(20 August, 2020) 2020 is certainly looking up for Caravan and Motorhome Club member / South Yorkshire resident Mr Neville Darlow, as he is the lucky winner of a brand new top specification previous generation SsangYong Korando worth £26,000.
After shielding for four months, Mr Darlow and his family visited their local SsangYong dealership in Rotherham to pick up the 4x4 earlier this week. The keys were presented to them by Caravan and Motorhome Club ambassador and Great British Bake Off contestant Karen Wright and SsangYong UK Marketing & Communications Director Stephen Gray.
The Caravan and Motorhome Club and SsangYong launched the competition at the Caravan, Camping & Motorhome Show at Birmingham NEC in February and they received thousands of entries.
Mr Darlow said: “It was absolutely fantastic news to find out that I had won the SsangYong Korando competition. I still can't believe how lucky I have been. I took the Korando for a drive locally with my family and it was absolutely spot on. I am sure this lovely prize will provide many years of enjoyable motoring.”
Karen Wright added: “What a smashing family the winners of the car were. Loads in common with them, hope I bump into them on site somewhere.”
SsangYong UK Marketing & Communications Director Stephen Gray echoed the positive thoughts saying: “SsangYong are delighted to have worked with the Caravan and Motorhome Club in this competition that recognises the success of the outgoing Korando in Caravan and Motorhome Club Towcar of the Year Awards and with members. Mr Darlow was a worthy winner who was delighted with his new SUV driving off with a big grin and cheery wave and we wish him many years of happy motoring in his SsangYong!”
Harvey Alexander, Director of Marketing and Membership Services at the Caravan and Motorhome Club, added: “We are so pleased to have been able to brighten up Mr Darlow’s year with this excellent prize. The Korando is a great option for touring and we hope he and his family enjoy many years of driving it around the UK and visiting our campsites.”
SsangYong is a specialist 4x4, SUV and MPV producer with over 65 years of experience that has created a range of tough, good looking and capable vehicles, all of which are at the top of the class when it comes to towing. SsangYong is a well-known brand to keen caravanners and having worked with the Caravan and Motorhome Club for many years SsangYong have gained a great understanding of member requirements. The Korando has previously won two awards in the Caravan and Motorhome Club’s Towcar of the Year awards - the first was in 2014 (under £16,000 category) and the second was in 2018 (under £24,000 category).
As limited stock remains of the previous generation Korando, SsangYong are offering up to £3,000 off and members of the Caravan and Motorhome Club receive a free towbar and electrics giving members even more value for money. Find out more at www.camc.com/ssangyong
