His car zooms in along a rickety wooden runway that bends under the weight of the car.
The spectators are fascinated when the car reaches the end of the runway and seems to fly through the air.
As the car floats through the air, the frame seems to rise from its wheels.
As soon as the car clears the distance, 250 feet, it comes back to earth and hits a giant blue inflatable landing mat.
The distance that Mr. Qilong cleared was almost twice as large as that of a comparable record in 1997.
Driver Ke Shouliang jumped over the Hukou waterfall on the Yellow River in China and cleared a distance of 165 feet.
