Top Gear has the world record for ‘double loop’ at the festival which was held last weekend at the stadium Moses Mabhida Durban (South Africa). The adventure called ‘Deadly 720′, took place before 15,000 people waiting that the Top Gear team was the first to achieve such feat.
It is not the first time that Top Gear Live Stunt Team embarks on one of these crazy things. This team was already previously performed the first simple loop in an enclosure, and it has now managed to perform for the first time, one double. This used a specially prepared buggy with manual controls that allow blocking the throttle, something essential that, due to the existing G forces, there was a possibility that the driver lost the foot pedal. Says Top Gear on its website, the speed is a prerequisite in the show ‘Deadly 720′.
For this reason, the vehicle boasts a great light on the dashboard that changes to green when you reach the appropriate speed (between 24 and 26 mills/hour) to deal with the double loop. The two drafts have a height of eight meters and include a total length of 58, but the guys from Top Gear have achieved this new world record without problems.
After the record of ‘double loop’ drive, Jeremy Clarkson was very surprised: “we are much more famous by mess up or destroy things like caravans that for breaking world records”. As it unveiled Rowland French, creative director of Top Gear, the team failed three trials record prior to the show. Something that yes achieved in the final and final attempt. The buggy had to reach the 38.62 km/h to successfully overcome the ‘double loop’, something that they succeeded and which gave them this new world record.
