Top Gear Live Stunt Team Completes A World Record Double Loop [VIDEO]

Top Gear Live Stunt Team has 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.

The record breaking stunt featured two giant steel loops positioned just eight metres apart. The specially prepared buggy had to enter each loop at between 24mph and 26mph. Failing to achieve the minimum speed risked the buggy falling out at the top of the loop. Too much speed would have resulted in an extra G of force on the driver and could have caused him to black out.
