Back in 2011, rallycross driver and Top Gear U.S. host Tanner Foust broke the world record for the longest jump in a four-wheeled vehicle soaring 101 metres at the Indianapolis. With that record likely to stand for quite a few more years to come, another daredevil named Rob Dydrek has just set a new world record for the farthest reverse ramp jump by a car according to the Guinness Book of World Records.
The full video will be released when the finale of Dyrek’s show on MTV, Fantasy Factory airs on March 13th. However, this short 12 second clip does include the entire jump which soar Dydrek fly in a small Chevrolet Sonic an impressive 27.2 metres!
When discussing the jump, Dydrek said, “The Sonic is a great car for firsts. I have always been a Chevy guy, so when we decided we wanted to set a Guinness World Record for the finale of “Fantasy Factory,” using the Sonic again just made sense.”
