Update revisions to the Guidance on 6th April 2021 have meant some delays to our planning for the attempt. It is highly likely the attempt can proceed on 20th June as a track venue based sporting event. no spectators will be permitted and all participants will be required to remain in their vehicle whilst on site.

The latest information about this event is now on the main club web site

A further update will be in the April edition  of Soft Top Hard Top.


Covid secure facilities and refreshments will be on site, but it is recommended that participants make a comfort and refreshment stop in nearby facilities.

Back in 2019 we attempted to go for the largest parade of Mazdas World Record to bring the title back to the UK. While we came so very, very close, sad to say that only a small number of drivers let the whole attempt down, especially where everyone had worked so hard, including everyone who closed the gap.
But taking all of the learnings from that attempt, working with all the restrictions we may face and with newly updated World Record attempt guidelines, we plan to make a return to Elvington Airfield on June 20th and make you all world record holders.

Pre-registration will be online and will launch ASAP during 2021, and while there will need to be a registration fee for the attempt, members will be sent a welcome and participant pack in advance, helping to speed entry and on the day record registration. Pre-registration will also help us with all that will be required for ordering in  facilities you’ll be pleased to hear, (there are no world records for queuing, but if there were we would have broken at least one).
