A United Kingdom man has smashed the world record for ‘most cars pulled by one man’ by dragging 14 cars over a distance of 18 feet and two inches.

Simon Plant, 42, of Findern, South Derbyshire, pulled a rope attached to 14 Ford Fiestas, weighing 20 tonnes combined, at Motorpoint in Derby, earlier this week.

He pulled the cars over a distance of 18 feet and two inches, breaking the previous record of pulling 12 cars over 15 feet.

Plant said this was his third attempt at the world record. I wasn’t going to give up. We all have goals in life and if you keep pushing and pushing you’ll get there. It was a tough challenge but thankfully it was a case of third time lucky,” Plant said.

Plant previously held a world record 11 years ago when he pulled a 30-tonne truck a distance of 100 feet.
