5 Insanely crazy car jumps: Car stunts on another level

Phillip Roberts 9. March 2015 Entertainment, Magazine, Videos & Movie Reviews 1 Comment

1. Guerlain Chicherit’s Longest Car Jump Attempt

This must surely be the most scary video of all crazy car jumps. A French skier and rally driver Guerlain Chicherit attempted to beat the world record of the longest car jump back in 2014, with an incredible 360 ft. distance in a modified Mini Countryman. However not all went as expected and the car nosedived, fortunately, on the landing ramp. He made the jump but the landing was rough. The video shows the horror in his face when he realised that it would not end well.

2. Hotwheels Real Car Loop

Although the jump in this video was not as big as Guerlain’s it is interesting to see that you can actually do a looping backflip in a real car that weighs much more that a miniature Matchbox Toy. This video is an out-take from the X Games Los Angeles 2012.

3. Monster Mini Backflip

Yet again the mighty Guerlain Chicherit and his crazy Mini. This time the insanity lies in a backflip jump from a ramp to a snow tower. The ultimate goal was to land the car on all four wheels instead of it’s bonnet. Did he make it this time?

4. Tanner Foust The World Record Holder for a Car Jump

When Chicherit attempted to break the record he was actually aiming for Tanner Foust’s car jump record. As you would expect from Hotwheels, the straight was not snow but an orange track leading to airborne motoring.

5. Forest Rally Insanity

Although this is technically not a car there are more jumps and extreme forest rallying than the majority of us could handle. Just imagine the little car having a passenger seat with you in it. Are you feeling scared? I bet even RJ Anderson driving the little four-wheeler was scared to the point of butt-clenching.

If you know of any other crazy car jumps don’t hesitate to post them below in comments.

About Phillip Roberts

As a little boy my Dad always told me stories about the glorious days of automotive pioneering and days when classics were common. This has influenced me in such an effect I have become a helpless petrol-head...

View All Posts

…my driving license was still on it's way when I had bought my first petrol-smelling Italian stallion... No, it wasn't a Ferrari... It was Fiat Regata, twin choke Weber 1.5 in neat condition with bad attitude. It wasn't in any way quick by today's standards nor was it a good handler. More like an SUV actually. It was so high that my girlfriend at the time, (a little taller than a bucket,) almost needed a ladder to get into it. However, it was a good car till the first winter came and I wrecked it.

My next car was a BMW E30 1987 2.4d. It is still my all-time favorite. It just had a black metallic paint job done when I bought it and shiny chrome bumpers. As Steel Panther would say say, "that car was bitchin'." I had nice Alpina alloys that I kept getting nicked for. Apparently they were not marked in my documents so each time the police caught me I got a fine.

After about a dozen fines in 3 months I said `sod it` and had BMW amend my documents. This one wasn't really quick off the mark but once it was up to speed you could throw it into any corner and it would come out still alive and pointing the right way. I sold it eventually because I didn't have the time to get it back to original condition and I later found out that the guy I sold it to wrecked it couple of months after. What a shame.

I also had a BMW E46. I liked the look of it but it was useless. It had so many problems one day I wished someone would run into me so I could get rid of it and get some money back. Guess what... a week later a Spanish fellow in a borrowed company Skoda ran up the boot and parked on my back seat. My girlfriend got a panic attack and became so furious she would have beaten him up if I`d let her. However, I had successfully gotten rid of the car.

So this is the story of my beginnings. There are two things that I love other than music and my family. Writing and cars. Why not combine them? I figured there may be more people like me and so I wanted to participate in this amazing opportunity for everyone to share their knowledge, experience and passion, and build something unique while doing it.
