Small boys all love them: the Hot wheels toys that generations of kids have played with.
Hot Wheels' latest is called the Double Loop track, where two miniature cars race each towards a daring loop.
The toy inspired the big boys from the Hot Wheels team to try it out in the real world. On June 30th, during the Los Angeles X Games, they will see if they can reproduce the Double Loop track in the real world, and break a world record with this daring stunt.
The two drivers will race each other to a vertical loop – 6-storey high –, accelerating over 83 km/h and suffering 7G at the top of the loop; forces comparable to what fight plane pilots experience.
The experiment will be aired on both ABC and ESPN.
