It’s another world record for the Top Gear Live Stunt Team. Just a few months after the same dare-devil team completed the ‘Deadly 720′ loop-the-loop in a four-wheeled buggy in South Africa — we got to thinking: could we perform the same feat if we removed 50 per cent of wheels as well as the roof and the steering wheel? In other words, on a motorbike. The answer would appear to be a resounding ‘yes’.
This is the final edit of, as Clarkson says: “a stunt man mad enough to want to turn himself upside down twice on a bike”. Adding: “Pretty nerve wracking and spectacular”.
“I can’t believe we’ve actually cracked it here at the NEC in front of a live audience,” said a relieved and delighted Top Gear Live Creative Director, Rowland French. “Having now done the Deadly 720 on four and two wheels I have no idea what we’ll dream up next — but you can trust us to come up with something even more astonishing.”
