I've taken on a party that has a formula one theme. I want to try and theme a couple of games and routines. so far all i@ve managed to come up with is playing corners with the corners named after teams (ferrari, mclaren, etc) and doing john breed's magic painting routine with a racing car (that's if I can find suitable artwork.

Any ideas?

Does anyone if it's possible to get any checkered flag silks?

Mark, I've seen a blendo using black and white silks on the Practical Magic website (Mine were printed by Wonder Imagery as part of their Hare and Tortoise set)

Other ideas - Charlie's Invisible Message - using laminated pictures of Formula One cars

Puppet routine about driving - get the kids to do actions + sounds with you each time you/puppet say a word - eg drive (turn wheel of car), left, right, overtake, slam on brakes

Road safety / starting - stratosphere

Cat and mouse - having Vettel chasing Webber

Corners game - use racing corners eg Gambon Corner

Teams - winding-up racing cars on string

champagne squirting everywhere

How about a chop cup using the trophy? Airborne with the champagne bottle,linking steering wheels?
How about making a mini illusion and have a toy car appear using a production box or blackart (see Andrew Mayne vid?)
Have a remote control car and make a mini cargo net disappearance.I intend to make one some day.
How about a costume bag and make your favourite team t shirt appear after taking out from it a small trophy,a gear stick(made from an appearing wand with a knob attached)and other F1 related paraphernalia. I think I saw Dan Harlan vid somewhere where he takes a golf ball out of an empty bag and a golf club and then transform it into a golfing tee shirt.

Maps, Dan Harlan does have an effect with a golfing theme. It's in the "Packs Small Play Big" dvds. You could perform this effect and have substitute a racing related shirt versus the golf themed one.

"HOT ROD" is not a racing specific effect, but the colours on it can be themed to a racing idea. Red, Yellow, Green, etc...
In addition, how can you forget that it's called a "Hot Rod" as well? What could be more relevant eh?
Here's to your success Mr. Mark!

With a little extra thought you could transform all of the golf-related props from my routine into F1 stuff. The bag becomes a racing shirt, the club becomes a staff with the checkered flag on it, even the golf ball can be replaced with a miniature trophy... or something. Have a go at it and you might just come up with something really cool!
