A world record for the largest parade of MGs has been set in Corby.

The parade took place on Saturday, April 11, at the Rockingham race circuit, where 144 MG owners and lovers united to take part in a world first.

The parade took ‘pole position’ on the Oval Track, the UK’s only banked Oval and Europe’s fastest motor racing circuit, with an array of classic and modern MGs in attendance.

An official Guinness World Records adjudicator oversaw the attempt, confirming on the day that a new record had been set.

Lancaster Insurance’s operations director Richard Morley said: “We’re immensely proud to have set a brand new world record with the help of MG enthusiasts from all over the country!

“This would not have been possible without the support of the MG community.

“We are thrilled to have created a piece of history as a group.”

Guinness World Record adjudicator Sam Mason said: “I’m delighted to be able to announce that Lancaster Insurance is now the official world record title holder for the ‘Largest parade of MGs’.

“A great number of participants turned up on the day and it was a terrific event to be a part of.”

The tremendous occasion was then capped off with a celebratory free traditional hog roast for all participants to enjoy.
