Enginuity Converts Power Tools Into Racing Cars

Enginuity Converts Power Tools Into Racing Cars

Saturday 29th May to Sunday 6th June



The first ever Enginuity Power Tool Grand Prix will take place during the late spring half term from 29 May until 6 June, when amazing activities and demonstrations will reveal how power tools can be converted into speedy racing machines.

Anyone bored with their old Black & Decker, Dewalt or Bosch power tools should go along to the design and technology attraction in Shropshire’s Ironbridge Gorge for a new take on motor sports and witness the spectacle of interactive shows demonstrating a range of Belt Sander Drag Racers on Enginuity’s giant 25 metre race track.

A programme of family drop-in activities will also take place during the week, allowing visitors to convert household objects such as dust pan brushes and paint rollers into drag racers and test them on the race track.  There will be a small charge of £2.50 for each model made plus admission.

The Enginuity Power Tool Grand Prix 2010 will take place in the Engine Shop and will run from 10.30am until 4pm with a break for lunch.

Activities and workshops vary day-to-day and some carry an extra charge in addition to the museum admission fee, for further information, contact the Ironbridge Tourist Information Centre on Tel: 01952 884 391 or visit www.ironbridge.org.uk.
