Stuntman's record breaking car jump in California


A stuntman has beaten the record for the longest distance jumped in a car.

Travis Pastrana took a 269-foot (82m) 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.
