Avon Tyres has named Ipswich resident, Stacey Biltcliffe, as the winner of its competition to win a TVR Tamora.
The thunderously-powerful British sportscar is a modern day classic among enthusiasts and Mrs Biltcliffe was the lucky winner of the vehicle in Avon Tyre’s biggest free prize draw to date.
The British tyre brand, which originally supplied OE fitment tyres for the TVR Tamora, gave away the 330bhp, 3.6-litre car in its competition open to any customer purchasing a set of four Avon tyres.
Avon supported the promotion in dealers with point of sale materials including posters and leaflets, and via its promotional website, www.avontyrespromotion.com.
Mrs Biltcliffe, who bought her set of Avons from National Tyres in Ipswich, commented, “I’d always said to the family that I’d treat myself to a sportscar when the kids were older and that’s exactly what has happened, but not in the way I thought it might.“I first found out I’d won while in the passenger seat of a colleague’s car – I’m glad I wasn’t driving, as I nearly leapt from my seat.”
The high-performance TVR was presented to Mrs Biltcliffe at Silverstone on Sunday 15 August, during the Avon Tyres British GT Championship event. Ten runners-up in the promotion each received a TomTom XL IQ sat nav system.
Cooper Tire Europe managing director, Julian Baldwin, said, “There’s a great synergy between the Avon Tyres and TVR brands – both of us are proud British makers of quality performance products. In the past, TVR has been ably represented in the British GT Championship with amazing cars, like the Speed 6 and the Cerbera Speed 12.
