New Guinness World Record for tightest parallel park
Former Guinness World Record holder for the tightest parallel park, Alistair Moffatt, has reclaimed his record, parking a Fiat 500 with just 7.5cm to spare.
MOFFATT CHOSE a Fiat 500 to reclaim his Guinness World Record for the world’s tightest parallel park. An instructor at Stunt Drive UK, Moffatt previously held the record with just 8.6cm to spare, but that record was lost a month ago to Chinese driver Han Yue who parked a MINI with 8cm to spare. Moffatt still holds records for Tightest Double Parallel Park and Tightest Triple Parallel Park.
According to Fiat, the vehicle used by Moffatt was stock standard with just the ESC disconnected to allow the vehicle to slide, the tyres over inflated to help overcome the grippy surface and a knob added to the steering wheel to allow him to turn the wheel quickly.
Moffat said: “It’s wonderful to have my record back! With the gap getting ever smaller, finding the right vehicle is increasingly important, so the light weight, agility, dimensions and parking-friendly shape of the FIAT 500 makes it perfect to getting into even the tightest parking spots.”
