Most people couldn’t even lift a car off the ground, let alone flip it over – so Jean Caron’s record for the Most times to roll a car in 5 minutes by an individual is simply extraordinary.
The attempt is featured on the latest episode of As Seen on TV: China – a new video series from Guinness World Records which showcases a selection of the most awe-inspiring, hilarious and sometimes shocking record attempts featured on Chinese television shows over recent years.
The Canadian World’s Strongest Man competitor went head-to-head with Serbia’s Ervin Katona, who achieved a final total of 11 flips in 3 min 23 sec.
However, Jean managed to complete an exhausting 13 car rolls, finishing his final flip with five seconds to spare.
Challengers for this title can use any car, but it must weigh at least 500 kg (1,102 lb 4 oz).
To assist with gripping the vehicle, short metal handles may be welded to the undersides of the vehicles.
Jean is also a powerlifter and has won Canada’s Strongest Man seven times since 2011.
The previous record for the most times to roll a car in five minutes is 10 and was achieved by Franz Muellner (Austria) on the set of ‘Rekorlar Dunyasi' in Istanbul, Turkey, on 17 July 2013.
