Last-week on 30th June, Team Hot Wheels set a Guinness World Record title for successfully racing though a 60-foot-tall double vertical loop at X Games Los Angeles 2012.
Green Driver Greg Tracy, one of Hollywood’s top stuntmen, took first place followed by Hot Wheels Yellow Team Driver Tanner Foust as the two raced through the giant up-side-down loop.
“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.”’ (See the video below the jump)
