Using centrifugal force - or counter-centripetal to physicists - the cars and motorbikes are able to circle a 30ft vertical wall at high speed. Gravity death defying act you can see in India.

Traditionally the 'cylinder' in which the vehicles perform is made from wood, allowing for cheap repair but also making the feat that more dangerous due to the rickety nature of the track.

Huge crowds pack the top of the 'wall' to watch as performers climb out of car windows or take their hands off motorbike handlebars. Only in India.
