Man breaks record for tightest parallel parking in reverse

On Guinness World Records Day, a man pulled off a seemingly impossible feat to break a hotly contested record.

Alastair Moffatt of Great Britain broke the world record for the tightest parallel parking job – in reverse – by a margin almost as narrow as the space he squeezed into.

Driving a Mini Cooper, Moffatt wheeled, spun, and slid his way into the spot with just 34 centimeters (13.38 inches) between vehicles. The previous record was 35cm.

On its website, Guinness called it "one of the most competitive records in the stunt driving field."

Moffatt already holds the record for tightest parallel park – 6.5cm.
