Join us for an open day at J Davy in Basingstoke, Hampshire on Friday 1st July with celebrity guest Ben Collins, to celebrate the dealership’s warranty programme relaunch.  

Best known as ‘the man in the white suit’ following his eight year stint as The Stig from BBC’s Top Gear, Ben Collins set the benchmark of speed against which all other drivers challenged themselves. 

Having coached countless celebrities around the race track, organised high voltage car chases and tested hundreds of priceless vehicles, it’s fair to say that he’s earned his reputation as one of the world’s best drivers. 

On Friday 1st July, Ben will be attending J Davy in Basingstoke to promote J Davy’s new warranty packages – provided by us and which he endorses – that now come with all of their used vehicles. Doors open at 10.30am and he will be available for meet and greets, photo opportunities and autographs until 7pm.

To celebrate the event, J Davy are giving away a free two year warranty worth £549 with every used car purchased over that weekend – or a £1,000 discount on any brand new model. 

In addition, every driver will be offered a free vehicle health check inspection to prepare their current car for stress-free motoring this summer. 

There will also be a free barbecue, charity car wash and a raffle with lots of great prizes including a meat bundle worth £60, £100 Miller & Carter gift voucher, Meguiar’s Ultimate Paint Care Kit, cinema tickets for 4 people and personalised Ben Collins books signed by the man himself! 

All proceeds from the raffle are being donated to Spotlight UK – a wonderful charity that provides a range of free or low cost activities to disadvantaged children and young adults across Hampshire and Berkshire. Activities include after school clubs, holiday clubs, youth clubs, performing arts, arts & craft, sports and trips. They also offer 1-2-1 emotional and practical support.

Mark Foakes, J Davy’s General Manager, said: “We are over the moon to have Ben with us for the day. He’s not just an incredible driver but a superb personality too. We know visitors are going to love meeting him and hearing his fascinating racing stories. It’s definitely going to put J Davy on the map!”

Ben added, “J Davy is a fantastic dealer that always goes the extra mile for their customers. I’m really excited to be supporting their business with this event and of course helping to raise lots of money for such a worthy cause. It’s going to be great fun!”
