Watch This Guy Do A Backflip Over A Formula E Car. Yes, It’s Real.

File this under: biggest bonehead ideas every conceived. Why anyone would want to do this is beyond me, but hey to each their own right?


Freerunner, gymnast, and Hollywood stuntman Damien Walters is insane. But in the coolest sense of that word. For example, he wanted to do a backflip over a Formula E racer. Of course this takes an INSANE amount of skill, athleticism, and timing, but it’s something we’d never try to do. Then again, Walters does this for a living so this is nearly second nature for him.

Watch below and check out how many attempts it take him to get it right. This is easily one of the most nerve wracking things I’ve seen in a while.

Pretty nuts, but that’s one hell of a video.
