Slideshow: Dunsfold Wings and Wheels record attempt for line of toy cars

Air cadets from Horsham and the South Downs helped beat a world record on Tuesday (August 14) as part of a promotion for the forthcoming Dunsfold Wings and Wheels Airshow on Bank Holiday Sunday and Monday August 26 and 27.

Teenagers from the 1015 Horsham Air Training Corps and the 2426 Storrington squad were part of a team laying out hundreds of toy cars in a line along the BBC Top Gear track at the airfield.

The idea was the beat the existing Guinness World Record of 237 metres and this was easily done with 258.2 metres of tiny motors.

The cadets were joined by members of the public and spent a couple of hours lining up the cars, making sure there were no gaps between them.

Our slideshow is of the record attempt, along with some of the attractions laid on for the airshow promotional launch.
