We recenlty held one of our most exciting motor events marking the launch of Skoda’s exciting new Superb Estate with a VIP open night, that saw the dealership jam packed with both Skoda, Subaru and Isuzu customers! Established back in 1973, we were known as the region’s largest Skoda dealer. Even though tough times fell upon the industry during the credit crunch, we were busy expanding, adding Subaru and Isuzu into the fold, so the open night was an ideal opportunity to mark the opening of the new showroom. The event got underway with County Durham born rally driver Guy Wilks - Skoda UK Motorsport’s new exciting rally prospect, opening the proceedings speaking to customers about Skoda’s Intercontinental Rally Challenge.
It was a terrific evening,we met lots of new faces, along with many familiar ones too! Many people came to see the new Skoda Superb Estate, but we also featured many new exciting models for the event including, the new Subaru Impreza TDi, the new Legacy and Outback, plus the popular Skoda Yeti and Octavia VRS.’
It was also great having Guy Wilks here representing Skoda UK’s Intercontinental Rally Challenge. Guy really is an exciting prospect for Skoda motorsport and you can be sure that Derek Slack Motors will be supporting him all the way!
Subaru UK also did their bit, to support the evenings entertainment with the delivery of a fully deckled Subaru Impreza police vehicle. Music was provided by local live Jazz act, ‘After Eight Jazz’.The evening climaxed with some exciting prizes and giveaways, drawn by Guy Wilks. ‘We are all really pleased with the huge turn out for the event. The weather forecast was poor with snow falling earlier during the day, but it didn’t deter our loyal customers, and we’re already busy planning out next event.
