AN OUTRAGEOUS world-first stunt has seen a superbike ridden underneath a car – while the car was being driven on two wheels around one of Silverstone’s famous corners.
Pro bike racer Chris ‘The Stalker’ Walker rode a Kawasaki ZX-10R Ninja British Superbike underneath a special edition Alfa Romeo MiTo SBK being driven on two wheels by stunt driving ace Paul Swift.
The move, dubbed ‘the undertaker’ by the organisers, saw Paul flip the MiTo onto two wheels before driving around Brooklands bend and being undertaken by Chris on the ZX-10R.
Staged to coincide with the MiTo SBK’s arrival in the UK, the move is thought to be the first of its kind ever attempted.
Alfa is the ongoing sponsor of the FIM World Superbike Championship and the collaboration has lead to the rapid special edition MiTo’s birth. Powered by a 170bhp turbocharged 1.4-litre engine, the SBK has unique decals, a racing body kit including side skirts and rear lower spoiler and 18-inch alloy wheels shrouding red Brembo brake calipers.
It can be bought only in solid black with Alfa Red roof and mirror caps.
