Watch A Semi Jump 50 Meters To Set A New World Record

If you thought the guys and girls who do crazy stunts with motorbikes and cars were pushing the limits, how about doing a massive leap driving a semi???

Gregg Godfrey has set a new world record by jumping over 50 meters....driving a semi at a three day event in the US dedicated to legendary stuntman Evel Knievel....

With the previous record set at just 18 meters, Godfrey leapt into the record books in impressive style.

“I hit so hard, I think I’m concussed. I don’t think I’m all there,” he said, afterwards.

"In total, three world records were broken during the Days, and more to the point, Evel Knievel’s legacy lived on."   

Watch it again up close and in slow motion....
