Here's the World Record Report for Most F1 Cars in a Race!

Thanks to everyone who took part and helped with organisation.

This was a lot of fun to do and we challenge other tracks around the world to put even more F1 cars in a race! Beat the record and let us know and we'll publish it on our website!

Almost 12 months to the day since the record was set we have received an official certificate from Guinness recognising the record.

Thanks again to all of the sponsors that made it possible; MaxAmps - F1 Paintlabs (now F1 RC LAB) - Metro Hobbies - LRP, to the independent witnesses who donated their time, to the TFTR track who hosted the attempt and to Guinness World Records.

Default It's more of a Lipo record

Battery capacity should be regulated. Record attempts will get broken just by merely having larger batteries. Capacity should be the same for all record attempts.

But anyways! Awesome record. I use to drive my Tamiya grasshopper around the block on my bike back in the day. It would only do one block but it was a large one.
