Video: World's best parallel park
SURE, THAT GAP LOOKS BIG ENOUGH: Forgot the standard "one car" distance, Han Yue managed to slide into a gap 15cm longer than his Mini Cooper S.
Parallel parking, even for veteran drivers, can be a pain though there’ll always be overachievers among us.
One of our most popular world records has been the hotly contested tightest parallel park title. Many drivers have attempted and hilariously failed over the past few years to earn their place in the Guinness Book of World Record. The title has changed hands five times since 2010 and German driving ace Ronny Wechselberger's attempt in 2011 became a YouTube sensation with millions of views.
In April 2012 Patrik Folco slid into a gap just 22cm longer than his car to seta new record. Sadly for Folco, his record would be broken a month later.
In May 2012 Chinese stunt driver Han Yue shaved an incredible 7cm from the record, drifting into a space 15cm longer than his special edition Mini Cooper S called 'The Chinese Job'.
