The Lotus F1 Team Jumped A Semi-Truck Over One Of Their Race Cars

If Evel Knievel had ever traded in his hog for a giant semi-truck -- or a Formula One racer -- he would have likely attempted something like this.

This is a video of a semi-truck jumping an F1 racer, setting a Guinness World-Record for longest jump length (83 feet, 7 inches) in the process.

Why? According to the Lotus F1 Team and EMC, the groups behind the stunt, it's how they stay true to their goal of "redefining motorsports."

Car and Driver reports the semi-truck driver is Mike Ryan, the same man who once drifted a semi up Pikes Peak, and the F1 Racer was piloted by Martin Ivanov.
