May the downforce (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Downforce) be with him.

any idea how fast that bus is going?At least 50 miles per hour, or it would blow up...

(sorry, thread title made me do it)

It's not downforce that let's it do that. It's centripetal acceleration.

Yeah, downforce works for things like F-1s that are designed for that kind of shit, but a bus is all about the centripetal acceleration.

And if you want to calculate how fast it's going you can do that from the angle it's at with the ground and how big the circle it's going in is.

This is the Mercedes test track. If I had to venture a guess, the Bus has to be going about 110~.

Or the camera is tilted.

Or the camera is tilted.

Yes, becuase perfectly normal, horizontal roads are curved inwards. You know, to encourage pile ups and stuff. ;)

Oh, it's certainly a banked curve at a track somewhere, but look at the trees and guard rails. The camera is tilted to make the angle seem more extreme.
