An ensemble of 1,077 Ford Everest sports utility vehicles (SUVs) made its way to the Subic Bay International Airport (SBIA) over the weekend in a convoy to highlight an important milestone. Ford Everest Club Philippines (FECP), a mid-size SUV club with 15,000 active members and one of the largest and most active car clubs in the country, succeeded in its attempt to smash the Guinness World Record for the “Largest Car Horn Ensemble”.
“Today, Ford Everest Club Philippines not only created an awe-inspiring symphony of horns, but also brought excitement along with the unique experience that came with it. I am thrilled and delighted to have witnessed and become a part of this event,” said Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) Chairman and Administrator Jonathan D. Tan during the awarding ceremony at the SBIA tarmac.
An estimated crowd of 5,000 club members, their families, organizers, sponsors and spectators took part in the event, visitor arrivals peaked before, during, and after the event. Tan also shared that the attempt kicked off at the New Clark City Aquatics Center where the 1,077 Ford Everest SUVs simultaneously blew their horns to the tune of “Philippine Jeepney/Let’s Go” for a duration of one minute and six seconds, before heading off to Subic Bay Freeport where the certificate was awarded to the FECP by the Guinness World Records Official Adjudicator. The MINI Club of Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA held the former record of the Largest Car Horn Ensemble in August 2013.
