New World Record Attempt
« on: July 06, 2016, 06:19:56 pm »
Some of us were part of a world record for the 'Largest Parade of Triumph Motorcycles' which stands at 362 motorcycles and was a great achievement.
 
In January there was an unsuccessful attempt to break the record in Australia and they are attempting this again in August. They have decided to make another attempt to smash the record and keep it in England, and to do this attempt in aid of the 'Jessica Simpkin HELP' campaign for Children's Brain Tumour Research.
 
The attempt will take place on Sunday 4th September from 11am in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, and they are asking all participants to donate £5 to the charity.  More information at: http://staffordshirebikeshow.co.uk/worldrecord/.

That sounds pretty cool... We should be able to get a good collection of Trophys together and get a record within a record!

Please publicize the vent to other Triumph riders

Obviously we want a good Trophy presence, but we are keen to share this event with all Triumphs!!! :047:

Haven't heard yet how many were there but hundreds and hundreds of Triumphs. Great sight. Fair few Trophies, including some from the 1990s, in British Racing Green - jealous of the colour! Few Rocket based trikes and even one with a sidecar :002:

the unofficial number at the moment is 688 Triumphs,
It was a great feeling to be amongst them all and it put our little attempt at the old record of 362 to shame.
The organisation was on an epic level and very well done, refreshments were a bit overstretched, shame there was not and event to go to after, everyone split up and went different ways.
It will take a couple of weeks to get verified by Guiness as a record but it does set rather an awesome target for anyone to chase.

Cheers,  Mike.
