Formula Brands helps hospital staff in record breaking charity event

Friday, November 19 2010

Brands Hatch supported a group of fundraisers from St George's Hospital in Hornchurch, Essex today (Friday) in their successful attempt to set a new world record.

Volunteers gathered at the hospital to raise money for Children in Need by assembling the largest group of people to simultaneously clean and polish a race car.

For their record attempt, MotorSport Vision provided a Formula Brands single seater used for its RaceMaster driving experiences.

The Guinness Book of Records rules stated that everyone taking part needed to polish the car for minimum of one minute, with each person touching the car at the same time. St George's Hospital managed to achieve this with 85 participants, smashing the previous record of 69 set by Barcelona Trade Centre staff.

"We are all extremely happy that we've been able to break the world record whilst raising money for needy children," said event organiser Ellen Henriques. "I would like to thank everyone who has donated money and those who have been involved in making today happen."

The successful record attempt raised more than £460 for Children in Need.
