The Yamaha R1 and R6 Owners Club GB will be attempting to break the Guinness World Record for 'Largest Parade of Yamaha Motorcycles' on Sunday 27th June 2010 - and they want your help. 

The club would like to invite all owners of Yamaha R series bikes to attend, so that the record that has stood since July 2003 can be broken. This includes owners of R1, R7, R6 or R125 models, of any year.   

The record currently stands at 206 bikes is held by the TDM owners club of Italy.

The record attempt will be taking place at Supercar Sunday incorporating Superbikes, hosted by Gaydon Heritage Motor Centre, Gaydon, Warwickshire (CV35 0BJ).

There will be loads to see - including Yamaha’s very own stunt rider Dave Coates abusing his YZF-R1 - and the ticket price includes free entry to the Gaydon Motor Museum.

Prices are £7 in advance (contact the owners club or visit Gaydon’s website) or £11 on the day.
