Frenchman Guerlain Chicherit’s attempt to break the world record for the longest car jump has ended after his modified Mini pitched forward as it hit the landing ramp.

He was planning to jump 100 metres to break the record of the American Tanner Foust set in 2011.

The accident happened during a practice session in Tignes Val Claret in the French Alps.

Remarkably the driver suffered only minor injuries.
