MINI's Blackpool Parade to enter Guinness Book of World Records

On Wednesday 28th of March 2007, 269 MINI illuminated Blackpool, Great Britain, and set a new Guinness World Record for the longest MINI convoy in the world. Owners travelled from as far as Croydon and Cardiff to be part of the historic two-mile route and help raise cash for Comic Relief.

The official Guinness rules for a parade are that all cars must complete a minimum two-mile route in an unbroken line, less than ten metres between each other and cross the finish line.

The record was previously held by the Vancouver MINI club when in 2004 they brought together 195 new and Classic MINI.

The parade was organised by MINI dealership Derek Woodman. James Rashid, MINI Brand Manager at the dealership, said: "We really wanted to do something for Comic Relief this year and the 'longest MINI convoy ever' seemed to fit the theme of 'The Big One'. We never imagined it would become this big! Hearty congratulations to my team for pulling it off and thanks to all the MINI owners for making it happen!"
