This is the pretty impressive moment Freestyle rally driver, Guerlain Chicherit, made the first ever successful unassisted backflip in a mini.

Using a specially modified Mini Countryman, Chicherit launched himself off a ramp in the French ski resort of Tignes on Sunday.

Previous attempts at the stunt have used specially modified ramps to help flip the car.

Mini said all Chicherit used this time was "a gas pedal and a prayer".
