if I could have wished for any car in my garage then this MGB would have been it.
(PRWEB UK) 17 October 2012
Almost 12 months ago Lancaster Insurance, a niche classic car insurance arranger, launched their prize draw at the Classic Motor Show at the NEC Birmingham. During this time over 25,000 people excitedily entered the prize draw for a chance to win the stunning MG Owners Club (MGOC) refurbished MGB, either by quote or renewing their policy with Lancaster. The MGB also became a celebrity itself being test driven by some of the biggest classic car magazines in the country, Classic Car Weekly, Practical Classics and MG Enthusiast, as well as attending plenty of popular classic car events across the country.
Their jubilant winner is David Blake from Manchester. He is a long standing customer with Lancaster Insurance and has had his own MGB insured with them since 1994. David was thrilled to discover he was the winner ‘I could not believe my luck!’‘I had always loved driving my old MGB and if I could have wished for any car in my garage then this MGB would have been it.’
Lancaster finally handed the keys over to Mr Blake at the MGB50th at Blenheim Palace, on a wet and windy Sunday last month, surrounded by press, the MGOC Directors and plenty of eager MGB owners. Mr Blake said about the event ‘I could not stop smiling last weekend when I received the keys, and although the weather was lousy, the drive back home was great.’ Being a fan of the MGB since his youth he wasn’t at all fazed by the weather.
Winning the car has reignited David Blake’s passion for MGB’s and has said he intends ‘to take the car to a few shows and will probably drop in and see the Lancaster and MGOC at the NEC later this year’ at the Classic Motor Show where it all began.
A spokesperson from Lancaster Insurance has said they are ‘Very happy that the MGB has gone to a good home where it will be well used and looked after, and it is even better that it has gone to an MG Enthusiast. We are looking forward to hearing some updates in the future.’
