Semi truck jumps over Lotus F1 and sets world record, While waiting approval from the Guinness World Record team, it’s said to have cleared 83 feet and 7 inches.
An oft-quoted factoid in motorsport circles is that a Formula One racer can drive upside down in a tunnel.
A never-quoted factoid is that you can jump a Formula One transporter over a Formula One racer.
Enter stuntmen Mike Ryan and Martin Ivanov who went out and did just that, and set a world record in the process.
Martin – whose credentials as a stuntman include work on the James Bond movies – slides the Lotus F1 racer underneath the team’s semi-trailer.
The truck – with The Fast and the Furious alumni Mike behind the wheel – sails majestically through the air before landing a world record-setting 83 feet 7 inches away from where it took off.
Whether or not you can drive a Formula One transporter on the roof of a tunnel remains to be seen.
