Travis Pastrana’s World Record Jump (Video)

Travis Pastrana New Year’s Eve Jump Videotravis-pastrana-world-record-jump-video: Daredevil Travis Pastrana set a new world record for the longest jump in a rally car on New Year’s Eve, breaking the previous record set by Ken Block in November 2006.

His 270 feet jump over open water, in front a live television audience, shattered the old record set by his Subaru teammate. The stunt was the latest in Red Bull’s New Year, No Limits series.

Travis landed on a barge floating 200 feet off the Long Beach pier, flew into the tire wall and jumped out of the vehicle to celebrate with loads of people lining the wharf.

This idea started earlier in the year when executives from Red Bull asked all of the action sports stars they support to come up with some concepts for events like breaking records.
