Lancaster Insurance has announced it will be attempting to set a Guinness World Records title for the ‘Largest parade of MGs’ with the help of the MG Owners’ Club (MGOC).
Taking place on Saturday 11 April at Rockingham Circuit in Corby, Northamptonshire; all MG owners and lovers are being encouraged to unite and get involved in what will be a world first.
The brand new attempt will take ‘pole position’ on the Oval Track, the UK’s only banked Oval and Europe’s fastest motor racing circuit, after the first MGOC Race Championship event has finished. An official Guinness World Records adjudicator will also be in attendance, overseeing the attempt and confirming on the day if a new record has been set. Lancaster will then be capping off the tremendous occasion by holding a free traditional hog roast for all participants to enjoy. To achieve the Guinness World Records title, there must be more than 100 cars in the parade.
Richard Morley, Lancaster Insurance’s operations director commented, ‘We’re proud of our long standing partnership with the MGOC and setting a brand new Guinness World Records title with the help of MG owners is exciting for us. We hope that MG owners will embrace this opportunity by coming down on the day and taking part in a piece of history in the making, whilst enjoying a great day’s racing.’
Richard Monk, MGOC’s managing director said, ‘We’re delighted to be helping Lancaster Insurance in its quest to become a Guinness World Records title holder. We’re united by a passion for MGs and are honoured to be part of this ‘once in a lifetime’ event.’
