MINI Sets Guinness Record

Follow Marty

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

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

The parade was organized 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!”--Richard Yarrow
