  Largest car mosaic-world record set by Subaru enthusiasts
 BANBURY, England -- 1086 Subaru owners have celebrated the life of Colin McRae by creating  a sign almost half a mile long and made up of 1086 Subarus spelling out COLIN MCRAE and setting the world record for the  Largest car mosaic.

 A second world record was set for the largest parade of cars as the Subarus left from the Prodrive test track

 Colin McRae was the first Briton to win the World Rally Championship Driver's title and helped the Prodrive-led Subaru factory rally team win three straight WRC Constructors' titles. He was killed in a helicopter crash in September 2007.

Nine hours and 300 miles later, it arrived at Prodrive’s headquarters in Banbury, having been cheered along the way by thousands of fans who stood on every available motorway bridge on route.

 “Literally every bridge had people waving and cheering us along with many hanging the Saltire from the railings.” said Grant Hendry, who led the McRae Gathering convoy. “It turned what was an already memorable event into a truly amazing and emotional occasion.

  In a fitting finale to the event, a sign almost half a mile long and made up of 1086 Subarus spelt out COLIN MCRAE and the Scottish Saltire in a new official World Record for the Largest car mosaic– smashing the previous record by more than 800 cars.

   The cars then broke a second World Record by creating the largest parade of cars as they left the Prodrive test track.

  It is estimated that the event has raised nearly £40,000 ($103,000) for the McRae charities.
