Travis Pastrana is never one to back down from a death-defying stunt so as you can expect, when he talked about ringing in 2010 by jumping 250 feet into the air on board his Red Bull Subaru WRX STI rally car onto a waiting barge, none of us second-guessed his sanity.

After a few botched practice sessions, the time finally came for Pastrana to do his New Year’s jump and as the video of the whole episode will show you, Pastrana surely kicked off 2010 off to a rousing start.

Check it out.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Good thing that he doesn’t hurt himself so bad.

Now that is one way to start the new year. I really like it when Pastrana is in the tracks. I remember him one time flipping his Subaru while on an X games race. What can I say? The dude can drive. That is one long jump and it looked really smooth.

That was an amazing Death-Defying stunts of travis pastrana, that was a perfect landing but he goes to fast that’s why he hit the end road, but this is a cool and must watch movie specially it is in HD one.

That’s horrifying to watch but after the successful jump, really point my middle finger on the monitor and said, "woahhh! that’s damn crazy". My only concern is on the driver of that car but if you will watched the video, he can do it on an additional 20 feet long.
