Lotus F1 team sets world record with epic truck jump
In an effort to “redefine” motorsports, Lotus F1 team did something that pretty much took the whole world by storm. The team got their Renault tractor-trailer to actually jump over a moving Lotus Formula 1 car, setting the record for the longest jump by a truck.
Both vehicles were driven by professionals with experience as stunt drivers in various Bond, Bourne, and Fast and Furious movies. Mike Ryan, a drifter and Pikes Peak racer, designed the stunt and is the wheelman in the truck while Martin Ivanov drove the Formula.
It is said that the truck flew 26.7 meters, landing straight in the Guinness World Record book.
