Chinese stunt driver completes Nurburgring lap driving a two-wheeled side wheelie [w/video]

Just recently, Guinness World Record made official the record for the fastest two-wheeled side wheelie. Done in late August this year, Vesa Kivimaki achieved a top speed of 115.742 mph (186.269 km/h) with his BMW 335i Coupe to set a new Guinness World Record for the fastest two-wheeled side wheelie. This is a difficult feat, even though it was made at a flat runway.

But how about doing a two-wheeled side wheelie on the Nurburgring Nordschleife? This would be a greater challenge, in terms of either distance or speed. However, Chinese stunt driver Han Yue – piloting a prepped MINI Hatchback -- has just set a new distance record for two-wheeled side wheelie at Nurburgring.

The Nurburgring has been regarded as a definitive one-lap test that has become a yardstick that measures the true worth of production cars. This 12.93-mile (20.81 kilometers) circuit -- technically a public road sans the speed limit – features sweeping curves, significant climbs and drops as well as variable surfaces, and a straightaway that stretches for more than a mile. Truly, Nurburgring is a challenging course where many have tried and continue to try setting new records in terms of distance and speed. And to try to set a new distance record while doing a two-wheeled side wheelie at Nurburgring is a very amazing feat indeed.
