The famous stunt driver from the land of China, Han Yue has recently claimed a new Guinness World Record. This record was set for the tightest parallel parking job, which this Chinese stunt driver achieved in a BMW MINI Cooper. Han Yue successfully slid the famous MINI Cooper in a parking space that was just 15 centimetres or 5.91 inches longer than the legendary car itself. The previous record for tightest parking job was set last month by Patrik Folco, who was able to slide his car into a parking spot that was just 22 centimetres or 8.66 inches longer than the vehicle he was driving.
Han Yue had kept the organisers of the title paring the gap down till the till he got to the 15 cms. The Guinness World Record for the tightest parallel parking job is evidently one of those titles that are contested very heatedly and has seen a change of hand for five times in the last two years. This performance by the Chinese stunt driver Han Yue of winning the title of the Guinness World Record was a part of the launch of the MINI special edition in Beijing, which is known as The Chinese Job.
