On saturday march 19th, Matt Macduff sustained a terrible fall attempting to make his way around the Loop Of Doom. After over 3 year of research, determination and hard work, Matt managed to find everything he needed to make his project happen.
Built in a month at the Garden Route Trail Park in South Africa, the gigantic structure rises up to 40 ft. in the sky. The crash left him with 10 fractures in his right wrist and 3 fractures in his right ankle. The story behind his stunt is as impactful as the structure itself. A real story of determination.

This is very simple: we have three great sports cars from three great car-making countries. And we want to know which is fastest in a quarter-mile drag race.
From the USA, we have the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. From Germany, we have the Porsche 911 Turbo S. And from Japan, we have the car that has so far out-dragged everything we’ve put it up against, the Nissan GT-R.
This time, though, the GT-R might have met its match. After all, the 911 Turbo S is four-wheel drive and rear engined. The Hellcat is neither of those … but it does have 707bhp.
