Massive Parade Of Ferraris Works At World Record

A huge, never-ending line of Ferraris sounds like a dream that any car fan has had before. It's about to become a reality, though, as Ferrari North Europe prepares to create the world's longest Ferrari parade. While creating a parade of a Ferraris is a valuable proposition on its own, the group will be attempting to get itself recognized by Guiness.

Ferrari North Europe already has 600 cars registered, more than enough to beat the current record of 490. However, it won't be making the official attempt until September and is hoping to get an even 1,000 cars on board. It will be making the attempt at Ferrari Racing Days at the Silverstone Circuit in the U.K. (September 15 - 16).

Ferrari North Europe previously set the world record with a 385-car parade at the same event in 2007. The following spring, however, Ferrari North Europe was eclipsed by a 490-car parade put together by Cornes & Company Limited, a motor vehicle distributor in Japan, at the Fuji Speedway Circuit, Shizuoka, Japan. Ferrari North Europe hopes to get it back in a few weeks.

If a bunch of wealthy sports car owners getting together to set a meaningless world record sounds a little indulgent, we should note that Ferrari plans to donate 5 pounds to BEN for every car that participates. BEN is a U.K. automotive industry charity designed to help current and former industry employees with all types of life issues.

The effort has seen support from the Ferrari Club and individual owners throughout the U.K. and other parts of the world. It will presumably include all makes and years of Ferraris and should be quite interesting to behold. In addition, Ferrari Racing Days will include a schedule of races and will be the only event in the U.K. to see the appearance of the FXX and 599XX development cars on track.

The record attempt will take place on September 15 at 6:00 p.m.
