Longest car jump in the snow: Mads Ostberg sets world record (Video)
TRYSIL, Norway--Norwegian WRC racing driver Mads Østberg took his WRC Ford Fiesta and jumped 50 meters (164 feet) through the air
- setting the new world record for the Longest car jump in the snow, according to World Record Academy: www.worldrecordacademy.com/.
The Guinness world record for the most people rolling tyres simultaneously is 299 and was achieved by the Merredin and Districts Agricultural Society (Australia) in Merredin, Western Australia, Australia.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the most cars washed in eight hours at multiple venues: 4,918 - achieved by CARSTAR Auto Body Repair Experts during the Soaps It Up! National Car Wash Fundraiser event coordinated by Victory Management Group (USA).
Setting a new bar for himself, and the world, Østberg completed a world record snow jump at the "DC All in Trysil" event, a winter extreme sports festival held last weekend at Trysil, Norway, sponsored by DC Shoes.
"That was the craziest thing I've done," said the 24-year-old after completing the challenge.
Østberg took three attempts, leaping off a snowy ramp in his WRC Ford Fiesta, the first of which saw him barely clear the landing ramp. His second jump was cleaner but not quite record-worthy. Finally on the third try he cleared 50 meters (164 feet).
