Seriously, don’t. I know most of us don’t have access to a race car, but still this stunt is absolutely crazy.
In the world of jaw-dropping acrobatics and stunts, it’s arguably right to crown Damien Walters the emperor. Case in point: he performed an astonishing backflip over a speeding Formula E (an eco-friendly electric-powered) racing car.
We’ve seen many backflips done over speeding cars before, but this one is unparalleled because Walters is facing forward and can’t see the approaching car. The video shows Walters magically backflipping over the car speeding toward him at 60 mph.
This was one of his most challenging undertakings.
“I’ve done very many crazy things, but this was definitely the worst,” he says.
He’s previously done stunts for Michael Fassbender and Daniel Craig in Assassin’s Creed and Skyfall respectively.
Undoubtedly, Walters is one of those adrenaline junkies who need such acute and prospectively life-ending circumstances to truly feel alive. He’s no different to Levi LaVallee and embodies the slogan; “don’t try this at home.”
