Mads Østberg Sets New Record For Longest Jump On Snow Using Fiesta Rally Car: Video

Follow Viknesh

Norwegian rally driver Mads Østberg has entered the record books by completing the longest jump on snow, smashing his previous record set last year.

The 25-year-old piloted a current Ford Fiesta WRC car up a ramp and over a distance of 60.48 meters (198.4 feet) to secure the record.

In the approach to the ramp, Østberg’s Fiesta WRC reached speeds of up to 90 mph.

As the video shows, his co-driver, Jonas Andersson, was also in the car. Fortunately, the duo made it to the other side unharmed.

The stunt occurred at Norway’s largest ski resort located in Trysil.

As noted by World Car Fans, Travis Pastrana still holds the record for the longest jump in a car: an impressive 82 meters (269 feet) that he set behind the wheel of a Subaru rally car back in 2009.
