Guerlain Chicherit’s Amazing Car Backflip in Tignes (Video)

This is an amazing viral video in which champion skier and rally driver Guerlain Chicherit performs the world’s first a 360 degree backflip in a Mini Countryman John Cooper Works SUV.

The stuntman performed the flip without the aid of any special ramp or any changes to the track.

The jump happened this weekend at the French ski resort of Tignes in the Alps.

The driver said in an interview, “Before the jump it was crazy. I was alone in the car before the start and I just had to do it, everything was ready. I had to arrive at 60kph [37mph] and be full throttle in the kicker to get the right rotation. In the jump, I knew the balance of the car was good and it took me maybe 20 seconds to realise I had landed on my wheels.

Check out the backflip in the video above.
