Unfortunately GWR don't recognise individual model records so the Dastardly Danes have pinched our title - http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/wor ... oyota-cars

would there be enough interest to go for a new record if we included the GT86 / Celica / Supra etc peeps?

I'll come along if another one is organised, however I don't want to be involved in organising it again... it was a pretty tiring day, especially because it was in 30° heat and we (myself, Gaz and Kiz) didn't have a chance to sit down until the parade had been completed

It was pretty tiring! But at least Gaz & I managed to sneak into Race Control whilst photocopying some more forms... :toot:

I can't see any prospect whatsoever of doing this on our own. The numbers needed are simply too big. Opening it up to other clubs creates a problem with who will be credited by GWR as the named person/organisation on the Certificate? This could lead to some difficulties and I have no doubt somebody somewhere would throw their toys out of the pram over it.

I have an idea which I will be developing before too long. Watch this space for an update .

Agreed. And I'd definitely participate, and help out again now we know what regs we have to follow to get a World Record!

I'll keep watching this space :)
