Top Gear Stunt Team To Try Double Loop-The-Loop

As part of their South African tour, the Top Gear Live team and their daredevil stuntmen will be performing the world’s first double loop-the-loop. That’s never been done before and if they manage to pull it off, it’ll be another world record in the bag for Top Gear. They have already mastered the art of a single loop-the-loop, but a double is a whole different ball game.

They call this trick the “Deadly 720” and they are going to stage it live in front of record 15,000 strong live audiences during four action-packed shows at this weekend’s Top Gear Festival in the Moses Mabhida Stadium, Durban, South Africa. The car in which the stunt will be attempted is a specially converted buggy fitted with hand controls to lock out the accelerator pedal during the stunt.

That is because the extreme G Force would take the drivers foot off the pedal and reduce the speed, which is critical in an stunt like this. So much so that the dashboard is fitted a large light that switches from red to green when the buggy is travelling at precisely the required velocity to complete the loops.

That’s something worth seeing, even travelling to Africa for! If you are going, be there 16-17 June.
