Daft Punk race car makes debut at Monaco Grand PrixBy Kelsey Fowler | May 27th, 2013 | 1 Comment »
Oasis lead singer Liam Gallagher might think he could write the new Daft Punk song “Get Lucky” in a “fu***** hour,” but it seems unwise to challenge this helmet-clad duo to a race these day. After all, with their brand new race car, they’d probably win.
Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, in full robot wear, made their first public outing since the release of “Random Access Memories” on Sunday in support of their personalized race car, which competed in the Monaco Grand Prix.
Daft Punk’s traditional helmet-wear fit right in at the race track with their car raced by Britain’s Formula 1 Lotus team. The F1 team uploaded photos of the “two extra crew members” to their Twitter.
The Twitter page has been Daft Punk-ed out as well, with the two artists serving as the cover photo. The team also posted a link to “create your own” paper Daft Punk cut-out.
Unfortunately, the Daft Punk car didn’t help driver Romain Grosjean “get lucky,” as he was forced to leave the race after a collision.
