John Beard and the team at Hyundai Stockport originally struck up a partnership with Halfords back in April of this year. John helped the team from Halfords purchase two new i40 vehicles to be used by their Mechanics crew team. When the cars were first collected they were yet to be made up with the Halfords colours, but we were promised some great pictures once they were.
John and the rest of the team at Hyundai Stockport were delighted to receive some pictures of the vehicles being used at The Mitie London Revolution event which took place in May. This is the largest multi-day sportive within the UK where riders of all abilities take on an iconic 185 mile loop around the Capital of England.
“Working with the Halfords team was a pleasure, from the initial conversations to the handing over of the cars. What made dealing with them all the sweeter was the end results as seen from the cars now, I was told the Hyundai i40 was the best car for the company colours but I never expected them to look as good as they do."
The team were also really happy to hear from Halfords themselves about how the cars are benefitting their team and why they choice to purchase from Hyundai Stockport.
"The Halfords Mechanics Crew, provide mechanical support for cycle events ranging from 50 to 15,000 participants. We cover Corporate events, Sportives and Charity rides across the whole of Europe. Our Team Cars have a highly visible presence as they follow riders throughout the route and respond to roadside mechanicals. Over the years we have leased various vehicles for Team Car duties but as our business has grown it now made commercial sense to purchase two new vehicles outright. Having leased a Hyundai i40 for the last two seasons we had little hesitation as we know that the i40 is a great fit being spacious, comfortable and well equipped. The Hyundai's certainly grab plenty of attention looking every bit the part. Our thanks to Vantage Motor Group and John Beard who helped to ensure we got the perfect cars for the job."
Our relationship with Halfords has been a really positive one thus far and both parties are hoping this will extend out much further into the future. John and the Stockport Hyundai team are looking forward to receiving more pictures and stories from the use of the i40 vehicles.
