Car Jumps and Rolls – level 2

13-06-2019 15:00

A stunt driver carried out a 15.37-metre-long jump and a 270-degree roll. He received his 21st Guinness World Record title for this.

He had to precisely calculate and test the jump many times before. The run-up needed to be 160 metres long for the car to hit the air at the precise speed. The stunt driver experienced a G-force of 5.5 during the car’s corkscrew twist. The car he jumped in was a Jaguar E-PACE.

Difficult words: stunt driver (a driver who does dangerous tricks), precisely (exactly), G-force (a speed that is so fast that gravity is very strong against it), corkscrew twist (a sideways roll).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
