Car jumping competition – level 1

Car jumping competition – level 1

09-05-2016 15:00

There is a competition in England. Ten drivers take part in it. They must go fast and jump over eight old cars.

This is dangerous. People can be injured. Doctors are at the competition to help.

A window cleaner wins the competition. He drives an old Ford Mondeo. He wins 50 pounds. He also wins respect from the other competitors. He probably also wins some beer from his friends.

Difficult words: competition (an event when you do your best to win), take part (to do something, to be a competitor), competitor (a person who takes part in a competition).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
