Top Gear Live Sets a New World Record on Deadly 720, This Time on Two Wheels

Back in June, Top Gear Live Stunt Team set a new world record by becoming the first to complete a spectacular double loop-the-loop on four wheels in front of 15,000+ live audience at the Moses Mabhida Stadium, Durban, South Africa.

Now just couple of month’s later Top Gear Live Stunt Team has established another remarkable World Record by completing the first double loop-the-loop on a motorbike. The stunt was performed by rider Gary Hoptrough, who successfully tackled the double loop on a KTM dirt bike at Birmingham’s NEC this past weekend.

“I can’t believe we’ve actually cracked here at NEC in front of a live audience after so many issues in the build-up to the show,” said the relieved Top Gear Live Creative Director Rowland French. “Having now done the Deadly 720 on four and two wheels I have no idea what we’ll dream up next – but you can trust us to come up with something even more astonishing.”

Clarkson was equally amazed. He said: “We started Top Gear in its current incarnation ten years ago as a pokey little motoring show and never dreamt of setting World Records. To be fair, all James, Richard and I did was to stand on stage and introduce a stunt man mad enough to want to turn him self upside twice on a bike. But it was pretty nerve wracking and spectacular!”
