Off-road muster attracts more than 500

Waving the chequered flag at the Lancelin off-road muster world record attempt was a thrill for Pearce MHR Christian Porter.

MORE than 500 vehicles registered to attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest convoy of off-road vehicles.

The record of 154 vehicles was set in Doha, Qatar in 2014.

Pearce MHR Christian Porter said the Lancelin off-road muster on Saturday, October 15, which was a sell-out, was a fantastic display of community spirit.

“I was thrilled to be a part of the day and kick off the convoy by waving the chequered flag,’’ he said.

“Well done to the Lancelin District Community Association for making the event possible – it was without a doubt the best event I’ve seen in my electorate, and probably the state, over the past decade.”

Mr Porter said organisers believed the Guinness verification process could take some weeks but were confident they had the necessary supporting information for Lancelin to become the home of a new Guinness World Record.

“It’s great to see the community come together and I can’t wait to hear the official news that the previous Guinness World Record was smashed.’’

Four-hundred and forty-eight vehicles, which needed to stay within two car lengths of each other, completed the course.
