It’s important to note that they had an ambulance nearby in case anything went wrong, as hitting those speeds there’s a whole hell of a lot that can go wrong, and it proves that regardless of what you’re doing safety should be a priority. Had he even hit a pebble on the track he stood a chance of losing control, but the elongated frame and his laying down position probably helped. Then there’s the fact that right under him was strapped a rocket engine providing roughly 944lbs. of thrust, or 4.2kN! Had anything gone wrong with that or if it had exploded then there’s no telling where Gissy would be today; thankfully nothing of the sort happened and we get to see what is truly a daredevil’s race!
