Workshops are an optional event for boys to work on their cars.  Boys will be instructed in the basics of car construction and will have access to basic tools.  Tigers and first timers can expect to spend a minimum of 1-2 hours on a car.  Experienced racers may spend much more time perfecting their designs.  There are many websites and videos with valuable tips and tricks for car design.
