  Largest sounding trumpet - Hyundai South Africa sets world record
   CAPE TOWN, South Africa -- Hyundai South Africa has unveiled a sound trompet measuring 114.82 feet (35 meters) in length and 18.04 feet (5.5 meters) in diameter, which has been installed on the Cape Town unfinished highway and sets the new world record for the Largest sounding trumpet (Largest Vuvuzela).

  The previous Guinness world record for the Largest sounding trumpet was 32 meters.

   The Largest sounding trumpet in The World (World's Largest Vuvuzela) has been created as part of Hyundai's national "Gees" campaign and is aimed at encouraging South African's to come together and "bring the Gees" in celebration of the world's greatest sporting event to hit South Africa, the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

    The highway, which is en-route to the Green Point Stadium, has become a symbolic landmark in the City of Cape Town. It is perfectly positioned amongst some of the city's major attractions.

   "The construction started close to three months ago," says CEO of Hyundai South Africa, Alan Ross. "The structure had to be built a section at a time and each will have to be transported separately to the site for the final installation which took two days to finish."

   "This project is truly about bringing people from all walks of life, together to celebrate the game of soccer. There is certainly no better way to do this other than using an icon that is a true and unique representation of the game in our country".

   "It is the ideal platform to use to contribute to the excitement around this historic event we welcome the world to our country in a true South African way," said Ross.
