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.
