Breathe in! The Guinness World Record for the number of people inside a MINI has been
smashed by members of an East Sussex gym. Picture the scene. A 2012 MINI Cooper
SD with a Union Jack finish was sitting in Potters Fields Park, London. Twenty-eight ladies
– who might have skipped breakfast to keep themselves slim - then climbed aboard the
supermini. This involved placing limbs, heads, and appendages into numerous odd places.
As such four ladies sat in the boot, others squeezed into the floorwells, some climbed on
the dashboard, and the conventional opted for seats. The result was a Guinness World
Record that eclipsed, by one, the team's previous best that was set last year in Eastbourne.
But that was only part of the story. Four-hundred thousand people, you see, were taking
part in Guinness World Records Day which commemorates the time, in 2004, that the
Guinness World Records became the world’s best-selling copyrighted book. This inspired
the ladies further. They therefore unfolded themselves from their precarious positions,
popped their joints back into place, and raced to the This Morning television studio. Here,
they increased the World Record the for most people in a classic MINI from twenty-one, to
a mighty twenty-three. Very clever, but perhaps a minibus would be more suitable transport.
