[VIDEO] Han Yue Earns Tightest Parallel Park Record
Parallel parking is becoming something of a lost art form. Many of us struggle to fit our cars into even the most generous of spaces when the cruel world rids us of all perpendicular options. One man, Han Yue, however, is keeping the art alive. In fact, Han of China just broke the Guinness World Record for Tightest Parallel Park.
Just how tight? The man left nothing but an 8cm gap during the “China Drift Championship” that was held last month at Chongqing Olympic Park. Check it out:
Han beat the previous record for Tightest Parallel Park by 0.6cm; that record had been held by Alastair Moffatt of Britain, set over a year ago in July of 2013. His record of 8.6cm was believed to be unbeatable. Han had previously held the record at 15cm, which he set back in 2012, until Moffatt stole it from him.
But one record is never enough, right? Han also went for a very oddly specific record: most donuts around a car driving on two wheels in one minute. You can check out that successful record below as well:
Reportedly, Han says he wanted to break these records to remind the world that China was a country of world-leading drivers. Plus, he probably wasn’t too happy that a man with a name like Moffatt had stolen the record from him last year.
Han’s endeavors might be impressive, but we still think this New York driver has him beat:
