A car does a back flip on a mountain of snow

Here’s something that you definitely won’t want to try at home.

French daredevil Guerlain Chicherit, 34, spent four years training for the stunt that he performed without an audience for the first time in case anything went wrong. Using his specially-built Mini Countryman, the stunt driver then did it again last night in front of a roaring crowd at Tignes in the French Alps.
This is the heart-stopping moment a champion rally driver became the first person to perform a 360-degree backflip in a car.

French daredevil Guerlain Chicherit, 34, sped towards a 25ft high ramp in his specially built Mini Countryman at an exact 37mph.

He then hit the quarter-pipe and took off, soaring 75ft into the air and flipping his car a full 360 degrees backwards.
The professional stunt driver then landed rear wheels first on other side of the specially-made snow ramp the French ski resort of Tignes, in the Alps.
