MINI Cooper S sets Nurburgring lap record - on two wheels

A Chinese stunt driver has set one of the most daring Nurburgring lap records you're ever likely to see. Han Yue, completed a full tour of the circuit in a MINI Cooper S, on only two wheels!

Yue took 45 minutes to lap the circuit while balanced on the car’s left side wheels and it resulted in a lap recorded being set. He was also escorted around the track by a fleet of support vehicles for the full 12.9 miles, averaging a speed of 17.4 mph.

The MINI Cooper S was modified for the challenge. A welded differential and a solid, airless construction tyre with six lugs replaced the MINI’s usual tyres.
