In a crazy world where you thought you'd seen it all, Günter Schachermayr comes along and goes one better: ski flying on a Vespa! Yes, you heard that right. In Höhenhart (Ried im Innkreis), the Vespa stuntman, adventurer and loving father of two set out to challenge the laws of physics and common sense.

With a prepared Red Bull Vespa PK 50, on which he bravely mounted 2.40 metre long Olympic skis, he tackled the ski jump, which was built by the visionary Alois Wenger. The stunt required not only dizzying calculations and preparations, but also a good dose of madness. Because let's be honest, who thinks of flying when they think of a Vespa?

The start on the ski jump
Almost as free as a bird

Flying distance: just under 200 metres

On 6 April, the time had finally come: Schachermayr, whose courage is obviously as great as the length of his skis, conquered the ski jump. Despite trembling knees and a cold sweat on his forehead, he was not deterred. His goal? An entry in the Guinness Book of Records under the category "Curiosities", a huge jump and, of course, to land safely. And he managed it! With a breathtaking flight of 198.5 metres, he landed safely and was almost overcome with emotion.

Günter Schachermayr proved it once again: Not only can you whizz through the city on a Vespa, you can also soar almost 200 metres through the air. An achievement that will go down in history, accompanied by tears of relief and the pride of having made the impossible possible.

We congratulate "dem Wüdi auf da Maschin" on his spectacular success and eagerly await to see what he plans to do next. Because if one thing is certain, it's that Günter Schachermayr will surprise us again and again!
