In the 2013 Dakar Rally, Chicherit won a stage and finished eight overall driving an SMG buggy.

In 2013, he became the first driver to complete an unassisted backflip in a car.

In March 2014 Chicherit tried to break the world record for longest car ramp jump in Tignes, France. He crashed spectacularly on landing, but only suffered relatively minor injuries.

In August 2015 Chicherit joined JRM Racing for two events in the FIA World Rallycross Championship driving the MINI RX in the Supercar class in Loheac, France and Franciacorta, Italy.

In the 2016 Dakar Rally, Chicherit drove the X-Raid Buggy but retired on medical grounds following a steering related issue during SS5. He will not return to Dakar Rally with X-Raid in the future. Again, Chicherit joined the FIA World Rallycross Championship, teaming up with Monster Energy athlete Liam Doran at JRM Racing for selected events in France, Barcelona and Germany. However, a non-start for Chicherit in Loheac meant he also entered the inaugural event in Riga, Latvia.
