Khun Dan Prakarnchon Dam, NAKHON NAYOK, 8 August 2009 – A non-stop Rock and Hip Hop outdoor music concert started from 14:00 on the Saturday afternoon right up until 03:00 in the wee hours of Sunday morning with Bands and Musicians entertaining the crowd amongst them namely the Art Floor, Blackhead, Buddha Bless, Causeway Bay, Clash, Flure, Hangman, J Jetrin, Joey Boy, Noi Pru, Paradox, Silly Fool, Slot Machine, The Paper, and The Sun.
But the highlight is not just the outdoor concert but the attempt to be inscribed as the “Largest Parade of Automatic Motorcycles” into the “Guinness Book of World Records” with about 2,474 one-make Yamaha FINO automatic scooters lining up on top of the 2.5 kilometre Khun Dan Prakarnchon Dam. A feat as huge as the longest concrete dam in the world, which the Khun Dan Prakarnchon Dam holds.
The whole district of Sarika precisely and Nakhon Nayok Province were overwhelmed with the Yamaha FINO automatic motorcycles with organisers saying that more than 13,000 have registered with the various clubs and dealers to descend down to the event. The FINO phenomenon has swept the young who are owners of this lifestyle motorcycle. Food were arranged to feed the participants, music played non-stop while the helicopter hovers above for that great opportunity of a great photo-shoot, and the police force to keep order and until the end of the event nothing untoward happened.
Finally at 17:30, it was announced by the official from the Guinness World Records that the feat was achieved bettering the previous record of 1,500 motorcycles. It was a great achievement despite the gloom economic climate at the moment. This record will stay for quite a considerable time.
