Stunt driver Tanner Foust sets 332ft jump record

A daredevil stunt driver has set a new world record by jumping his car 332ft in a ramp-to-ramp stunt at the Indianapolis 500.

Tanner Foust took to his car vehicle which he drove down a massive toy-inspired 90ft ramp to build up speed before hitting a jump and taking off.

The 37-year-old then travelled for 332ft before his wheels touched-down on another ramp on the infield of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

We defy you to watch this video and not think about digging out your old toy cars… or just question where your life went wrong and why you'are sat at a computer while other people do this for a living.

"As a kid playing with Hot Wheels I could only dream of experiencing something as outrageous as a life-sized V-Drop track set, and today it became reality," said Tanner Foust.

"There’s a lot that goes into being on Team Hot Wheels and the training and testing leading up to the jump gave me the confidence needed to push the mechanical and mental limits of the challenge and land the world-record title."

In cars you were wondering why the car and ramp looked like toys, it's because it was organised by Team Hot Wheels
