Hold onto your Santa hats — Chris Hemsworth is earning his racing stripes again.

The “Rush” star swapped his Formula 1 racer for a scooter when he joined Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” Thursday.

Hemsworth and Fallon got in the festive spirit, riding one-of-a-kind sleigh scooters with ridiculous Santa hat helmets, because “any opportunity to make a Hemsworth brother look less attractive, I will take,” explained the late-night host.

The pair raced around the studio on their miniature machines, flying past Father Christmas, dodging playful elves and even braving a scary encounter with the “Ghost of Chris Hemsworth Past” before ploughing through a bitter blizzard.

Fallon got a lucky break when the “In the Heart of the Sea” actor took a wrong turn and got stuck down a corridor, allowing Jimmy to win the coveted Hemsworth Cup.

“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” airs weeknights at 11.35 p.m. on NBC.
