Fleet drivers given con­test chal­lenge

Yorkshire Post - Motoring - - NEWS -

THERE are not many perks to be­ing be­hind the steer­ing wheel on UK roads all day ev­ery day but this surely is one of them – the chance to put the Lexus 4.8 litre V10 LFA su­per car through its paces at Sil­ver­stone.

That is the prize await­ing the win­ner of the fleet driver of the year com­pe­ti­tion. By way of con­so­la­tion, the run­ner-up will be given a ride round the fa­mous track in the £350,000 su­per car but as a pas­sen­ger with a pro show­ing what the LFA can do around Sil­ver­stone’s in­ter­na­tion­ally renowned three mile cir­cuit – 0-62mph in 3.7 sec­onds and on to a top speed of 202mph.

The com­pe­ti­tion, which is spon­sored by Toy­ota and Lexus Fleet Ser­vices, has been or­gan­ised by ALD Au­to­mo­tive in con­junc­tion with train­ing spe­cial­ists, Peak Per­for­mance, and has at­tracted en­tries from all over the UK.

“This will be an amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for the win­ner of the fleet driver of the year com­pe­ti­tion and the run­nerup is not for­got­ten as well,” said Fleet World man­ag­ing ed­i­tor Ross Durkin.
