Surprise Tyre Prize for Early-Bird Motoring Fan

As the countdown to this year’s Silverstone Festival continues, one lucky motoring fan has been pleasantly surprised by winning a set of four high-performance tyres from Yokohama, the official tyre partner of the event.

Hertfordshire resident, Jerry Andrews, was one of the thousands of people who were quick off the mark to book their tickets for this year’s Festival, which runs from 25 – 27 August at Silverstone circuit. As an early-bird ticket buyer, Jerry was automatically entered into a prize draw for one of the event’s ‘Golden Tickets’. With his name successfully drawn at random, Jerry has secured a set of four tyres 20” tyres from Yokohama to fit onto his Chrysler 300 SRT-Design estate.

On being notified of his prize win, Jerry said, “Wow! This is such great news. As someone who never wins anything this is such a pleasant surprise. I was already looking forward to the event in the summer, but knowing that I’ll be able to turn up on a fresh set of Yokohama tyres will make it extra special.”

Yokohama has been the official tyre partner of the event since 2018, showcasing its range of competition, high-performance road, and off-road tyres to hundreds of thousands of motoring fans during that time.

Commenting on the upcoming event, Peter Fairlie, chief executive of Yokohama UK, said, “Our congratulations go to Jerry on his prize win. I’m sure he is looking forward to the event almost as much as we are. It always proves to be a fantastic weekend where we have the opportunity to meet and mingle with so many motoring fans. Of course, this year’s event will be a much wider celebration of motoring and motorsport so it will add another dimension alongside the traditional classic and on-track action. It really will be one of the highlights of the summer for us and I would encourage anyone with an interest to book their tickets soon to ensure they don’t miss out.”
