Tool supplier Silverline Tools has launched the 2010 Silverline Power Tool Drag Racing Championship.
The event will take place at the Fleet Air Arm Museum in Yeovil, Somerset on September 25 and 26.
The championship involves transforming hand held power tools into lean mean drag racing machines in two categories – ride-on and non-ride-on.
Commonly used tools in the ride-on class are petrol chainsaws and leaf blowers. Some competitors start with the frame of an existing vehicle such as a go kart, while others start from scratch.
The non ride-on side of the event tends to use smaller tools such as belt sanders, angle grinders, drills and circular saws.
Previous events have been covered by Channel 5’s Gadget Show and competitors have come from as far as America to take part.
