The Well of Death, India

The well of death is a popular event in India often displayed during large festivals throughout the year. Held in a makeshift cylindrical structure, around 30ft in diameter, cars and motorcycles are driven around the walls at great speed. The drivers perform stunts whilst driving along the vertical walls and collect money from the audience as they go past. The audience are positioned along the top of the walls of the structure. From there they can gaze down at the riders.
