World’s Youngest Wall Of Death Motorbike Rider (17yr)
A 17-year-old girl left school to land her first job as the world’s youngest female Wall of Death rider – without a motorbike license.
Jaimi Tyrrell joined a troupe of stunt riders after completing her GCSEs and now tours the UK and Europe.
The daredevil teen hits speeds of up to 45mph on the vertical 20ft high wall as she rides horizontally around the 32ft wide cylinder.
Performing under the name Jaimi Starr, she cannot wear a helmet as this would affect the drag and she must keep a constant speed to beat the gravity that would otherwise pull her down.
Jaimi insisted she had no regrets about her career choice and said she was attracted by the ‘exciting’ lifestyle of a stunt bike rider.
The teenager was introduced to the motorbike world by family friend Ken Fox who runs the Ken Fox Troupe stunt riding show.
