GoPro Jump crash When you’re flying through the air and something goes wrong, the whole situation can unravel very quickly.

We’re a big fan of anything that reminds us of old-school racing and risk taking here at Motorsport Retro, so this World Record Attempt for the longest jump aboard what appears to be some kind of tubular, V8 powered miniature race truck dressed as a Mini, is right up our alley. It reminds us of the days of old, when stuntmen were celebrities, and everyone spoke of the gladiators risking their lives for glory.

Well, pro skier, snowboard champion and rally driver Guerlain Chicherit certainly risked his life with this one. Things didn’t go to plan at all – thankfully he’s OK!
