Frenchman backflips MINI yet again: Photos & Video
34 year old Frenchman, Guerlain Chicherit has done it again. He has performed yet another dare devil stunt with the MINI. This time, he has taken a MINI ALL4 to the winter sports resort of Tignes where he performed the stunt using a static ramp. The result was the MINI flipped, went into the air and landed back intact on its four wheels on a soft snowy surface.
The stunt will get Chicherit into the Guinness Book of World Records. The 34 year old is also a four time world freestyle skiing champion. He has won the French Rally Championships twice and is also on the X Raid Team which led MINI ALL4 to consecutive wins in the 2012 and 2012 Dakar Rally.Â MINI stated: “The backflip had previously been attempted by other drivers. But Chicherit has now become not only the first automotively-propelled artist to execute a perfect landing, he also did it â€śunassistedâ€ť â€“ in other words, without the aid of a special ramp with moving elements to boost the carâ€™s rotational movement.”
Guerlain had performed an unassisted backflip in the MINI earlier. You can watch him performing his stunts in the MINI in the videos below.
