Here is another qualifying pass from No Problem Raceway 6.70 @ 206 mph!
Keep in mind, the air conditions were not favorable on this day. What
you're looking at is a 509 c.i. half-filled aluminum block with Brodix Big
Duke heads, and a Kobelco 10-71 Hi-Helix strapped on top. This combo is
making roughly 20 lbs of Boost, and
approximately 1500 hp.

- Yes, it's James May, aka, Captain Slow of Top Gear fame.
- No, this isn't from an episode of Top Gear. This was from a TV special
called "James May On The Moon", which was made to celebrate the 40th
Anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landings. James May has made several series
that are completely unrelated to Top Gear.
- The music is called "Flight" performed by Ty Unwin especially for this
I'm sad to say that it is not currently available on its own.
- The chase cars on take off and landing are a standard part of U-2
operations. They are there to assist the pilot, especially on landing.
A combination of fragile and unstable rear landing gear, the aircrafts
reluctance to descend and a high approach attitude that gives the pilot
poor visibility of the ground has made the U-2 very difficult to land and
so another U-2 pilot follows behind in the chase car to quite literally
talk them down for the last few feet.

Surely the most amazing and humbling views to be seen by any human on a
regular basis. The view from a U-2 cruising at 70,000ft as the sky above
turns black and the curvature of the Earth is visible.

The only people to have gone gone higher on any sort of regular, day-to-day
basis were SR-71 pilots.
Emphasis on the day-to-day part.
Astronauts have, of course, gone higher still, but their missions are few

Same goes for special one-off record setting flights such as those by the

NHRA Drag Racing - Drag Racing Jet car outtakes
Jet car outtakes, June 2003, Race City in Calgary. This is about as close
as you'll ever get to a jet car, more than few unique angles. Jett Force,
Brad Janishewski's Rollin' Thunder are featured
The Rollin' Thunder Jet Car is a custom moulded Honda Civic complete with
ground effects. It features a Westinghouse-built J34 jet engine from an old
US Navy F2 McDonnell Douglas fighter jet, capable of burning 30 litres of
fuel in six seconds, generating 6,000 horsepower and 12,000 lbs of
thrust at speeds of 250 miles per hour!

When things go wrong
This is my first attempt in this type of video so all the helpful advices
are welcome. It's a mix of speed (mostly stunt) and motocross crashes. I
tried not to collect videos from here (it could be a bit boring if you've
already seen them separately), so they are from other sources. And by the
way, this is my first widescreen YouTube video, don't forget to watch it in
high quality if you can! =)
