FRANKFURT — British stunt driver Terry Grant raced into the record books in Jaguar's new F-PACE sports vehicle after performing the largest loop the loop in a car at Germany's Niederrad Racecourse on Monday.

After two months of preparation to make sure his body was ready to withstand the severe G-Force, Grant completed the 62 feet tall, 360 degree circle, according to Guinness World Records.

Grant said making sure he hit the correct speed — of about 55 mph —was critical to complete the loop.
