MINI, the heaviest car balanced on the head, a feat achieved by strongman John Evans.
Evans, now 74, has smashed about 98 world records for a range of feats of balancing and strength.
He wants to reach 100 world records before retiring.
Back in May 24th 1999, John Evans balanced a gutted Mini car weighing a total of 159.6 kg (352 lb) on his head for 33 seconds at The London Studios, London, England.
John, now 74, said:
“I used to work on building sites when I was about 18, which is when I realised I could carry 24 bricks on my head and go up ladders to keep the brickies going.
“When I was about 45, I saw Geoff Capes, the world’s strongest man, performing in Ripley and hold 24 bricks on his chest, to massive acclaim.
“I thought ‘well I can balance 36 on my head – I should give this a go’.”
Since then, the legendary headbalancing strongman has balanced other immensely heavy objects, including cars and speedboats on his head.
Mr Evans, who has smashed about 98 world records for a range of feats of balancing and strength, including 50 that were acknowledged by Guinness, wants to reach 100 world records before retiring.
He said he has also raised “well over £250,000 for charity”, including Children in Need, the PDSA and blind charities, from his head-balancing act – which are close to his heart as he is one eyed.
