What better way to celebrate Land Rover's 70th birthday than to break a World Record! An astonishing 912 vehicles entered and paraded almost 3 miles.
An enormous thank you to you all for being a part of helping us to bring the record of the largest parade of Land Rovers back to the UK. We were totally overwhelmed with the amount of participants.
The weather was perfect, although somewhat dusty, as everyone set off for their 3 mile picturesque drive. Guinness have now officially awarded us with the World Record for the largest parade of Land Rovers. The strict rules set by Guinness meant that the record is for 640 vehicles, despite having 910 vehicles start the parade.
Photographs were taken of everyone as they went through the finish arch. These are available at http://www.picman.co.uk/albums.php.
We never imagined that we would have so many participants and so if you were missing your plaque and have a wristband numbered over 750 we will post it to you. Please tell us your wristband number, vehicle registration, name and address.

The previous record featured 632 vehicles and was achieved in Germany in May 2018.
Whilst you were queueing, Help 4 Heroes had a bucket collection as it was National Armed Forces Day on Saturday 30th June. Your kind generosity meant they collected £589.77, plus a spiderman sticker, 3 euros and 2 washers!! On behalf of Help 4 Heroes, I would like to thank all that donated.
Lastly we would like to thank Lancaster Insurance Services and Land Rover Monthly for all their help in achieving this record.
