Well done to Dani Maynard and the other 27 girls from our local David Lloyd Club who have broken two Guinness World Records by squeezing record numbers of ladies into both New Generation and Classic Mini's! Its great to see such a positive spotlight being put on #Eastbourne, #EastSussex and #BritishEngineering in the shape of the iconic #MINI.
Anyone who says you can’t squeeze many people into a MINI -prepare to eat your words. A team of gym members from East Sussex has broken two Guinness World Records for the number of people inside both a classic Mini and a 2012 MINI.
An amazing tally of 28 ladies crammed their way into the MINI at Potters Fields Park, London as part of the eighth annual Guinness World Records day. The team broke their own previous record of 27 people, which they set in Eastbourne last year. The ladies made full use of every inch of space available in the MINI, including the dashboard, the footwells and they even managed to squeeze four people in the boot.
As soon as they celebrated their first record the ladies dashed off to the ITV studios to attempt the second record live on This Morning, where by squeezing a staggering 23 ladies into a classic Mini, they managed to beat the previous record by two people. Today more than 400,000 people around the world are taking part in record-breaking events for the eighth annual Guinness World Records Day, which commemorates the day in 2004 when Guinness World Records became the world’s best-selling copyright book.
