Toys line up for new world record

Toys line up for new world record

The world's longest ever line of toy cars has been laid out at Hampshire's National Motor Museum.

The New Forest exhibition comprehensively beat the previous record of 14,310 cars - assembling a line of 24,189 laid end to end, stretching around the grounds running for 1,910 metres.

The toys are to be sold at the museum's Autojumble event in aid of the Naomi House Hospice.

Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason and former racing champion Sir Stirling Moss were among the big names who kindly donated to the successful world record bid.

The last two toys in the line were the British Land Speed Record cars Thrust SSC and Bloodhound SSC - signed respectively by Wing Commander Andy Green, and Richard Noble, both having been involved in the World Land Speed Record.
