images inédites et impressionnantes du crash de Guerlain Chicherit lors de sa tentative de record du monde de saut en longueur en voiture.

"When I woke up the morning of jump day, I called my wife and told her that I had a bad feeling. I've traveled and seen hundreds of crashes - multiple car pile ups at high speeds, race cars rolling end-over-end, sometimes on fire"

James Kirkam, the 4 Wheel Motor Sport Creative Team Leader for GoPro Original Productions, wrote his experience" of the scene that day.

Professional skier and rally driver Guerlain Chicherit attempted to beat the world record for longest ramp car jump. The result was not he had hoped for (min:sec that starts the teaser video), and the video that came from is was not just a crash video.

"The life of a professional stunt athlete is rarely without consequences," James explain. "We see them fall, crash, get hurt and, yes, sometimes they die. But what we captured inside of Guerlain's car was very different than a crash video -- it was a deeply ethereal, intimate human experience. We captured that moment - A look on a man's face and a light in his eyes when he realizes, "this is it. I am going to die". Three or four seconds that seem like a minute, without time. Where I expected to see fear, panic, contortion, and pain, Guerlain shows us a deep existential calm."

It was a cord of one man confronting his own morality, and ultimately experiencing a moment of what we can only describe as grace.
