Tool Powered Mini-Race Cars Reach 75 MPH

We have a tool racing competition here in America but across the pond the Brits have taken tool racing one step further by creating actual tool powered vehicles that can reach speeds of up to 75 mph!
These vehicles are like high-tech soap box derby cars and can be run from chainsaws, disc cutters, leaf blowers and like this years winner, Makita circular saws (6 of them from Toolstation).
