Lucky star sees Chris win a car

The Weekend Post - Motoring - - NEWS - ALI­CIA NALLY

A CROWD of al­most 3000 de­scended on Westco Mo­tors’ Mul­grave Rd deal­er­ship last Satur­day keen to be named the lucky win­ner of a new Mazda2 or Volk­swa­gen Polo.

For three weeks, Cairns lo­cals had the op­por­tu­nity through Star FM to track down the ve­hi­cles and put their de­tails on a star which was stuck to ei­ther car.

Chris Thomp­son’s lucky star helped him drive away in a new red Volk­swa­gen an hour af­ter his name was an­nounced.

Westco Mo­tors mar­ket­ing man­ager Christina Flood said fig­ures from the three-day sale held over the same week­end were “out­stand­ing”.

Westco dealer prin­ci­pal Chris King said: “We were once again blown away by the level of sup­port we re­ceived by Cairns lo­cals, turn­ing out in their thou­sands to win a new car.

“It was the sec­ond year we’ve given a car away and to be hon­est we thought last year was big, but this one def­i­nitely topped it with nearly 3,000 peo­ple at the deal­er­ship for the big draw.

“Def­i­nitely a huge suc­cess for our deal­er­ship all round.”

Fam­i­lies packed the mo­tor deal­er­ship and took ad­van­tage of a bar­be­cue and jump­ing cas­tles and other ac­tiv­i­ties for the kids.
