NORTH WEST GIRL WINS TEST DRIVE WITH RUGBY
STAR TOMMY BOWE
A girl from the North West of the province has won a once in a lifetime test drive experience with Ireland and Ulster Rugby star Tommy Bowe in the all new sporty SEAT Leon which has arrived at the Donnelly Motor Group.
The Donnelly Group, Northern Ireland’s largest independent new and used vehicle dealership, announced that Hannah McCollum from Londonderry was the winner of their Facebook competition winning the very first test drive in the vehicle which arrived at the Donnelly Group’s Dungannon site this week.
Hannah was chosen at random from the extensive entry list, to experience a test drive with Tommy Bowe in the striking new SEAT Leon, which has been hailed as ‘the car that thinks of everything’.
Having been driven through the country roads of County Tyrone by the rugby superstar, Hannah got behind the wheel to test the vehicle, which reaches 62mph in an impressive 7.5 seconds, herself.
On return to the Donnelly SEAT showroom in Dungannon, Hannah said:
“I’m so happy that I won one of the very first SEAT Leon test drives in Northern Ireland.
“I had entered the competition via the Donnelly Group’s Facebook page and was completely shocked to win. I was in a lecture when I missed the call to me that I had won – thankfully they called me again and I was able to answer when I came out of the lecture!
“I’m a big rugby fan so meeting Tommy Bowe was amazing. I’m sure it’s every girl’s dream!
“He showed me all the special features of the car such as the lane assist, tiredness recognition and the drive profiles which allow the driver to vary aspects of the vehicle such as engine sound and the lighting inside the vehicle.
“I really want to thank Tommy and the Donnelly Group for selecting me as their winner and allowing me to experience what will certainly be a once in a lifetime opportunity!”
Raymond Donnelly, Sales Director at the Donnelly Group, said:
“I want to say a big congratulations to Hannah for winning the competition. I’m delighted she made the journey to our Donnelly SEAT showroom in Dungannon to not only meet Tommy Bowe, but also to experience the all new SEAT Leon.
“Hannah drove the super sporty FR version of the vehicle and was certainly impressed with its power and endless list of futuristic features, all aimed at enhancing the driving experience.
“The new Leon has been redesigned from the ground up and is a real pleasure to drive. It has been described as ‘bold, powerful and agile with all the makings of a natural athlete’, so who better to put it through its paces than rugby star Tommy Bowe?
“Tommy experienced the Leon as driver and as a passenger and agreed that a test drive is necessary to really feel the power, character and performance of the vehicle.
“However, not only is the drive of the vehicle impressive – so is the value! Although there is an extensive range of additional extras, these will not be necessary for all motorists.
“Our experienced sales teams in the Dungannon showroom would be more than happy to not only take motorists on test drives, but to advise on the correct vehicle specifications based on a customer’s preferences, requirements and budget.”
To celebrate the arrival of the vehicle, which is available in three versions – The S, SE and the super sporty FR – to their Dungannon showroom, the Donnelly Group has announced a tempting launch offer.
Mr Donnelly continued:
“We are offering customers who order before the 31st March 2013 a specially designed Tech Pack at an unmissable price.
“Donnelly customers can add the Tech Pack, which includes full LED highlights, navigation system and DAB radio, to their new Leon SE or FR for just £500.”
The new Leon also boasts lower emissions and fuel consumption than ever before with the 1.6 TDI CR 105 PS engine emitting only 99 CO2 g/km of emissions and a fuel consumption of 74.3 mpg (combined).
Test drives are available in all 3 versions of the new Leon from the Donnelly SEAT showroom on Moy Road in Dungannon.
