World's Fastest Supercars Brave Rain and Mud for Annual 'Secret' Meetup

Owners of some of the world’s most sought-after supercars braved torrential rain and mud to show off their vehicles at an annual invitation-only event.

A Porsche 918 Spyder, Ferrari LaFerrari and Bugatti Veyron Super Sport World Record Edition – one of only five in the world – were among the 200 high-performance cars on show at the ‘Secret Supercar Meet’, held at Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome and Proving Ground, Leicestershire.

The get-together, organised by supercar owners club Supercar Driver, raised nearly £5,000 for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospital in Sheffield, which offers care and support to children with shortened life expectancy.

Event organiser Adam Thorby, owner of Supercar Driver, said it was a testament to the group’s members that the cars were on show despite the weather, which could potentially damage the vehicles.

He said: ‘The turnout from members was staggering considering the forecast which was heavy rain all day. You would be lucky to see any one of those cars out in the height of summer, let alone the full group in less than ideal conditions.

‘It is testament to our members who had committed to the event and have bought their cars to use them, whatever the weather.’

The fleet of vehicles, which boast a combined worth more than £20million, also included a Mercedes AMG 300SL that was custom made for the Sultan of Brunei.

Video: Stunt Driver Sets New World Record For Tightest Parallel Park

Video: Stunt Driver Sets New World Record For Tightest Parallel Park

Remember your driving test? Parallel parking probably seemed like the hardest part of getting a license, but there are some that have almost made it a competitive sport.

Yes, the Guinness World Record for parallel parking has been hotly contested in recent years. Chinese stunt driver Han Yue recently regained the title of most-precise parker after losing it to a pair of British brothers last year.

Yue broke the record in a MINI Cooper S during the recent China Drift Championship event at Chongqing Olympic Park, sliding into a space just 8 centimeters (about 3.1 inches) longer than the car.

That beats the 5.16 inches set by Alastair Moffatt in an original Mini. That happened on the same day his brother John beat Yue’s original record, but now Yue is back on top and it looks like he might be there for some time.

The dramatic sliding seen in the video isn’t just for showing off, either. With so little clearance, reversing a car into the space the conventional way simply won’t work. With this latest record, it seems like there’s as little room for advancement as their is between the parked MINIs’ bumpers.

It’s also somewhat ironic that, while professional drivers are competing to accomplish the tightest parking jobs, the number of regular drivers that can competently parallel park could very well decrease as electronic aids take over much of the work.
