19 teenage girls cram into a smart fortwo in Pakistan

Pakistan has broken a world record set by an Australian team earlier this year, but if you’re thinking its got anything to do with cricket, hockey, or another traditional sporting rivalry between the two nations, you’d be wrong.

A team of 19 teenage girls is the new holder of the Guinness World Record for the prestigious title of ‘Most people crammed in smart car’, breaking the previous mark of 18 recorded by the Climb Fit Team in Sydney in January.

The girls, all students at Karachi Grammar, took just one minute to pile into the smart fortwo and stayed in position for 10 seconds, double the length of the previous record.

A number of big names were on hand to witness the record, including former cricket captain Waseem Akram, former hockey captain Islahuddin Siddique, advisors to the Prime Minister and the government, and of course, officials from Guinness.

Guinness World Records also recently awarded a record to a group of surfers in California who drove 30 metres with 282 surfboards stacked on the roof of their car.
