We are thrilled to announce that Guinness have awarded us the record of 640 vehicles for the largest parade of Land Rovers/ Range Rovers over a two mile parade. Over 900 vehicles gathered together at The Billing Off Road Show to help us bring the record back to the UK, the original home of the Land Rover. It was a hot, dusty day and we would like to thank every one of the participants for being a part of history and helping us to celebrate Land Rover's 70th Birthday.
Lancaster Insurance is thrilled to announce that with Land Rover Monthly it is supporting the Billing Off-Road Show 2018 in its bid to set a new WORLD RECORDS title for the ‘Largest parade of Land Rover/Range Rovers’. Taking place on Saturday 30th June around the tracks of the off road course. All Land Rover and Range Rover owners and lovers are being encouraged to attend the show and get involved in attempting to make history!
To celebrate Land Rover’s 70th anniversary, the attempt will aim to break the current record set in Portugal in 2014 with 516 vehicles taking part. To achieve the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title, there must be at least 517 cars in the parade.
Andrew Evanson, Lancaster Insurance’s Senior Operations Manager comments: “We’re absolutely thrilled to be supporting LRM and Billing Off-Road Show 2018 in their quest! After setting a brand new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDSTM in 2015 for the ‘Largest parade of MGs’, we know the passion and dedication needed to achieve their goal and seeing the number of Land Rovers and Range Rovers in a parade, will certainly be a sight to behold!”
