Barry's Huge Jump At 140mph On Jim Clark Rally: Viral Video

On the Leithom stage of the Jim Clark Rally UK, Barry Johnson did something amazing to create one of the longest rally jump video. He jumped his Subaru Impreza at around 140mph(220kph) over a distance of about 60 feet. Its feels impressive when you look at how narrow the road is and how straight he keeps the car. This is what Jim Clark had to say after the jump.

"The car went on the limiter on the crest and thats 220 KPH! When we landed we were both winded and the shockers burst thats what caused the fire, the boot and rear quarters are bent down about 6 inches Never again i am in so much pain today. Apparently the record lenght jump set on a rally is 57 metre`s we must of been close to that? .... and he later added this: "It was one small step for mankind" They say no "pain no gain" and this is true cos i am going to gain a canny bill for the repairs. The bottom line is we are both going to recover and thats all that matters Thumbs Up!! On a lighter note; when i was in A+E the doctor came in and asked what had happened. I explained it went like this; I was doing 220KPH down the road, he said what type of road, i said single track back road.Then i took off on a jump and flew 60 metres and landed heavily... He said "your in the wrong hospital mate the mental hospital is 5 miles up the road"
