Stunt Driving Brothers, Alastair and John Moffatt have claimed the Guinness World Record for the Narrowest Gap Driven Through by Two Cars on Two Wheels Simultaneously
This amazing feat was recorded for CBBC’s Officially Amazing on 12th September 2016, held under BBC embargo until the programme aired on Wednesday 31st May 2017 at 5.30pm.
The Guinness World Record has now been reduced to a combined gap of 1.29m.
This Guinness World Record is calculated by adding the width of both cars and subtracting this measurement from the distance between the two markers defining the gap. The two cars are then driven through the space without touching either of the markers or each other.
This latest record is an addition to the collection of records the pair already hold. 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 Double Parallel Park, Tightest Triple Parallel Park and Fastest Time for Three Cars to Complete Ten Donuts in a Fan Formation with their brother Trevor.
Commenting on their achievement, Alastair noted, ‘This is one of the hardest records we have ever undertaken, with a lengthy training programme needing to be in place. This makes achieving it all the sweeter!’
The Moffatt Brothers astounding display of precision driving is also available for viewing on BBC iPlayer.
