Stunt drivers Tanner Foust and Greg Tracy will race through a 60-foot vertical loop based on the new Hot Wheels Double Dare Snare toy. It will be the first time in history that two cars mount a vertical loop at once.
The “Hot Wheels Double Loop Dare” is set to take place at this month’s Summer X-Games in Los Angeles on June 30.
“We’ve done large-scale stuff before,” said Dave McKay from Laissez Faire, the company that designed and created the track. “But this is the biggest stunt that I’ve ever been apart of.”
The “Hot Wheels Double Loop Dare” is a combination of a race and a stunt. Drivers race the cars at 52 mph down separate tracks that merge into one giant loop. They’ll pull 7 G’s (just like a fighter pilot), before they shoot out on the other side. The first car through wins.
Foust is a pro Rally and Drift driver. He won three X-Games Gold Medals and two Formula Drift championships. He also broke the world record for the largest leap by a four-wheeled vehicle.
Tracy is a professional stunt driver featured in both movies and television, and is a six-time Pikes Peak Champion — an extreme racing event.
Preparation has been underway since last fall. Former NASA scientists, roller coaster engineers and stuntmen came together to create the life-sized track.
The track is 700-feet long and weighs 125 tons.
