Well after getting fobbed of by GWR i constantly sent emails to various departments about the confirmationof of our previous world record attempt low and behold recieved this email today
Dear MICK JONES,

Thank you for your email.

We apologise for the delayed response.

Due to an administration error, your sent evidence was never logged as "received" in our system.

I have located the documents and approved your claim just now.

This is to confirm that you have set the new Guinness World Record for Largest parade of Toyota cars.

A certificate to commemorate this has been sent out to your address and should arrive shortly.

Congratulations to your achievement!

Yours sincerely,

Kristian Teufel

well done to all concerend
This is for WRA2 Mike, when i originally set up the record because they already had a world record set by the mr2s in the Netherlands we had to change it to largest parade of toyotas,why don't ask me we have a record and thats the main thing :yahoo:

No Jim its a wind up lol :rolleyes: read the email they sent me :quote We apologise for the delayed response.

But as you say they could have responded to messages left and previous emails but it least it will make all the doubters ashamed.
