    Stunt Shows

    Following on from a PA Cresta car jump pic i posted on another thread heres some more...
    Did any of yous see these crazy jumps-where you at the track.
    The cars must of had some roll bar to protect the good looking lady.

    There was another similer jump using a Rover SDI and another with a Lada-not sure who was driving them though,i will have to re-read the thread i put on UKDRN.




















    Anybody got any other pics or videos of stunt shows they may of been to over the years-or even any more of the Mustang and Camaro jumps from above.
    One thing it must of been a job of clearing up the track after these stunts.
    Ive seen video of some stunts from the pod off the late late breakfast show but cant seam to find it.I seam to remember a Mk1 escort going over the barrier.


    EDIT...click this link and go down the page for info on the Mustang jump...

    I think the Camaro had a problem when it hit the ramp which is why it went ever so slightly wrong. Apparently a rear shock failed, the tyre hit the top of the arch and stopped turning which threw the car off course. She just missed the lighting pole.

    As for the Jensen jump I believe he was injured quite badly as the car just disintegrated on landing.

    Re: Stunt Shows

    I've got a video of the Rover SD1 stunt some where . I remember it took ages for the crew to cut him out of the car .
    Also remember the guy stood on the control tower steps having to do a quick exit as the car hurtled towards him !
    Will see if I can find the vhs tape it was on ,

    Great links Steve, thanks. Brings back some memories, I remember that Destruction Squad had a stand at a racing car show at Olympia (I think) and I spent a while chatting to them. I bought a poster which they autgraphed, that was on my bedroom wall for some time.

    First video in post 2 at about 55 seconds in, the late Slammin' Sammy Miller looking at the marks in the track.
    How'd the weekend go? Well, at the moment it looks like a dolphin that's been caught in a boats propeller.
