F1 drives under a truck - level 2

F1 drives under a truck - level 2

27-11-2014 07:00

The video of a dangerous stunt became very popular on the Internet. A truck and a Formula One car went fast alongside each other, and then the truck drove onto a ramp and jumped.

As the truck was in the air, the F1 drove under it. The truck jumped 83 feet (25 metres), and the F1 car only had seconds to do the trick.

People created the stunt as an advert. One of the men worked on famous movies, like the Fast and Furious and Terminator 2.

Difficult words: stunt (a cool but dangerous action), ramp (a piece of metal that helps cars drive up something), advert (a short film about something you can buy).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
