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.

I`ve run two sessions for St Augustines High School close to Phoenix.

The group was made up of teachers and A level students and the relevance concerned Control. In the case of our circuit we have a number of gadgets that make up the circuit plus various F 1 car components including Jenson Buttons` cars` wish bones,brake system and fuel manifold and gear shift hydraulic manifold etc etc.

As a package using Scaley F1 cars and demonstrating the use of resistors etc to control the cars and of course the additional fun factor (day out for the teachers!) all seemed happy and are returning Tuesday for another session ,
