Racing with saws

Most drag racers are powered by extremely powerful engines, the type that could get a jet to lift off from a runway. But not this dragster. No, this one is powered by six circular saws…

The lil drag racer was built as an entrant into the Power Tool Drag Racing Championship in Teovil, England. Yes, there’s a whole championship based around power tool drag racing, and this looks to be the grandaddy of the entrants. They won’t divulge its top speed, but they will say that it “superseded all expectations.” My expectations would be for it to go slowly and then accidentally kill someone when one of the saws flies off, so here’s hoping it does better than that.
