It seems like yesterday that Travis Pastrana was lighting the world on fire doing the first back flip on a motocross motorcycle. He later did a double back flip. Apparently MINI, with the help of french crazy person stunt driver Guerlain Chicherit are attempting the world’s first unassisted back flip in a car. That car, by the way, is what appears to be a custom built MINI Countryman made just for the task. Video after the jump.

Not quite the ending I was hoping for. Not really an ending at all, actually. Will he land it? What goes up must come down, but will it still be shiny side up once Mr. Chicherit has paid the toll at the physics booth? I guess we’ll have to stay tuned.
