miniline.jpgThe good folks at Seven Cities MINI and Hampton Roads Club MINI are at it again. This time, they mean to not only break the record for longest line of MINIs, then intend to shatter it! Their goal this year is to get 500 MINIs, end-to-end and driving in a straight line by Guiness rules to get into the record book.

Lanexa VA on Saturday July 26, 2008 is where you want to be. The proceeds of this year’s
event will again be donated to the Naval Special Warfare Foundation to benefit
the families of fallen Navy SEALs.

This year’s event will run from 9am until midnight with the Guinness World Record attempt taking place at 2pm. Full details and information below.

>Seven Cities MINI and Hampton Roads Club MINI, along with support from neighboring Mini/MINI clubs in North Carolina, Washington DC and Pennsylvania, will be hosting another attempt at the Guinness World Record for the most MINIs / Minis in a parade in Lanexa Virginia at the Rockahock Campground. Our Official Guinness claim number is 208356. This year, to raise the bar so our fellow MINI enthusiasts from across the pond can’t take it from us, we are going to try for 500 cars so we need your support! All proceeds from this event will be donated to the Naval Special Warfare Foundation in support of the families of fallen Navy SEALs.

> This will be an all-day event starting at 9am and running through midnight! The parade will begin at 2pm. There will be food, beer, live bands, children’s activities, vendors, competitions and car shows. If you still aren’t certain that you would like to attend, please keep in mind that the Williamsburg Pottery Factory, Colonial
Williamsburg, Jamestown Settlement, Busch Gardens and several Outlet Malls are within easy driving distance of Rockahock. Why not make a weekend of it?

> We have made a deal with the Ramada Inn at 6493 Richmond Road in Williamsburg. Their telephone number is (757) 565-1111. The Ramada Inn is the closest accommodations to Rockahock Campground at 14.6 miles away. We have secured a special rate of $49 per night. You have to register before June 26 2008 to secure that rate so make your reservations now! You can also camp at Rockahock or reserve a cabin or yurt!

> More details will be posted on the 2008 Guinness World Record Attempt event board on North American Motoring and Seven Cities MINI messageboards as they become available. Come and be a part of something really big and help out the families of our fallen SEALs!
