Artline treats youngster to racing experience

Thanks to Artline's campaign to sponsor racing driver, a five-year-old boy from Derbyshire who shares the same name as the 16-year-old driver, George Sutton, won a racing day of his dreams.

Young George's dad, Martin Sutton, entered the competition on behalf of his son by uploading a video in answer to a national competition on social media. On the video, George told the brand why he wanted to win the tickets for him and his mum and dad. Thanks to George's passion for motor sports, in particular the Mini Challenge he caught the eye of the judges and went on to win. Artline was overwhelmed with entries and felt that the experience of complementary entry tickets and hospitality would certainly not be wasted on the young enthusiast.

Derek Evans, UK Sales and Marketing Manager said, "we were very excited to meet young George and are so pleased he enjoyed the day with his family. We have been working with racing driver George Sutton as part of our Artline 'Hero' project which celebrates a number of key products from our varied and versatile range. We certainly think that both George Suttons are #ArtlineHeroes in the making."

George's entry video can be viewed here.

He said, "it has been the best day ever. I have loved sitting in George's car. I even got to give George my poster I made him and he says he is going to take it everywhere. I can't wait to tell my friends at school."
