I love you, Japan.

If they had a ramp that could handle it, that bulldozer tire would have flown to the fucking moon.

That last one was awesome. NOTHING CAN STOP TIRE!
Apparently F1 cars are fast, but are no good for jumping.
I think F-1 tires are just too light to build enough speed to get big air on their own. However, I would love to see someone willing to sacrifice their lives and the mill or so the car costs to show us how far they could leap. You'd have to get the angle right, or they would just flip like the Mercedes at the 99 Le Mans, but if calculated correctly, I'm pretty sure they would glide like 30 or 40 miles.
I have the feeling there are some people so bored with their lives that they'd be happy to give it a try. Just for the hell of it.

Sign me up.
No seriously, if the eggheads figure out the trajectories and weight balances and all the complex engineering and mathmatical know-how to get an F-1 car with a nearly empty fuel tank to theoretically ramp-jump and land wheels down about three and a half football fields down range, and all the numbers were quadruple-checked by independent eggheads, I would buckle myself into that five point harness, strap on a pair of old fashioned driving goggles, take a look at that 250M long take off ramp, and grin.
Well, maybe not so seriously. I'm crazy, not stupid. If I was stupid, I'd be talking about doing it in a dragster.

That last tire was funny! It was well worth the wait.

I think bulldozer tire should be disqualified. I'm pretty sure that's a violation of some sport somewhere.

I enjoyed this video.
I love how the guy wears a lab coat and white gloves. Rolling tires down a ski jump is very scientific work!
Japan has a whole science team dedicated to fucking around and being awesome, basically.

Sometimes, Japan, I love you. Also, that last tire was the most hardcore tire I've ever SEEN. It's a vulcanized rubber juggernaut.

Also, for some reason, those wooden barricades have little painted pictures of people on them. Look closely.
Japan, you're wierd, but that's cool, it's a mostly harmless wierd.
The Rape Tire, she has no breaks.
Must make a better ramp.
