COME RAIN AND SHINE, THE SILVER SSANGYONGS DELIVER AT SILVERSTONE31-07-2015
As the official courtesy car partner for this year’s Silverstone Classic (24-26 July), SsangYong supplied 50 cars to support the 25th anniversary with a three day VIP service.
Models from across the range – many in silver to accompany the track parade, included the all new Tivoli, Korando crossover, Korando Sports 1 tonne pick-up, Rexton 4x4 and Turismo MPV, and were kept busy ferrying VIPs, competitors, media and event organisers around the Silverstone circuit throughout the three day event.
The Silver Jubilee track parade on Sunday saw hundreds of silver cars touring the Grand Prix circuit to mark the 25-year anniversary, with 15 silver SsangYong cars at the lead.
“This was a great opportunity to showcase our range to this highly influential and well informed audience,” said Paul Williams, CEO of SsangYong Motor UK. “We and our dealers were delighted to support this exciting classic event at the home of the F1 British Grand Prix.
“SsangYong is Korea’s oldest vehicle manufacturer, and with a history stretching back over 60 years, our heritage perfectly complemented many of the cars competing on the track over the weekend,” he added.
"We were delighted that SsangYong was able to participate in this year's 25th anniversary event, delivering a fantastic service in luxury and comfort to our stakeholders, and the comments coming back from VIPs, competitors and guests about the cars and the drivers were extremely positive and complimentary,” said Nick Wigley, Event Director.
