For sheer automotive madness you will not be able to beat this year's Car Jumping Championship held in West Sussex, England on Sunday (December 30). The brave banger car drivers accelerated their cars over a ramp in an attempt to fly over a line of ten old wrecked cars and land safely on the opposite side. Needless to say, those that fall from the sky got the biggest round of applause in this car jumping championship. Hundreds of spectators braved the festive entertainment despite the chilly weather. A total of 10 cars battled it out for the championship. All were casualties of banger racing with varying degrees of knocks and dents. Each attempt was judged on elevation, the applause of the crowd and most importantly distance; as only a few made the jump across all ten cars.
