World record for largest Land Rover convoy confirmed!
640-vehicle convoy at Billing Off-Road Show is confirmed as an official world record by Guinness World Records
Guinness World Records has confirmed that the attempt to assemble the largest ever parade of Land Rover and Range Rover vehicles by the Billing Off-Road Show was successful – with an officially-recognised 640 vehicles taking part.
The parade was to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Land Rover, with the idea to bring the record home, and beat the 632-vehicle benchmark set recently in Bad Kissingen, Germany.
‘Land Rover turns 70 in 2018 and we wanted to do something really special to celebrate this milestone. What could be better than setting a World Record in your own Land Rover for the Largest Parade of Land Rovers?’ said Sarah Arrowsmith, organiser of the Billing Off Road Show.

To ensure the record attempt was considered official, participating vehicles were required to keep within two car lengths of one another, with the parade exceeding two miles in length and all drivers refraining from taking toilet breaks during the record attempt. Each vehicle had to display a Land Rover badge to qualify, with owners of eligible vehicles encouraged to join in and take part.
The parade was organised by Billing Off Road Show in conjunction with Land Rover Monthly magazine. More details about the World Record attempt can be found on the Guinness World Records website.

The Staride featured the 5 stud JAP engine cradled in a hand built Erskine frame, and was a classic and minimalist design that all speedway bikes adhere to, even to this day. This lovely example has a name pla
The most collectable Triumph TR, the short-lived TR5 was a happy accident resulting from Triumph's failure to ready the tooling for the new TR6 body in time. Yet combining the pretty TR4A body with the lusty 150bhp 2. 5-litre fuel injected six cylinder engine for just one year created what for many is the ultimate TR. The combination of their low production numbers (just 1161 UK RHD made) and th
Its ultra-aggressive appearance may at first elicit a "get out of the way" response should you see this 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca edition on the road, but immediately thereafter, you'll almost certainly want to move in closer for a good look. It's an attention getter for sure and, considering there were only about 750 of its kind made in the first place, not only do you not
The BMW M3 is a legend, no two ways about it. And while there were purists who were upset with BMW for putting a V8 engine in their legendary sports sedan, it turns out that it made for one heck of a car. This 2010 BMW M3 sedan delivers the kind of thrills you used to have to buy a 2-seat supercar to enjoy, while maintaining its daily-driver demeanor. Talk about having your cake and eati
