To get the Ranger Raptor rolling on the right two wheels only, Swift piloted the pickup truck up a ramp. He then proceeded to navigate it between two poles before bringing it back down to the ground.
“This car (Ford Ranger Raptor) has quite a lot of suspension travel,” remarked the 44-year-old stuntman, adding that “trying to keep it nice and stable while it went through the gap was my biggest challenge. But I am delighted that we’ve got it.”
On its official X page, Guinness Book of World Records wrote :
“Congratulations to stunt driver Paul Swift, who took to one side of wheels to set the record for the tightest gap driven through by a pickup truck on two wheels.”
Swift started performing car stunts at the age of seven on his family’s lawnmower. His latest feat comes few months after breaking the record for the “fastest time to complete five car stunts,” which he completed in an impressive 57.21 seconds during the British Motor Show 2023.
In addition to his latest record set on November 16, Swift is also the current record holder for the “tightest parallel park in an electric car” and “most donuts around a motorcycle performing a wheelie in one minute.”
