The boys at Top Gear recently showed us a double loop world record on their live tour of South Africa. The team at Hot Wheels have gone one better. They’ve reconstructed one of their popular Hot Wheels loop tracks in real-life at the X Games this weekend they’ve taken Hot Wheels to 1:1 scale.
The X-Games is a crazy event with crazy stunts and even more crazy individuals. Two such men were Tanner Foust and Greg Tracy who sat behind the wheels of real cars (highly modified of course) aimed at two loop tracks that merge into one.
Sure it’s one big PR stunt for Hot Wheels, but you’ve got to admit it’s a whole lot of awesome.
