Be Jelly Of This Subaru BRZ Guinness World Record Setting Donut – Video

Get it? Jelly? Donut? I’ll see myself out.

Stunt driver and world record collector Alistair Moffatt recently beat the Guinness World Record for tightest 360-degree spin in a Subaru BRZ.  Moffatt spun his BRZ between two rows of parked cars only 2.25 meters wider than the Subaru is long and continued driving to win the record. The BRZ was completely stock, the only modification was that all of the electronic driving aids were turned off.  Alistair says he “just ripped a load of fuses out of it and nothing works apart from the steering wheel clutch and brake.”

Moffatt also holds the titles for tightest parallel park forward single, triple parallel park, reverse parallel park, tightest through and through on two wheels. When he beat the world record for tightest 360 spin in the BRZ, it was his seventh (according to the video, he held six records going in, but a Guinness page about about another of his records doesn’t mention reverse parallel park or the other two, so it’s possible he holds them with a different recording body or he earned them in the last few weeks. Either way I couldn’t find any info on the two mystery records, so if you know, please share in the comments).
The former world record for the tightest donut was completed in a space 2.5 meters longer than the car, and this stunt shaved 25 centimeters off that. So the total amount of space for the BRZ to spin in was 6.48 meters (4.23 meters for the BRZ plus 2.25 meters) or 21.26 feet (13.88 feet for the BRZ plus 7.38 feet).
