Dyson's day of drag racing

Dyson engineers were recently give an afternoon to get creative as they set about building their own powered race cars.

Utilising the same technology as that in Dyson’s vacuum cleaners and hand-dryers, the remit appears to be invention and speed. 

Thankfully the Dyson folks recorded their efforts for us to enjoy. 

Some are clearly better than others, with a couple veering off into the sides of the makeshift racetrack. However, we particularly liked the guy who conjured up a Dyson go-kart.

Perhaps Dyson will be joining the likes of McLaren, Red Bull and Ferrari on the F1 circuit in the not too distant future. Well you’ve got to start somewhere, right?

Either way it’s certainly a novel form of team bonding and we hope to see the benefits in future Dyson products.

Pocket-lint recently got its hands on the Dyson DC 41 vacuum cleaner. You can find out what we thought of it by clicking here.
