Freerunner, Gymnast & Stuntman Damien Walters Backflip Over Speeding Formula E Car

Freerunner, gymnast and Hollywood stuntman Damien Walters is no stranger to danger. With movie credits including Captain America, Skyfall and Assassin’s Creed, Damien’s performed in some of the most mind-blowing action sequences you’ve seen on screen.

Damien proposed his dream stunt to us – could he stand facing away from a Formula E car as it approaches from behind, and then perform a blind backflip over the car as it passes below? We present to you this perfect synchronisation of highly-tuned man and machine: The Leap Of Faith.

Official comment: Some of you have noticed differences in Damien’s landings in different takes. To allay your doubts, the stunt was performed more than once – the safety team in consultation with Damien decided that performing the jump again was viable. This allowed us to shoot more angles of the stunt, including the 360-degree version.
