We’re delighted to announce the winners of our two competitions that we ran during the Cholmondeley Pageant of Power with Rick Parfitt Jnr’s help. We had over 300 entries, it was great to see so much enthusiasm for our sports cars!

For the Raffle Ticket Draw, we put all of the tickets into a race helmet and our CEO drew the four winning tickets out. We made sure all the winners had also liked us on Facebook, which ensured their eligibility to win.

Each of these lucky winners will receive one of the four remote-controlled Supercars on show at the Pageant of Power, we’ll contact them directly to arrange delivery.

Now, on to the main event. We had a huge amount of interest in the Balloon Competition, with around 300+ people having a guess. The winning guess would win a free day’s hire in their choice of the amazing Nissan GT-R R35 or stylish Jaguar F-Type. If more than one person correctly guessed the number of balloons, we would put all the correct guesses into a hat and draw a winner.

We invited Rick Parfitt Jnr, the British GT4 2013 Champion, over to our stand on Sunday afternoon, and gave him the great honour of popping all the balloons in the car. He enthusiastically took to his role, and soon every balloon was at his mercy.

Once all balloons were popped, we hunted for all the knotted ends – they were all over the place! We totted them all up for our winning number.

Drumroll please. The grand total for the number of balloons in our Nissan GT-R was: 67

We had 12 people that correctly guessed this number, so we randomly plucked a name out of the hat to give us our overall winner – Andrew from Stoke. We shall be contacting Andrew today to arrange his free day’s hire of a sports car!

The runners-up that also correctly guessed the number of balloons will be awarded a useful extra if they hire one of our cars.

Thanks once again to everyone that visited our stand and chatted to us at the Pageant. We had an awesome time and we hope to see you all again next year.

Check out this video we took of Rick hunting down and popping every balloon. They never stood a chance!
