Chinese drifter and stunt driver Han Yue has achieved a new Guinness World Record for the tightest parallel parking job

Chinese drifter and stunt driver Han Yue has achieved a new Guinness World Record for the tightest parallel parking job.

During the China Drift Championship held in Chongqing, he managed to park a MINI 3 Door Hatch into a parking gap that’s only 8 cm (3.15 in) longer than the vehicle used for the stunt. The previous record was set by British driver Alastair Moffatt in July last year, when he parked the vehicle in a 8.6 cm (3.4 in) longer parking spot.

In 2012 Han Yue managed to park a MINI Cooper Chinese Job special edition into a parking spot that was 15 cm (5.91 in) longer than the vehicle itself.
