Drivers Set World Record At Hot Wheels Double Loop
Rally car driver Tanner Foust and stuntman Greg Tracy set a world record on Saturday at the X Games, by driving two rally cars through a 66-foot double vertical loop on the Hot Wheels Double Loop Dare track.
According to the LA Times, "The pair drove approximately 52 mph on the track before hitting the loop and experiencing seven Gs of force while going through the loop -- at a height of six stories."
ESPN adds, "The track, two football fields long, was modeled on Mattel's Hot Wheels Double Dare Snare toy racetrack set. Foust and Tracy smashed the previous record for the largest loop in a car, set at 42 feet in September 2011 by Chinese driver Li Yatao in a Lotus 5 Sportback for Zhejiang Youngman Lotus Automobile Co., Ltd. in Shanghai."
