Adam Brayton, 28, from Keswick, was more than happy to make the 182-mile round trip to take delivery of his brand new Ford Mustang 2.3-litre EcoBoost Fastback at the Jennings Ford dealership, based on Cargo Fleet Lane.

Adam, who finished second in the British national series in 2017, 18th in the World Cup Series (a world series consisting of seven races), and 13th in the World Championships, might be used to conquering steep, rough terrain, not to mention jumps, drops, rock gardens and any other obstacles for that matter, but the professional downhill mountain biker has always dreamed of owning a Ford Mustang.

Adam said; “I’ve always had a passion for the Ford Mustang, I just had to find the specific model I wanted and a reputable motor dealer who I could trust to deliver the goods.

“I’m delighted with the car as well as the extremely high level of customer service I’ve received from the dedicated team at Jennings.  They’ve been extremely professional from the first point of contact and throughout the entire purchasing process.”

Colin Massey, general sales manager at the Middlesbrough dealership, presented Adam with the key to his brand new powerful and dynamic Ford Mustang motor.

Colin said; “It was an absolute pleasure dealing with Adam.  I don’t think we’ve ever sold a car to a professional downhill mountain biker.  He is extremely passionate about the sport, and placing 13th in the World Champions, is a phenomenal achievement.

“On behalf of Jennings Ford, I would like to wish Adam many more years of success, as well as many years of happy motoring in his new Ford Mustang.”    

The ultra-modern Ford Mustang Fastback model offers a long bonnet flowing downwards to reduce drag, distinctive headlamp and rear light designs, along with other signature features, in addition to the latest technologies. 

Standard specification includes 19” alloy wheels, a performance brake package, xenon headlights, LED tail-lights and a rear diffuser.  The interior gets dual-zone climate control and Ford’s latest SYNC2 infotainment system with nine speakers and an 8” screen.

In addition to selling the entire new Ford model line-up, the Middlesbrough-based dealership also provides a range of aftersales facilities to customers, including service, MOT, accident repair and parts.
