Travis Pastrana Prepares World Record Jump

Motorsports and stunts performer Travis Pastrana is getting ready for the next challenge of his career, though some might say he had done it all. Four consecutive Rally America championship titles, nine X Games gold medals and the first double backflip on a motorcycle. These are only some of achievements from his portfolio.

Now, Pastrana is preparing to set the world record for longest distance jump in a rally car on New Year’s Eve at Red Bull: New Year. No Limits. He will try to accomplish the first ever ramp-to-ramp car jump over water, a stunt that will test the laws of physics and add another accomplishment to his career.

With the world-famous Queen Mary docked in the background, Pastrana will jump his rally car off the Pine Street Pier onto a floating barge anchored in Long Beach’s Rainbow Harbor, aiming to shatter the existing mark of 171 feet and establish a new world distance record. Live…

“I’m looking forward to being part of Red Bull: New Year. No Limits.,” said Pastrana. “Live events are always difficult and more entertaining, both for the fans and the participants, and so many factors play into the success of this jump. I live for this kind of excitement.”

Red Bull: New Year. No Limits. will be televised live on ESPN/ESPN HD on Thursday, December 31. “We are thrilled to team again with Red Bull to televise this live and exciting event on ESPN for a third year. ESPN is dedicated to bringing live and compelling programming to the viewer and no New Year’s show delivers more unique suspense and action than Red Bull: New Year. No Limits,” added Joan Lynch, ESPN vice president, content development.
