Lookers Plc has raised more than £15,000 for the Prince’s Trust charity at an exclusive driving event.
The event, which took place 26-27 May at the Croft Circuit in Yorkshire, gave Lookers clients the chance to get behind the wheel of some of the world’s most iconic vehicles including Ferrari, Maserati and Aston Martin.
There was also track and off-road vehicles and guests could try their hand at stunts with world record holder and seven-time British Motorsport Champion, Paul Swift.
The event was in memory of John Walls - a leading businessman in the North East and member of the Prince’s Trust Committee. Speaking about his legacy, Lookers Managing Director Nigel McMinn said John was a great influencer who never took no for an answer.
“The Lookers PLC Supercar event was a chance for us to remember Walls and the amazing work he undertook for the Prince’s Trust to give young people a better start in life. We are thrilled to have raised funds in his memory and hope this will ensure continuation of the work he did with the Prince’s Trust.”
Following the driving experiences, guest speakers included former Top Gear “Stig” and James Bond stunt double Ben Collins and Johnny Mowlem a professional British racing driver who is considered to be among the world's elite sports car drivers.
