Tiny ‘Tether Car’ Model Racer Reaches 205 MPH in Video

In this astonishing video, a tiny tether car model racer accelerates around a small track until it reaches a manic 205 MPH. Tether cars, which were developed in America in the 1930s, take their name from a tether than attaches them to a post in the center of the race track (they cannot be remotely controlled). For more info, check out the American Miniature Racing Car Association.
