French rally driver Guerlain Chicherit's goal was to beat Tanner Foust's 2011 record 100 meter jump in a car. But a practice session for the jump did not end well this morning.
France's The Local reports Chicherit was miraculously only slightly injured when his customized Mini rally car slammed into the ramp and rolled over several times.
Officials from Monster Energy said Chicherit was conscious and responsive as he was tended to at the scene and has since been taken for a full medical examination. The newspaper says he is doing well at the moment.
Here's a video of the crash from the stands. You can hear how horrifying this must have been to witness in person.
Glad to hear you seem alright, Guerlain. Better luck next time.
