true, but the record does say Parade of bmw cars and if you read it it says "A total of 107 BMW coupé cars took part in a parade organised...". Im guessing bimmerfest doesn't count since all the cars were parked at the event.

back when bimmerfest did the official road rallies, it definitely beat them. there just wasn't an official there from the guiness book of world records.

they stopped doing the road rallies because it just got too big and safety was a big concern. iirc, 2005 was the last year.
