Watch: World Record Car Jump Attempt Goes Horribly Wrong

By

Guerlain Chicherit, a French rally driver and four time freeride world champion, was attempting the longest car jump world record when the stunt went spectacularly wrong. His adapted Mini nosedived sharply on landing, resulting in the car flipping over and cartwheeling at speed down a ramp. Chicherit walked away from the crash in Tignes, France, on Tuesday, with just minor injuries and later posted a message on his Facebook page quoting former British prime minister Winston Churchill.

‘Cheers everybody!!! Thanks a lot for all your support!!! I have to stay to the hospital for the night just for safety, I’m all OK!!!’ he wrote.

He added: ‘Success is not final, failure isn’t fatal: it’s the courage to continue that counts.’
