Top Gear USA presenter Tanner Faust smashes the world record car jump at Indianapolis 500 centenary race

Hot Wheels world record jump

Remember Hot Wheels when you were a kid? Spectators at this year’s Indianapolis 500 were treated to a full-sized Hot Wheels spectacle as brave American bloke Tanner Foust (a racing driver, stunt extraordinaire and US Top Gear presenter, incidentally) jumped to world record glory with a staggering 332ft leap in his purpose-built Hot Wheels machine.  Before beating the previous four-wheel jump record by a full 31ft, Tanner built up the required speed by launching himself down a near-vertical ramp supported by a 10-story high door. Despite overshooting the landing ramp, the fearless stunt driver managed a textbook landing much to the crowd’s delight.
