JCT600 hosts customer VIP day at the BTCC

Time 3:52 pm, July 15, 2016

JCT600 VEHICLE Leasing Solutions recently invited some of its key customers to enjoy a VIP day at the sixth British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) race of the season, held at Croft Circuit near Darlington.

JCT600, one of the largest privately-owned motor groups in the UK, sponsors Sam Tordoff and the JCT600 with GardX team.

Hosted in the West Surrey Racing VIP area, the day included access to the working grid and pits as well as opportunities to meet the drivers.

JCT600 customer, Russell Cook from Kaefer, said: ‘We had a brilliant day and the access we had was unbelievable.

‘We particularly enjoyed watching the race with the pit mechanics and meeting the BMW drivers for a question-and-answer session, which was fascinating, especially since all the drivers raced brilliantly on the day.’

Sam Tordoff still works at his family’s Bradford-based JCT600 car retailer business and is following in the footsteps of his rally driving grandfather Jack Tordoff, who competed professionally in the 1960s and ’70s.

Paul Walters, sales director at JCT600 Vehicle Leasing Solutions, added: ‘This was a fantastic opportunity for our customers to join us in supporting Sam’s BTCC journey on his home track in North Yorkshire.

‘We plan to host another VIP customer day at Rockingham, Europe’s fastest racing circuit, in August, and judging by the positive reaction from our customers this time, it looks set to be a regular event for us.’
