Imagine being part of a Guinness World Record attempt and getting a ride in a super stretch limousine at the same time – well, now you can with the help of limousine hire firms from across the country. Party-goers are being urged to contact their local limousine hire company and encourage them to take part in a unique record breaking event and raise much needed money for charity at the same time. For the first time, the limousine industry is holding an event in Blackpool which can only be described as ‘A golden mile of limousines’, as more than two hundred stretched limousines are expected to descend on the famous Blackpool attraction in a unique record attempt. Supported by European Limousine News, the magnificent convoy which will be over a mile long, will congregate at the Blackpool strip on Monday 8th October 2007. Officials from The Guinness Book of World Records will be there to witness the attempt which is expected to be awarded the ‘World Record Limousine Convoy.’


The event will see a wide variety of limousines leaving from a large number of major towns and cities and head for Blackpool in time for the attempt at 20:15. All limousines and their passengers will be welcomed by the Mayor Robert Wynne as they cross the line on the Blackpool Strip. A large section of the Golden Mile will be closed off to cater for the record attempt.

Those wishing to take part and be a passenger in the ‘Golden mile of limousines’, are being encouraged to contact their local limousine hire firms to see if they are taking part, and if not, encourage them to do so. The limousine operator will decide the cost of the journey from your town, but a minimum of £25 is expected from each passenger.

Half of the money raised during this event will be donated to the Mayors charity and the remaining will be given to the limousine owners charity of their choice. More than £40,000 is expected to be raised during the one day event.

Sir Jimmy Savile will also be supporting the record attempt which is already being labeled as one of the largest gathering of stretched limousines in the world. The world’s first stretched Ferrari limousine will be leading the convoy which will also see a host of celebrities taking part.

Local businesses, limousine operators and those who wish to travel in the vehicles are being invited to take part and sponsor the limousines, arrange a corporate day-out with their colleagues, or simply a fun night out with their friends.
