Driving experience dream is soon to become a reality for motorsport crazy, Andrew Mitchell

A motorsport enthusiast has won a dream prize, courtesy of Jennings SEAT, part of the multi-award winning Jennings Motor Group.

Despite Joanne Boots, 40, from Darlington, being the lucky winner of an ultimate driving experience at Croft race circuit in North Yorkshire, she has decided to donate the prize to her motorsport mad partner, Andrew Mitchell, 40.

Joanne said: “It’s always been a dream of Andrew’s to experience the thrills and spills of race driving on a circuit and thanks to Jennings SEAT, he is now looking forward to that dream soon becoming a reality.”

The prize came about when Joanne, who has been a British Touring Car Championship enthusiast for the past 21 years, filled in her details at Jennings SEAT’s promotional stand at Croft earlier this year.

Joanne went on to say: “I couldn’t believe it when I found out I had won the driving experience voucher, I knew straight away that I would be giving it to Andrew.  Needless to say, he is absolutely delighted and he feels like Christmas has come early!”

Initially a follower of Formula 1, Andrew’s enthusiasm for BTCC began eight years ago. 

A presentation took place at Jennings SEAT’s Cargo Fleet Lane dealership in Middlesbrough, where sales controller, Mike Scurr, handed the official driving experience voucher to the happy couple.

Sales controller, Mike said: “It was an absolute pleasure presenting the voucher to Joanne and Andrew.  I’m sure Andrew will thoroughly enjoy every minute of the driving experience on the 2.1 mile circuit at Croft, especially as it has always been a lifelong dream of his.” 

Dedicated to following the sport, the duo have set themselves an interesting challenge, which involves visiting every race circuit in the country.  To date, the couple only have five venues left on the list to visit, including Donnington, Thruxton, Snetterton, Knockhill and Rockingham.

The Jennings SEAT dealership in Middlesbrough sells the entire range of new car models, including the Mii, Ibiza, Ibiza ST, Ibiza CUPRA, Toledo, Leon SC, Leon ST, Leon X-PERIENCE, Leon CUPRA and Alhambra, in addition to the manufacturer’s very first SUV – the new Ateca.
