Fifth Gear Stunt Special
Five's motoring magazine show returns for an action-packed one-off special. Stuntman Steve Truglia prepares to perform a toy-car trick in a life-size vehicle. He will attempt to defy gravity and neck-breaking G-forces to loop-the-loop.
Along the way, he calls on the help of a daredevil aerobatics pilot and an expert in mechanical engineering. Can Steve pull off this most remarkable feat?
For a car-crazed kid, there is nothing more exciting than defeating the laws of physics from the safety of the kitchen floor - by making a favourite toy car loop-the-loop around a Hot Wheels track. Now, 'Fifth Gear' is going to do the trick for real. A real car and a real driver will perform the feat on a scale that will make this one of the best car stunts ever - and hopefully set a new world record.
Steve Truglia is the man tasked with trying to drive a car upside down. Steve is an ex-Special Forces soldier-turned-stuntman who has appeared in James Bond films and is currently planning a mindbogglingly dangerous skydive from space.
This stirring 'Fifth Gear' special follows Steve every step of the way to see how he prepares for this extraordinary stunt. He seeks advice from Finnish female stunt riders, a daredevil aerobatics pilot and a Cambridge University doctor of mechanical engineering, while training to withstand the incredible G-forces he will experience while driving in the loop.
Steve needs to hit the launch ramp at the perfect speed. If he is too slow, he will drop out of the sky as soon as he is upside down. If he is too quick, he will experience enough G-force to make him blackout. Steve has never failed to complete a stunt yet - but will he succeed this time?.
