Video: Mazda2 drives around vertical 'wall of death'

Mark Nichol

A Mazda2 supermini has been driven around a vertical wall of death - the oldest operating one in existence, in fact - in one of the most awesome official publicity stunt videos ever made.

Called the Demon Drone, the wall was built in 1927 in the US and shipped to the UK, during an era when the sight of a motorcycle circling a vertical surface was about the most exciting thing in the whole world. That was before planking and Google+, obviously.
