World Base Race 2012
These are the amazing images from the World Base Race in Norway – where competitors throw themselves from the top of a CLIFF. The stomach-churning event was won this weekend by brave British flying ace Tony Uragallo, 59. Competitors wearing state-of-the-art wingsuits throw themseles off a platform 1,300 metres up a mountain cliff – with the winner being the fastest down. They release their parachutes at an optimum point to glide safely to the finish line.
