(If you want to break a record that is published in a record book or governed by an international authorithy, there may be other or additional rules. See here for more information.)
The car and bus cramming records are all subject to the following rules:
- The vehicle must be a standard production model.
- No seats, fitments and such shall be removed.
- All windows, doors, boot and bonnet must be closed on competition.
- The time limit to achieve the record must be no more than 10 minutes.
- The vehicle’s engine must be started on completion of the cram.
- The team members must be at least 16 years old.
Because of the vast number of makes of vehicles on the road today, the number of car cramming records in this list should be reduced to a few cars only. If you want to set a record, please prefer to beat a record that is in our list. However, we will expand the list if there are interesting new claims for well-known cars.
(Note: The rules used by Guinness World Records differ from the above rules. In particular, Guinness requires a minimum age of 18 years and no person who is less than 1.525 m [5ft] may participate.]
