Silverstone Classic has set a new world record for the largest parade of McLaren Cars. It took place at last summer’s event and has recently been officially ratified by the adjudicators at Guinness World Records. This is an amazing achievement that the organisers and car owners can be proud of.

The procession marked what would have been McLaren founder, Bruce McLaren’s, 80th birthday. Organised by the McLaren Owners Group, the parade saw a total of 115 McLaren supercars take to the famous Silverstone Grand Prix circuit on Sunday, 30th July 2017, to set a new benchmark.

This isn’t the first time that a Guinness World Record has been set at the Silverstone Classic event. Back in 2011, they clinched one for the biggest-ever parade of Jaguar cars. So, it’s safe to say that when it comes to big car demonstrations they know what they’re doing.
