Spanish car manufacturer SEAT organised a record-breaking event to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the SEAT 600 with dedicated fans of the classic vehicle.
Last weekend during a day of festivities at Circuit de Catalunya in Montmelo, Barcelona, Spain, the company invited guests to take part in the Largest parade of SEAT cars.
Hundreds of people turned up for the challenge, but some of the rules were broken during the first attempt which meant it was disqualified. For example, the gaps between the cars in the parade were too large.
However, the determined SEAT 600 owners were not discouraged and decided to attempt the title again, with heavy rain adding to the difficulty of the challenge.
Afterwards, Guinness World Records adjudicator Victor Fenes was thrilled to confirm that a total of 787 people successfully broke the previous record of 344, achieved by seatmeeting.com e.V. in Germany, back in 2016.
The Guinness World Records guidelines for this title state that any model from the SEAT brand is accepted in the parade, but the organisers decided to break the record using solely the SEAT 600 classic car, since the iconic vehicle went out of production in 1973.
Addressing the guests and record participants after collecting the official certificate, SEAT Chairman, Luca de Meo said: "The 600 is a deeply-rooted part of Spain's history, a vehicle that provided the impetus for the country's motorisation during an important period of development. With its manufacture, SEAT became one of the cornerstones of Spanish industry, as it is today."
