On Tuesday 21 October, an air of anticipation settled over our dealerships as we prepared for the Group 1 event of the year: the lucky draw for two to the stunning Belle Mare Plage golf resort in Mauritius coupled with the new X-Trail reveal. The event was streamed live from the Group 1 Nissan head office in Kuils River to Group 1 branches across the country. This was the first of four draws, the rest of which will be taking place in the coming months – to put yourself in the running for the next draw of this stunning prize, entries can still be done online. Share it with your friends, and tell your local golf club, because this is one fantastic prize to win!
We saw an exceptional turnout at all dealerships with guests greeted with delicious platters of sushi and snacks. La Couronne wine was being offered to guests who could try anything from the Sauvignon Blanc and Rose, to the Pinotage and Malbec. Eldorette Carinus from La Couronne also enlightened people about La Couronne’s history and wines.
Then came the speeches with Group 1 MD, Marcel Swanepoel and Dealer Principal, Lance St. Clair introducing the prizes. A shot at spending a week on the greens in beautiful Mauritius wasn’t the only prize up for grabs. There were a host of other goodies which many happy guests walked away with including complimentary tickets to various golf estates, cases of Ernie Els and La Couronne wines and various golf clothing hampers (including Swagg, Pro Shop and TaylorMade) as well as something sweet in the form of a Mantelli’s hamper.
The brand new 2015 Nissan X-Trail was introduced with some video footage, giving guests a taste of what to expect from its performance. The unveiling then began with smoke and coloured lights, and as the curtain was drawn off the X-Trail, the guests got their first look at the adventurous new crossover. Overall most people were very impressed with the X-Trail’s new look and feel, calling it ‘elegant’, ‘sporty’ and ‘stylish’. People who test drove the car said it offered one of the most comfortable, quiet and refined rides that they have experienced in a crossover.
The lucky winner who will be going to Mauritius is Candice Abrahams pictured above with her colleague, Mikaela. Congratulations, Candice, Belle Mare Plage golf resort is absolutely stunning, so please give us a running account on Facebook!
