Mark scoops one L of a prize
Posted on 18 Apr 2006
Winning a brand new motor has fuelled a youngster's ambition to pass his driving test.
Mark Wilkes, 17, from Fishburn in Stockton, was informed that he had won a SEAT Ibiza 1.9TDi Cupra after entering a competition in Max Power Magazine.
Readers were given the opportunity to win the Ibiza Cupra TDi Diesel by going to the magazine's website and answering a simple question
"I was over the moon when I received the phone call," said Mark. "Initially, I was quite calm, but as soon as I put the phone down and it started to register, I was overwhelmed with absolute joy and excitement. It's the best thing that's ever happened to me."
The news couldn't have come at a better time for Mark who has recently embarked on an Apprenticeship as a bricklayer with Sedgefield Borough Council and is relying on passing his test, which will enable him to get to and from work.
The presentation took place at Jennings SEAT in Middlesbrough, where franchise manager, Dave Eland, handed the key to Mark.
"It's great to see someone so young with so much ambition and determination to succeed. I would like to wish Mark all the very best in the future, in addition to many years of happy motoring in his new SEAT," said Dave.comments powered by
