Guerlain Chicherit tried to best Tanner Foust’s currently standing 332 foot record

Rally driver Guerlain Chicherit, with partners Toyo Tires and Monster Energy, this week attempted to trump Tanner Foust’s current world record for longest car ramp jump. However, as the video shows, the attempt went horribly wrong.

Driving a MINI Countryman rally car outfitted for the test, the team were reaching to achieve a jump distance of 360 feet. After landing, the nose of the car dug into the ramp, starting a series of cartwheels before eventually resting on its side.

Guerlain Chicherit was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and has been chatting on Facebook ever since.

Checherit posted “I have to stay to the hospital for the night just for safety, I’m all ok !!!” shortly after the crash.
