Behind the scenes of the viral flying rally car video

Awards, beers, eBay, clones, drones, a big yellow crane plus a crash landing – the full story and secrets behind the jaw-dropping #Skydriver viral video have been revealed in a short follow-up film released this week.

What started life as some bar-room bravado banter ended up, more than two years later, with a liveried car flying down one of Zip World’s adventure tourism wires at Slate Mountain, Blaenau Ffestiniog – an incredible stunt that has already been watched by many hundreds of thousands of online viewers since being released on August 1.

Although some of the more eagle-eyed browsers did spot that two different look-a-like Dayinsure liveried cars had been used for the rally driving and sky driving elements (the clue was in the wheels), what the cameras didn’t reveal was the car’s somewhat unplanned bumpy landing at the end of its dramatic, high speed flight down Zip World Titan.


The full story is now disclosed in a special behind-the-scenes #InsideSkydriver film. The edit includes yet to be seen footage of the spectacular stunt plus interviews with key members of the ambitious #Skydriver team who were not only responsible for dreaming up such a crazy proposition but also for actually accomplishing the eye-catching feat.

Moreover, #InsideSkydriver re-emphasises the relevance of the stunt with two of the World Championship speed tests on the 2018 Dayinsure Wales Rally GB itinerary to be staged for the very first time at Slate Mountain on Friday, October 5.

#InsideSkydriver and the original #Skydriver edit can be shared from the event’s social media channels.
