Red Bull invited Tom Cruise to take a turn behind the wheel of a 200-mile per hour Red Bull Racing F1 car at Willow Springs race track in Southern California recently, so the 'Days of Thunder' star took a break from post-production work on the latest 'Mission: Impossible' film to test his racing skills in the real world.

And he didn't do too badly at all.

After his impressive turn behind the wheel, the action hero jumped into the Red Bull aerobatic helicopter with ace pilot Chuck Aaron for a few more thrills. The Red Bull Racing F1 car has been appearing in the U.S. recently to mark the stateside return of Formula 1 racing in 2012 at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas.
