Beaulieu Motor Museum is planning to set a new Guinness World record on the Early May Bank Holiday and are calling on the help of everyone to help them achieve it.

A New Forest attraction that is renowned for its stunning collection of iconic motor cars from past and present, Beaulieu offers a perfect day out for the whole family while staying in one of the New Forest holiday cottages nearby. With its flourishing relationship with the automotive industry, the Guinness World Record relates to cars – they are hoping to create the longest line of toy cars.

To surpass the previous record of 9,795 cars, which was set in Guatemala last December, Beaulieu is asking for donations of toy cars of all kinds. It doesn’t matter if they are cars, lorries, tractors, quad bikes or any other type of vehicle; the only requirement is that they are designed to be played with by hand and are not large enough for children to sit on.

More than 10,000 cars needed
Held in the grounds of the Beaulieu Estate, they will be looking to have a continuous line of at least 10,000 cars end-to-end, estimated to measure one kilometre long. After the record attempt, the toys included will be sold and all proceeds will be donated to Naomi House and Jacksplace hospices.

If you were planning on attending the event on 5 May during your country cottage breaks, why not bring along a toy car and join in with this great world record attempt? With Beaulieu offering half price admission for any children who bring two or more toy cars, it makes sense to put your favourite set of wheels in your pocket before heading to the attraction.
