Foxes to Drive New Citroën C1 for Guinness World Record
The New Citroën C1 and British singer-songwriter, Foxes, are taking on a Guninness World Record title attempt for the ‘most live concerts in 12 hours in multiple cities’.
All proceeds raised from the ticket sales will be donated to the charity Trekstock, who support young adults affected by cancer.
The Guiness World Record title attempt will see Foxes drive from C1TY TO C1TY in a Citroën C1, performing seven live concerts, at seven venues, in 12 hours.
The record attempt will take place across the South East of England on 27 May 2015.Tickets for each of the live gigs are on sale now and can be purchased at http://trekstock.com/foxes-c1ty-to-c1ty.
Starting in the city of Southampton where Foxes grew up, the tour will involve a 250 mile journey in a New Citroën C1. The route takes in Brighton, Guildford, Reading, Oxford and High Wycombe, ending with a grand finale in London at the House of Vans, Waterloo. Foxes will perform a 15 minute set at each venue, accompanied by support acts.
In addition to a fundraising target of £20,000 via ticket sales, Citroën will also gift the record attempt vehicle – a stylish C1 Airscape Flair VTi 68 S&S – to Trekstock to further boost the charity’s fundraising.
Louisa Rose Allen, who performs under the stage name Foxes said; “I’ve always thought it would be amazing to be a Guinness World Record title holder, so this opportunity was just too good to miss. The pressure is on though as I’m fitting in all the preparations for the record attempt around studio sessions. It’s really exciting, but of course the main aim is to raise money for Trekstock, which is a fantastic charity.”
Citroën and Trekstock’s collaboration with Foxes comes at an exciting time for the Grammy Award winning artist, who has recently started a course of intensive driving lessons, with help from Citroën, to get her up to speed ahead of the record attempt. Her second album will be released later in the year.
