Top Gear Live To Attempt ‘Deadly 720' Double Loop This Weekend In South Africa

Top Gear Live Stunt Team will attempt to set a new world record by becoming the first to successfully complete a double loop the loop stunt this coming weekend at the Top Gear Festival in the Moses Mabhida Stadium, Durban, South Africa.

Called the ‘Deadly 720′, the stunt has two loops, each 8 metres tall and comprise of 8 tons of steelwork. If you uncurled both loops, the total length of track would be 58 metres.

Specially prepared buggy must enter each loop between 24 and 26mph to successfully complete the stunt. Failing to achieve the minimum 24mph risks the buggy falling out at the top of the loop. An increase of speed from 26mph will result in an extra G of force on the driver and could cause him to black out.

We’ll have the video up soon after the stunt is performed. Hopefully successfully!
