Car jumping - level 1

Car jumping - level 1

08-01-2014 14:00

There is a competition in England. It is very special. It is also not safe.

People are driving cars. They must go fast. They drive over a ramp and jump. They must jump over 18 old cars. If you can jump high, it is better. You must also land safely. It is not easy. Most people cannot do it, but one man can do it.

He doesn’t win any money, but he is happy. He can tell his friends about it.

Difficult words: competition (situation when you try to be better than other people), ramp (small hill which helps you go up), land (get back on the ground).

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