World Record Attempt - GDSF 2013
The world record was broken for constructing a road and running over it with 102 steam rollers, the previous record being 32.
102 steam rollers took part in the world record attempt as part of the Great Dorset Steam Fair 2013 Roller Special, on a brand new road created in the road making section at the event. This smashed the previous record of 32 rollers from 31st August 2003, which was also held at the Great Dorset Steam Fair.
The world record attempt has been officially acknowledged by Guinness World Records Ltd and one of the independent witnesses was Colin Tyson of Old Glory Magazine, a well respected figure in the steam industry.
Great Dorset Steam Fair Managing Director Martin Oliver, said: “We are so privileged to be in the presence of so many beautiful engines and to have broken the world record is just phenomenal. I would like to personally thank everyone involved as well as all our visitors, without whom we could never have achieved this triumph.”
