Wingsuit jumpers in downhill sky race

It might not seem like your idea of fun but dressing like a bat and jumping off the side of a cliff is exactly what a group of wingsuit base jumpers have been doing in China, as part of a downhill sky race.

It was held earlier this month in Hunan province, in a mountain range thought to have inspired the floating mountains of Pandora in the Hollywood blockbuster film Avatar.
