RECORD-BREAKING stunt man Russ Swift screeched into York at the weekend to display his jaw-dropping car tricks.

Driving a Mini Cooper, Russ, who holds the world records for a number of car stunts, wowed the crowds at the grand opening of Castle Mini, a new extension to Castle BMW at Clifton Moor.

Throughout Saturday and Sunday Russ performed a series of stunts, including reverse spins, where the car spins from reverse to forward between two cars at 40 miles per hour, hand-brake parking, where the car ends up parked between two cars without the use of the reverse gear, and a stunning dance routine set to music.

Children's entertainment and a live broadcast by Minster FM also took place and one person drove off in a new Mini after a free draw.
