In this video you guys will see the world record long jump made by the American daredevil Gregg Godfrey in a truck cab. At the end finally receiving all the evidence needed to verify the attempt, we can confirm that Gregg Godfrey absolutely smashed World Record Long Jump.The jump was a staggering 35.21 metres longer than his 2008 try – that’s more than three times the earlier distance of 15.59 m. However, last 24 July, at an Evil Knievel Days event in Butte, Montana, USA, the stunt driver got back inside his semi-truck. A unit typically used to pull large trailers in the long-haul road freight industry, not for jumping. Daredevil Godfrey launched his 45,000 kg truck from a ramp to clear a reported distance of 160 feet – potentially trebling his previous benchmark. he fearless driver took to Twitter to announce that he “meant to only go to 140”, suggesting that the last, potentially record-breaking 20 ft was actually accidental.With very little separating Godfrey’s truck and the huge surrounding crowd, the video shows him slam on the breaks as he lands, narrowly avoiding a crash into a nearby house. Or, is it just perfect parallel parking? Greg Godfrey didn’t just break his previous record,he annihilated it.
The World Record Long Jump he set in 2008 was for a 15.59 meter jump, but in Montana recently, Godfrey reset that record by a stunning 35.21 meters.
In order to complete the jump Godfrey planned to get the nine-ton truck up to 70 miles per hour. Godfrey was originally going to jump his semi over Evel Knievel’s extra-long ‘Red Hauler’ truck, but organizers couldn’t fit the iconic vehicle between the two ramps, the Montana Standard reported. In order to complete the jump Godfrey planned to get the nine-ton truck up to 70 miles per hour, according to KXLF. The younger Godfrey broke a World Record Long Jump of his own when he jumped a utility terrain vehicle 202 feet and Levi Troutman broke his own world record by running through ten burning walls.
