The Guinness World Records' record for the tightest parallel park is 8 cm (3.15 inch) and was achieved by Han Yue (China) using the MINI 3 Door Hatch during the "China Drift Championship" held in Chongqing, China, on 14 November 2014.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the tightest parallel parking in reverse; it is 35 cm (13.77 in) and was achieved by Ronny Wechselberger aka Ronny C' Rock (Germany) on the set of Guinness World Records - Wir holen den Rekord nach Deutschland (RTL2), at Flugplatz Kindel in Eisenach, Germany, on 18 June 2012.
According to Moffatt, "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."
The new record beat the previous world record of 8cm which was set in November of last year.
Alastair previously held the Guinness World Records' record for the Tightest Parallel Park at 8.6cm and also has records for Tightest Double Parallel Park and Tightest Triple Parallel Park.
