On the 4th September 2016, an attempt was made on the World Record for the 'Most Triumph Motorcycles in a Parade'. Guinness World Records have now confirmed that a new World Record of 539 Triumph motorcycles was set by Staffordshire Triumph.
The attempt took place in Mansfield (UK) and donations were made to the Jessica Simpkin HELP Charity. The attempt beats the previous World Record set in 2015, also held by Staffordshire Triumph, of 362.
"Most were post-1990 products of Triumph Motorcycles in Hinckley, but there were a number of machines made at Triumph Engineering's factory at Meriden near Coventry prior to 1984. There was also a 1937 machine, which would have been produced at Triumph Engineering's pre-war plant in Coventry. One Triumph had a sidecar attached and three had been converted to tricycle format," said witness Mick Duckworth.
