Rally - Flipping French!
Former French rally champion, Dakar competitor, and extreme sportsman, Guerlain Chicherit has performed the first successful backflip in a car.
The backflip had previously been attempted by other drivers, but Chicherit has not only become the first automotively-propelled eedjit to execute a perfect landing, he also did it ‘unassisted’. That is, without the aid of a special ramp with moving elements to boost the car’s rotational movement.
He used a static ramp similar to a quarterpipe on a freestyle course, and if you do watch the video – turn the sound up!
