Postby mallorr on Fri May 16, 2008 8:47 pm

Hi,

Could it be a good idea to place details on the Front Page of the Forum so its in peoples face , Eye Catching i realy mean.

that's right mate. there is a few posts saying that the Evo club are going for the record and so are the subaru club, they will only set records for Mitsubishi and Subaru respectively. GWR will only allow a record to be set for specific marques, eg. Vauxhall and as yet no record for Vauxhall has been set.

TVR had over 500 last year but it does not affect us

So am i right in thinking then that if anyone on here has a cav , Astra ETC they could join in and it would count for the total of vauxhall vehicles for the record ...

its not just Fronteras that count or am i missing something :roll:

Just to clarify the gwr attempt is definatley for frontera's, Ian may have said vauxhall in his posting but i think he was pointing out what others were doing, and as we are fronty owners its going to be a fronty gwr !

Re: GWR Attempt, What is the Record

Postby bobbinsjob on Mon May 26, 2008 2:33 pm

here is the definative answer.................

The record that we will be setting is "Longest Parade of Same Marque Vehicles (Vauxhall)" so in theory, yes a Vauxhall Cavalier would count in the total regardless of where abouts in the parade it is. However, we are the Frontera Owners Group and would like to set the record with Fronteras not any old Vauxhall. At the very least I would only want to stretch it to Vauxhall 4x4's ie. Fronteras, Montys, Bravas and Antaras :sick: and before anyone suggests it, not the Cavalier 4x4.

The evo club will be setting the record for Mitsubishi and i know for a fact that there will not be any shoguns or starions involved because they are the Evo club, therefor it will just be Lancers going round.

I hope this clears up any uncertainties.

Ian
