Last year rally and stunt driver Guerlain Chicherit was the first person to back-flip a car unassisted. He used a Mini tuned and specially set up by John Cooper Works. Here’s how it looked.
He’s just tried – and spectacularly failed – to break the car long jump record. His Mini touched the landing ramp nose-first and tumbled and rolled a long way, but amazingly he emerged with only bruises. I guess they built a pretty strong protective framework into that car!
Glad he’s OK – and I’m sure he’ll try again soon.
