French stunt driver Guerlain Chicherit’s bid to beat Tanner Faust’s World Record for the longest ramp jump in a four wheeled conveyance came to an end yesterday as the driver suffered a massive crash in practice yesterday. The former competitive skier and rally car driver has been prepping to beat Faust’s standing record of 332 feet and has been hoping to smash the record by 30 feet more. Unfortunately, the only thing he managed to smash yesterday was his heavily modified MINI.
The Monster Energy and Toyo Tires sponsored car caught spectacular air off the jump, but the car dropped its nose just before landing causing the little jumper to do at least 6 or 7 endos before coming to rest.
According to his Facebook page, Chicherit is fine thanks to the safety equipment on board.
“Guerlain is doing good and has already reviewed video footage of the jump to see what went wrong. He got out of the car himself, slightly injured and will now get a precautionary MRI to check that everything is fine. Further updates to follow once information is released.”
