18 Double Decker Buses, 27th August 1983
At Norman Park, Bromley, Kent. Both a world distance and obstacle record were achieved. The obstacle record still stands today. The world record was achieved on a KTM495. At the time it was a first for a jumper to make the attempt twice, one jump straight after the other. This record was set using old style ramps, one angle straight through.
The jump was viewed on ITN, BBC National and across the world. It was even featured on Jack Palance’s tv show Ripley’s Believe It or Not.
This jump gained Chris his first entry into the Guinness Book of Records.
