Jaguar Land Rover Heritage is supporting England's Coventry Transport Museum’s attempt to set a new world record for
the ‘largest parade of classic cars’ ever assembled, and is calling on classic Jaguar and Land Rover owners to register
their interest and take part in this momentous occasion, set to take place in the British city on Sunday, 14th June
Coventry Transport Museum, with insurance company partner Footman James, aims to break the record for the ‘Largest
Parade of Classic Cars’, which currently stands at 1,674 set in Mexico City in 2014. The goal is to attract up to 2,000
classic cars that are at least 30 years old, for the record to be officially ratified by Guinness World Records.
The record attempt is planned for the week before the Coventry Transport Museum’s official re-opening, and organisers
are encouraging classic car owners to get involved by registering to bring their vehicles on the day.
The route of the parade, which must measure at least two miles to meet Guinness World Record regulations, will start
at the Ricoh Arena and will include the city’s famous ring road. To qualify for the parade, each car must be at least 30
years old. Vehicle registration document copies will be required as proof of age.

Gary Hall, Chief Executive of Culture Coventry said: “We are thrilled that Jaguar Land Rover Heritage is supporting
us in this attempt to bring this World Record home to Coventry, the spiritual home of the British motor industry. There
couldn’t be a more fitting way to celebrate the re-launch of Coventry Transport Museum and Jaguar’s 80th birthday than to
bring classic cars from all over the country, to the city which designed, built and inspired so many gorgeous and
Coventry Transport Museum tells the story of the city’s unique transport heritage to almost half a million visitors
per year. The project is due to be completed in June 2015.
