Is slot car racing educational?

I was asked by a school teacher if slot car racing was educational, what could kids learn from it, so I thought that from the wealth of knowledge and experience available here you could come up with some answers that I can pass on to her.

Yep, teaches kids how to deal with losing and adversity - altho a lot of adults have yet to learn that either! Also, what it takes to win, attention to detail, basic technical skills and taking care of your tools; how to marshall for the other guy (guess everybody skipped class that particular day!).

There have been a number of school-based clubs. I think the US magazine SARN had a feature on this so you might check on their website...
