The return run saw the human-machine combo reach 61.45 mph (98.9 km/h), slightly less than on the out run. Nevertheless, the average of the two runs (62.05 mph or 99.87 km/h) was good enough to break a Guinness World Record. Clearly proud of his newly set record, 22-year-old Barrow declared, “I do think though that I could’ve easily handled going a lot faster if it wasn’t for the soft snow due to unseasonably mild weather.”
Daredevil or not, the young lad is one hell of a sport. “I’m really looking forward to returning and attempting to beat my own record with the Mitsubishi ASX when there are more favorable weather conditions!” Need we say more about what will happen to the newly set Guinness World Record? Clearly, Jamie will come back to St. Moritz not only to break the record again but to surpass himself as a sportsman and overcome his fear.
On this occasion, the car is not the star. Sorry, Mitsubishi, but the ASX is getting kind of old now. The real star is Jamie because he pushes himself as hard as he can, despite the fact that he suffered a serious injury in 2013 resulting in dropping out of the British Snowboard Cross Team. Good on you, Jamie!
