Nick Mason offers one: Longest line of toy cars in the world at 24,189
Beaulieu, National Motor Museum yesterday wrote on Facebook, “The cars have been counted and we are very pleased to announce that the final total is 24,189! Thank you very much to everyone that helped us achieve this world record.” The record in question was an attempt on May 5th for the Longest Line of Toy Cars ever.
Toy cars have flooded into collection points at 21 Sainsbury’s supermarkets across the south coast as well as Naomi House charity shops and many schools. Once the record has been set, they will be sold to raise money for Naomi House and Jacksplace hospices. Two children from Naomi House will lay the final cars to set the world record and complete the car line-up. Quentin Willson signed his record car.
The world record to beat was of 14,310 cars set in Füssen, Germany last year. Andy Ollerenshaw, from Beaulieu’s Events team, said, “There is still a chance to have your toy car included in the world record attempt and to help make history.
“It will be an exciting event to come and watch on the day and children who bring two or more toy cars on May 5 will get half-price admission to Beaulieu. To qualify, donated cars can be of any type designed to be played with by hand including cars, lorries, tractors and quad bikes but not large enough to sit on.”
