The Heritage Motor Centre is delighted to announce that CONVOY for HEROES 2011 has beaten the Guinness World Record for the longest Land Rover convoy.  The convoy took place at the Heritage Motor Centre on Sunday 24 April featuring 348 Land Rovers and raising £15,000 for Help for Heroes.

The previous world record was set at Towcester race-course in 2004 by a parade of 260 Land Rovers.  Next year’s event will be held at Prestwold Hall in Leicestershire over the Easter weekend (7 and 8 April) and the organisers are hoping to attract 1,000 Land Rovers and raise even more money for the charity.

Organiser Patrick Stoner said:  “We are absolutely delighted with this result and quietly confident of smashing our own record next year.  The beauty of Convoy is that it attracted not only the dedicated Series and Defender enthusiasts but also drivers of high-end vehicles such as Discovery 4s and late-model Range Rovers.  Next year we are hoping to attract at least one Evoque – and in fact we are offering a modest prize to the driver of the first Evoque to sign up!”

CONVOY FOR HEROES 2012 promises to be bigger and better than ever.  For the latest information on the event keep visiting the website, www.convoy4heroes.org.uk
