National map to be created out of 1,700 cars

VOV.VN - A total of 1,700 cars will be used to make up a map of Vietnam at Doi Rong international tourist area in Do Son district of Hai Phong city on July 9.

The event, prepared by Otofun - the largest automobile community in Vietnam, is expected to set new records in terms of having the most puzzles by car and a parade featuring the most cars in the country.

This will mark the third time that Otofun has implemented a record-breaking programme using cars.

Previous records were set in 2011 with 135 cars, and again in 2016 with 480 cars and 35 motorbikes.

The current global record is 750 cars as recognised by the Guinness World Records.

Once shaping the national map is complete, a parachute will pull the national flag from the sky to allow all participants of 1,700 cars to join a national flag salute ceremony.

A wide range of activities will be held during the function, including a parade of 500 cars, an automobile race Gymkhana Otofun Championship, and a drift performance.
