Glasgow’s First Stop Tyre & Exhaust garage has driven away with one of the biggest raffle prizes at the recent trade show, hosted by Autoparts UK and Autoparts Garage Equipment.
As part of the evening’s huge £15,000 prize draw bonanza, the garage won the use of a free Fiat 500 courtesy car for a year for their customers, fully liveried and supplied by Autoparts UK.
The event, which took place on 24th April at GTG Training Academy in Glasgow, welcomed hundreds of garage owners and mechanics through its doors, who over the course of the evening got the opportunity to see the most up to date equipment and parts available to the aftermarket from a raft of top-quality names including Bosch, Beissbarth, Febi, First Line, Gates, Hella Gutmann, Hofmann Megaplan, Launch, LUK Clutch, Matco Tools, NGK, Shaftec, Thermobile and TMD Friction.
Around 700 garage customers flocked to see the latest automotive, brands, parts, tools and equipment and network with some of the automotive industry’s key players, with over 50 exhibitors, featuring Garage Equipment & Workshop Essentials, Vehicle Components and Tooling, as well as live product demonstrations.
Sinclair Fraser, Director of First Stop Tyre & Exhaust said: “We’re extremely chuffed with winning such a fantastic prize, we will be putting the car to good use straight away! I’d like to thank Autoparts and AGE for a great evening, one that we shan’t forget.”
Craig McCracken, Group factor manager, said: “We’re delighted to hand over the keys to our lucky winner, which caps off a very successful trade show event. It was fantastic to see so many customers and new faces turn up on what was a very busy evening with a bit of fun thrown in.”
