We recommend that up to 5 students share one of our GADD racers and work as a team.

A team consists of:
• Crew chief
• Mechanic
• Driver
• Artist
• Public relations agent

Other students in the class act as race officials.

This is a real life scenario where students experience first hand what it is like to work together as a team towards the common goal of winning a race.
