With Formula One fever currently gripping the UAE as the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is taking place at the Yas Marina Circuit, EMC technology and the Lotus F1 recently released this insane stunt video involving a semi-truck and an F1 car. In this amazing new video that is making rounds of the internet , a Lotus Formula 1 car jumps over a semi-truck. Wait, that’s not right. The semi-truck is jumping over the Lotus 1 car!
According to Car And Driver reports that Mike Ryan, who drives the semi-truck, and Martin Ivanov, who drives the F1, are both experienced stunt drivers. They’ve performed stunts in various movies, including the Bond, Jason Bourne, and Fast and Furious franchises, but their latest stunt is for this commercial for EMC Enterprise. And it’s apparently a new Guinness World Record for longest truck jump!
The company writes on Youtube: “Why jump a giant semi-truck over a speeding Formula 1 car? If you’re EMC and Lotus F1 Team, it’s a unique way to demonstrate how we “Redefine Motorsports,” bringing the power of EMC technology to the Lotus F1 Team—and setting a world record in the process!”
According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the semi-truck traveled 87 feet and 7 inches during the stunt.
