The Wings & Wheels team are thrilled to announce we have successfully set the new Guinness World Records title for ’Longest line of toy cars’ and our certificate is winging its way to Dunsfold Aerodrome.
The world record attempt, which saw 3,737 cars lined up over 258.2 metres, was completed on the Top Gear track with a little help from Hawk pilots Flt Lt Phil Bird and Flt Lt Bruce Poole, volunteers from Help for Heroes, Brooklands Museum, Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance and Cranleigh Village Hospital Trust, as well as 14 Sussex Wing Air Cadets and 17 families and fans of Wings & Wheels.
Two independent officials, Richard Newsam of Curchod & Co and Lt. Col. Bill Carling were also on hand to oversee proceedings and make sure everything was in order. The Wings & Wheels team have beaten the current world record of 3,001 cars and a length of 239.1 metres.
Nancy Edwards, Wings & Wheels Event Manager comments; “We are over the moon we’ve succeeded in our Guinness World Records attempt and really proud to be able to display cars from the record at Wings & Wheels on Sunday 26th & Monday 27th August 2012. We want to say a massive thank you to everyone who helped, enabling us to enter the very select club of Guinness World Records title holders.”
