A stuntman Travis Pastrana has beaten the record for the longest distance jumped in a car, BBC has reported.


Travis Pastrana took a 250-foot flying leap off Long Beach Pier, over open water, and landed on a floating barge in the harbour.

It's the longest jump ever in a car, shattering the previous world record of 171 feet.

I was really nervous all day long, but when I got in the car I felt really calm, said Pastrana. It was definitely a lot more fun than any of my practice runs, and when I landed, man did that retaining wall come up fast! Im just happy the car and I didnt end up in the drink. What a way to head into 2010!
