NGK's latest BoxClever promotion winner


Date: 30-Apr-2018

Independent garage owner Nigel Chambers has won a fantastic VIP trip for two to the British Formula One Grand Prix – courtesy of ignition specialist NGK.

Nigel – who runs Hillheads Motor Engineers in Whitley Bay, Tyne & Wear – will attend the iconic F1 race at Silverstone on Sunday, July 8 after winning NGK’s latest BoxClever independent garage loyalty scheme promotion.

The trip, which is valued at £2800 and will include full hospitality in the drivers’ lounge, will be Nigel’s first-ever visit to an F1 race, a motorsport event that he has always wanted to attend.

The 46-year-old said: “It has always been on my ‘bucket list’. I even said that to someone a few days ago. Some of my mates have been, but I have only watched it on TV, so I’m really looking forward to it. I’ll now have to decide who I take with me.”

The F1 prize draw was the latest in a series of high-profile NGK promotions that has seen the company give away a fantastic £7000 Suzuki Celerio five-door hatchback city car, a monster 1000-piece Teng Tools kit cabinet, valued at £10,000, and 100,000 BoxClever points to three lucky members.

The leading supplier of original equipment (OE) spark plugs, glow plugs and NTK Lambda and other engine management sensors, plus ignition coils, offered the prize to the Boxclever member who was selected in a prize draw at the end of a three-month promotion.

The draw was open to all BoxClever members who following the purchase of NGK components were encouraged to collect the single boxes that the products come supplied in and return them in exchange for prize points. Every time a member banked boxes during the promotion they received an entry into the prize draw.

Nigel has been a BoxClever member for many years and fits NGK’s full range of components, which are mainly supplied by local motor factor CTS Car Parts.

He said: “We fit NGK spark plugs, glow plugs and Lambda sensors because they are invariably the original components. I have been a BoxClever member for years and always collect the boxes and it is brilliant to have won such a great prize.”

Nigel has worked in the motor trade since he was aged 16, and now runs the four-bay workshop in Hotspur Avenue, assisted by technician Ryan Glynn.

He said the business, which was started by his father Robert nearly 40 years ago, carries out service and repair work on all makes of vehicle.

Outside of work, Nigel, who is married to Michelle and has seven children and three grand-children, is a keen caravanner, an interest he shares with his father.

The current BoxClever promotion is giving members the chance to enjoy a full day’s driving experience at PalmerSport’s renowned Bedford Autodrome.

The thrilling day out will be won by a Boxclever member who is selected in a prize draw at the end of a promotion which started on April 1 this year and runs until the end of June 2018.

The lucky winner will drive six cars at PalmerSport; a Formula 3000, Renault Clio Cup Racer, BMW M4 GTP, Ariel Atom 3, Palmer JP-LM and a Land Rover Defender.

Full hospitality including breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea will also be included for the winner, who must redeem their prize before mid-December 2018, and for an accompanying non-driving friend.
