Just another day of life – in the fast lane – for Mission Impossible star Tom Cruise!
The Hollywood hunk, who played a racecar driver in the 1990 film Days of Thunder, recently took some time out of his busy schedule to take a spin in a Red Bull F1 car at Willow Spring race track in California – and RadarOnline.com has the exciting video.
Cruise seemed to have no fear about hopping behind the wheel of the Formula One racecar, getting lessons from 13-time Grand Prix winner, David Coulthard.
The actor, who at one point loses control of the car and drives it off track, reached a top speed of 181 mph – just 4 mph off the top speed of his professional instructor!
Apparently the excitement of driving a fast car wasn’t enough for the Top Gun star. After his loop around the track he hopped into the cockpit of a helicopter with ace pilot Chuck Aaron and the two engaged in some aerobatic activity!
