Avon Tyres names ‘Best of British’ trade winners

National Tyre staff Ted Midgley and Dan Taylor have been presented with their exclusive watches after they were named as the winners of Avon Tyres’ Best of British promotional campaign.
The campaign posters featured another legendary British firm’s product – an Aston Martin DBRS9 racing car that competes in Avon’s flagship motor racing series, the Avon Tyres British GT Championship. Likewise a motorcycle version showed the Triumph Thruxton – shod with the latest Avon Roadrider rubber.
Other versions featured Morgan’s Aeromax model and the iconic Caterham Superlight R500, both of which are supplied on Avon tyres.
Dealers from across the UK were encouraged to display the posters and invited to enter a draw for the prizes and it was the National Tyres Harrogate branch that triumphed.
At the prize presentation, made by Avon Tyres’ UK National Accounts Manager James Steventon, winner Ted Midgley said, “We were exceptionally pleased to support the sale of Avon Tyres. They provide excellent value and are just what customers want.”
Steventon said, “The Best of British promotion has been a great success; we are really pleased with all the feedback we have received from all our dealers and people who took part.”
