Illustration for article titled Worlds Most Difficult-to-Explain World Record has a New Record

Whatever happened to the World's Tallest Man or the World's Longest Female Beard? English Stuntman Terry Grant has just set a new record for spinning a car through the tightest gap. Basically, he performed a J-turn - -where you speed in reverse, yank on the handbrake while simultaneously spinning the steering wheel all the way in one direction, pushing in the clutch and shifting into first gear — through a gap only 18 centimeters longer than his car, a Renault Twingo. This shattered the previous record, set in 1999, by nearly 1.5 meters.
