Big Thunder competition winners..

Posted on by James Faulkner

When Mitsubishi and Talk Sport Radio wanted an extra-special prize for five petrol-head winners of a week-long competition – plus their 15 guests – they didn’t have to think twice.  With Mitsubishi’s long-standing links with Bruntingthorpe, there was only one prize to pick – a Big Thunder day with the added bonus of motoring and TV celebrities, Mike Brewer and Tony Jardine, joining the fun.

Each of the five competition winners brought three guests to the action-packed event staged over Bruntingthorpe’s impressive facilities including off-road tracks, kart circuits and high-speed handling courses.  At the end of the event, all 20 unanimously voted it the most exhilarating day of their life!

With each winner and their guests forming a team, the non-stop day of action embraced some of Bruntingthorpe’s most spectacular test tracks and vehicles including:

  • nail-biting trips round Bruntingthorpe’s challenging off-road course in Mitsubishi’s latest L200 pick-up trucks – vehicles used by Bruntingthorpe itself to demonstrate the extensive 4×4 track

  • spine-tingling rides in Mitsubishi’s fantastic Evo 4×4 sports saloon
  • the thrills Lewis Hamilton experienced before moving into single-seaters and F1 by taking part in kart races, and
  • driving Bruntingthorpe’s wind-in-the-hair Aerial Atoms – two-seat, open-top, sports cars that boast one of the highest power-to-weight ratios available.

Tony Jardine’s verdict on the day came in one word: “Fantastic!”
