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 fitted with Dunlop SP30's. He will attempt to defy gravity and neck-breaking G-forces to loop-the-loop.
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? Will his Dunlop SP30's keep him on the track, even when he's upside down?
