands from the organisation in Singapore came together.

It was an extremely hot day but the heat did not dry up the passion and enthusiasm of the fun loving staff who tried their hands on the “Sporty” and “Creative” activities such as building race cars out of limited cardboards and other resources, rowing in our unique dragon boats, kayaking and FOCUS Adventure’s latest activity; The Bubble Challenge!, just to name a few.

The main highlight was the Cardboard Race Car competition. A total of 92 teams raced in a unique relay, 2 “drivers” (2 members from each team) had to race while wearing their own custom built cardboard cars. The difficulty of the race was raised as the “drivers” were blindfolded and needed to be guided by another team member.

Unkown to the participants, their organisation was in the midst of setting a new Singapore Book of Records. 4 rounds of Heats and the Finals were conducted under the invigilation of the representative from Singapore Book of Records. Under the scorching hot sun, the fastest car emerged after 30 minutes of racing and a new Singapore Book of Records for the “Largest Wearable Cardboard Box Race” was set with a total of 282 people in 141 wearable cardboard cars.

Other highlights of the day included the generous prizes awarded to the best teams for the following activities;

The Sandcastle Challenge!
The Alpha Link Challenge!
The Trebuchet Challenge!
The Dodge Ball Challenge!

Prizes were also awarded to the Top 5 teams with the Best Cardboard Race Car Design and Fastest in completing the Cardboard Race Car.

The Staff Day ended successfully with the Singapore Book of Records Award being presented to the group’s CEO!
