Why the event is called VOLVO600?
Guinness World Records (GWR), have confirmed that a record for the largest parade of Volvo cars had been set in September 2010 in Poland on the border between Katowice and Chorzow.
The count of cars was officially recorded at 570 cars, with independent witnesses ensuring a constant flow of cars and spaces between cars was maintained.
To better the record, the UK team will need to gather and parade 571 Volvo cars, however, with 571 cars being an odd number to remember, the team agreed that a more rounded number was needed for participants to remember, hence VOLVO600 was confirmed as the event name.
The location of Bruntingthorpe in the UK, has been chosen as the venue to attempt the record and is large enough and allows for a much greater number of cars to be assembled and paraded with a safe operating limit of 5,000 cars and 10,000 people.
