GoPro helped me get a world record (with some friends)

I'm sure i've mentioned i'm a big Volvo fan, & on 31/3/19 we attempted to break the Guiness world record for the most Volvo's in a convoy. The previous record was 570, our confirmed number was 1574. We're still waiting for Guiness to verify it, but all the footage we've supplied to them was done using my GoPro's (3 set on a 2mile circuit)

not actually my footage

Congrats, unbelievable, so much Volvos on the same place- how could you manage the space problem?
If the cars driving in a row they need more than 10 km.

we hired Bruntinthorpe proving ground for the day, which is an ex-airfield so had a nice long straight. The main "follow me" duties were done by 5 Volvo ex-Police cars (still in livery & got blue lights) with a team of 30 other Volvo "safety car" leading smaller groups. Everyone had walkie talkies & we had people placed at different positions around the track. I wasn't actually in the convoy, i was on the organisers team in charge of 5 drone operators (& the GoPro's)

The start of the convoy did actually catch up with the end before they had started moving, but everyone got a full lap in which we hope all that counts. The confirmation footage was 1hr 10minutes long lol

The main Volvo group behind the attempt last one of its founder to cancer last year, which is why the big turn out in his name (his ashes were in one of the Volvo's on the day), & we've almost raised £17k for charity from the event

Watched the beginning and the end, looks majestic and I missed the sound or even music.

i didn't realise they were going to get so close to my camera tho, bit of a surprise when I watched it back. That was a quick video put together to confirm the numbers to Guinness, the person counting was too close to the camera so could hear her conversations which is why I simply removed the sound
