Moffatt unofficially retakes record for World's Tightest Parallel Park

Some people just don’t quit. Han Yue and Alastair Moffatt are two of those people.

The two have traded record for the world’s Tightest Parallel Park throughout the course of the past few years.

Just two months ago, Chinese stunt driver Han Yue put his name back in the Guinness World Records after parking a Mini Cooper in a spot with just 8 centimeters (3.15 inches) to spare between his vehicle and the cars ahead of and behind him combined.

But now it’s a new year, and time for a new record, at least according to British driver Alastair Moffatt. In a Fiat 500, Moffatt won back the record with just 7.5 centimeters (2.95 inches) to spare at the 2015 Autosport International Racing Car Show.

The record is subject to verification by Guinness World Records, but is nonetheless still impressive to watch.
