It’s not often we get press releases regarding winners and it did make us think that wouldn’t it be great if more companies made the effort. Any thanks to the folks over at First Car we can tell you about their recent car competition winner. Find our more below and a big congrats to the winner. The lucky winner of the recent FirstCar ‘win a car’ competition was 17-year-old Katie Lewis from Hillingdon, near Heathrow. Out of the 61,717 entrants who entered the competition over the past year, she was the randomly selected winner. Katie was handed the keys to her brand new Corsa on Friday, 18th August by Laura-Jane Pohlmann, Head of Marketing at our competition sponsor, ingenie.
I Am Shocked
Katie has yet to pass her test but has been having lessons since March. Katie said “I am shocked and overwhelmed to have won the car. I love the colour and all the technology and I can’t wait to drive it.” A special thanks to our kind sponsors ingenie, the young driver insurance specialist, who as an added bonus also included an annual insurance policy, letting her drive the Vauxhall Corsa 1.4i 75PS ecoFLEX Energy 3dr, worth £13,425, away with her mum. ingenie’s Laura, who helped make Katie’s driving dreams come true, said: “As someone who drove a battered Peugeot 206 for the first five years, it’s lovely to help one young driver into a car that’s got all the latest tech and safety features. We’re really excited to welcome Katie to the ingenie community.”
