Not the most common event, especially at grass-roots level, as it requires someone to sacrifice a car for the benefit of the competition. But as the name suggests, the strongman must flip a car (yes, an actual car). Depending on the weight it may be timed for a certain number of repetitions or simply (!) one flip.
The event is great to watch and allows the general public to appreciate the weight involved far more than a deadlift or squat with standard weight plates.
Without a standardised or accepted car to flip there aren’t any records of any real meaning for this event. But we don’t think that matters as it’s still great to watch.
