Stunt driver sets record for four-wheel vehicle jump

Stunt driver Tanner Foust has set a new world record for jumping a four-wheel drive vehicle, after launching his Pro 2 truck a distance of 332 feet.

The jump broke former record holder Johnny Greaves' mark of 301 feet.

Speaking after completing the challenge, which was organised by Hot Wheels, Foust said: "You're basically going down a really poorly designed rollercoaster, because there are no guard rails... We accounted for everything you could imagine outside of the weather."
