Mineshaft rally crash one of the biggest
- 6th June 2007, 12:00pm
Yet for all that, there are drivers who chose to push the boundaries when arriving at the top. One of these was Peter Jerie who launched his Galant VR4 off the top at something like 110km/h on the second day, instantly establishing a place in the record books for the biggest leap of faith, the high jump record, and perhaps the greatest amount of damage caused.
Words cannot do the jump justice to his feat, but suffice it to say that Jerie and first-time co-driver, 15 year old Tristan Kent, were lucky to walk away uninjured.
Anyone who ignores the severity of the Mineshaft in the future will have to try awfully hard to better Jerie’s leap.
