Lucky star sees Chris win a car
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.
