X Games: Hot Wheels Double Loop Dare stunt [Video]July 2, 2012 by: Rituraj Mishra
A nippy and exciting Guinness World Record after a long time. Hot Wheels team mates Tanner Foust and Greg Tracy performed through a 60-foot-tall double vertical loop at X Games Los Angeles 2012. The Double Loop Dare, which is a life-size version of a Hot Wheels orange track set rode right into the face of gravity with two drivers doing it at the same time.
They reached a stunning speed of 52 miles per hour and in the process pulled 7G’s. Although Greg Tracy won it by edging Froust, it was nothing that mattered, as everyone were stunned to see the stunt being done.
“Boys of all ages around the world imagine playing with Hot Wheels on a life-size scale – and our vision with Team Hot Wheels was to transform this fantasy into reality,” said Simon Waldron, vice president marketing, wheels, Mattel. “The Double Loop Dare was truly a can’t-miss spectacle that altered the Los Angeles skyline. Anyone downtown couldn’t miss this massive six-story-tall bright orange structure – it was unmistakably Hot Wheels.”
I wish I was there.
