Recently, thirty-four year-old extreme sportsman Guerlain Chicherit became the first person to ever complete an unassisted backflip in a car. At a ski resort in Tignes, France—previously known for hosting the 1992 Winter Olympics—Chicherit drove a modified MINI Cooper up a 26-foot static ramp. After completing the flip, the Cooper landed on all fours in the snow and secured MINI’s and Chicherit’s place in the Guinness Book of World Records. Though drivers have undoubtedly completed backflips in cars before, Chicherit’s was the first to do so without the use of a propelling ramp. Watch it happen in the above video.

A number of automotive publications are reporting this morning that BMW is recalling approximately 30,000 X5 SUVs. The SUVs, which are from the 2007-2010 model years, were supposedly affixed with faulty brake vacuum pumps. BMW says the pumps may malfunction and leak fluid onto the SUV’s brake hose. If this occurs, the SUV’s power-assisted braking could fail and therefore the distance required for the vehicle to stop will increase. The German automaker fears this may amplify the risk of a crash, and as a result—passenger injury.
