Watch a hero back-flip over a speeding race car

Formula E racer has physically fit man flipping head over heels
It takes a very certain kind of person to wake up one morning, drink their morning coffee, ponder life, and come to the conclusion that they need to perform a backflip over a speeding race car.
Thankfully for us, that person exists — his name being Damien Walters.
What makes this particularly impressive from my point of view was that the car jumped is a Formula E racer; one of the most quiet race cars on the planet — making the timing of the jump just that little bit more challenging.
Is it fake? We've had a selection of office-goers view the video, and its 360-degree view below, and the universal conclusion is that it's heaps legit.
Tune in later when the Driven team try to replicate the video in our building's basement with a Lotus. Not really.
