This Guinness World Record is calculated by adding the length of both cars and subtracting this measurement from the distance between the two parked cars. The two cars are then parked into the space without touching either of the parked cars, each other and within 30cm of the kerb line.
Alastair, a Master Instructor at Stunt Drive UK also holds Guinness World Records for the Tightest Single Parallel Park, Tightest Reverse Parallel Park and Tightest Gap Driven through on Two Wheels. Whilst John and Alastair jointly hold the Tightest Triple Parallel Park and Fastest Time for Three Cars to Complete Ten Donuts in a Fan Formation with Alastair.
Commenting on their achievement, John noted, “With a team World Record its really important that both of us are at the top of our game at the exact same time. Its taken lots of practicing to achieve this record today and create a new precision driving record” The Moffatt Brothers’ astounding display of precision driving is also available for viewing on BBC iPlayer.
