The procession was led by a third-generation MX-5 (NC) race car, driven by Dutch television presenter Allard Kalff and with Mazda’s European boss Jeff Guyton in the passenger seat.
Later on, after the successful record attempt, Guyton received the official Guinness World Records certificate from adjudicator Pravin Patel.
At the end of the day, about 250 cars still present joined to form a large drive-in cinema. Prior to the showing, the viewers were asked to pick from three films. The owners cast their vote by blowing their horn to indicate their preferred film. The loudest ‘vote’ was cast for Arbitrage with Richard Gere in the starring role.
Note, Mazda’s MX-5 is already in the record books for being the world’s most popular sports car. It first achieved the record back in 2000 when total sales reached 531,890 cumulative units, and with the launch of the fourth-generation MX-5 (ND) next year we could see the one million mark finally surpassed.
