    There was a pic a few years back of Markko Martin (IIRC) in Rally Finland, where fans had marked the distance from the take-off point of a "yump". He was touching down on the 55 meter mark. That's about the same distance, and without any special ramps. The height Ken gets with those ramps is mighty impressive, though!

    Yeah, it is impressive! I cringed when I saw the cracked windshield.

    I don't think these struts were too happy about it either, lol.
    I wonder if the car's bottom struck the ground? Looks like it might have. That would be a pretty hard landing!
