  • Short Summary

    A male and female driver perform a stunt involving somersaulting in a car.

  • Description

    "Lots of big strong men would think twice about trying this stunt - but a girl has dared it - and survived!"

    Two men and two women climb to the top of a large metal structure. At the top of the structure are two cars. One of the men gets into one, one of the women into another. C/U of the cars. The woman's car has the word "Bullet" painted on the side. The man and woman wave at the camera. L/S of the two cars travelling down the metal structure at great speed and crashing into each other at the bottom. The man's car does a somersault.

    "The slow-motion camera tells its own tale of the event." The second car travels straight forward at the bottom of the jump whereas the first car does several somersaults before it lands. C/U of the two drivers - they smile at the camera.
