CAFCNA GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS attempt info
« on: March 24, 2004, 09:09:46 AM »

I wrote Gunness World Records to find out how many AVs we need in a caravan in order to get into the record books.... So if anyone is planning a multi region GTG and thinks they can pull this off, here is the current record that we will have to beat, along with info regarding how to go about registering... Anyone think we can get beat the record?

Grey

The e-mail I recived from Gunness World Records is below.

Thank you for your enquiry regarding your intention to attempt the record for 'Largest parade of Chevrolet cars'.

We have attached our recommended guidelines for this attempt which provides you with all the details you require to make your attempt. You should ensure that all those participating are aware of the contents of these guidelines, and your attention is drawn to the authentication we require when you come to make your claim.

Our standard agreement form for record attempts is also enclosed and must be signed by yourself and any other individual who may contribute material as evidence (e.g. photos/videos).  This must be returned with the above documentation in order for us to consider your claim. Please ensure that your claim ID number (above) is clearly marked on your package and all documentation.

Once the record has been attempted and you have compiled your claim and completed the standard record agreement form, they should be sent to us here at:

,
338 EUSTON ROAD,
LONDON NW1 3BD,
UNITED KINGDOM

The current record is:
A parade of 2,223 Corvettes traveled from Springfield, Illinois to Athens, Illinois, USA and back on June 25, 1994.


However, you may wish to check with us again closer to submitting your full claim to be sure that a new record has not been set in the interim.

If you should require any further information, please do let us know, otherwise we hope that the event goes well and look forward to hearing the results.

Yours sincerely,



Scott Christie

 Wait! That's `Vette's, not Avalanches!  Do they limit it to any chevy vehicle and that's it?

...And the Av's were on the bridge roadway. Not a stretch of surface roadway...Didn't they see that?

I would think that we could get into the record book. Someone already did it with Chevy cars, now we can do it with chevy trucks. I think the biggest turnout of AVs this year so far will be the Niagara Falls GTG in June. All we need is another 2,200 members and we'll be set! ;D
If anyone tries to set something up, count me in. :1:

« Reply #16 on: March 24, 2004, 12:31:12 PM »

OK, let me get out my calculator:

2,224 Avalanches X 221.6 inches per Avalanche (IPA)= 492,838.4 Inches Of Avalanche (IOA)

492,838.4 IOA / 12 inches per foot = 41,069.9 Feet Of Avalanche (FOA)

This is equivalent to 7.78 Miles Of Avalanche (MOA) if they're bumper to bumper.

If the Avalanches were traveling at 40mph, and maintaining the prescribed one car-length of space between vehicles for every 10mph of speed, then the length of the Avalanche parade would be approximately 39 miles.

If all of the Avalanches had a full tank of gas (assuming that they're 1500's) then there would be 68,944 gallons of gasoline in their tanks at the start of the parade.

I think I have a little too much time on my hands today . . .

OK Dale:

Assuming that each Avalanche traveled at least the 39 miles that the entire parade would extend:

(2,224 Avalanches x 39 miles)/17mpg (estimated)=5,102 gallons of gasoline consumed during the Avalanche Parade.  This works out to 130 gallons consumed per mile and is also enough to fully fuel over 164 1500's on empty.

Please, don't ask me to compute the heat generated by all 8,896 disk brakes.

Great idea! But something that large would have to be done on a lightly traveled road, close to my house I hope, and end up in a well known destination eg: disneyland etc... for publicity reasons. I will fly a helicopter over the event, but I will need a volunteer to ride with me to take video/photos. Kinda' hard to fly one and take pics at the same time.
Can we make this a different record type such as suggested earlier, most trucks, most avalanches, most change for a buck, etc....
Are we serious about doing this. We could meet in AZ or Utah or CA or ?????

OK, let me get out my calculator:

2,224 Avalanches X 221.6 inches per Avalanche (IPA)= 492,838.4 Inches Of Avalanche (IOA)

492,838.4 IOA / 12 inches per foot = 41,069.9 Feet Of Avalanche (FOA)

This is equivalent to 7.78 Miles Of Avalanche (MOA) if they're bumper to bumper.

If the Avalanches were traveling at 40mph, and maintaining the prescribed one car-length of space between vehicles for every 10mph of speed, then the length of the Avalanche parade would be approximately 39 miles.

If all of the Avalanches had a full tank of gas (assuming that they're 1500's) then there would be 68,944 gallons of gasoline in their tanks at the start of the parade.

I think I have a little too much time on my hands today . . .
If we did this on the 7mile bridge in the florida Keys, that would be awesome from the sky!!!

Who wants to go there, is Illinois still a state?
We should sell it ;)

Well, assuming the average weight of the AV is 5,500 lbs ( I know it's not ), the total weight would be 12,232,000 lbs, distributed over 39 miles.

That's empty fuel tanks.
