FPS Sails to Victory in Sunsail Automotive Challenge Cup 2016

On 16th June, FPS battled it out on the water against the very best from the automotive industry to take home the Sunsail Automotive Challenge Cup trophy.

The regatta saw 28 teams race around the Solent to raise money for BEN. Their success relied on how well they worked together as a group, proving not only to be a fun day out but also a fantastic team building exercise.

Our Managing Director, Neil Davis, and 6 other FPS employees were joined aboard the spinnaker by a trained skipper and first mate. It was a tightly fought race, with a fantastic effort from both Volvo and Hendy Group giving us a run for our money. However, our team preserved to achieve a 6 point victory.

Steve Dean, franchise director from Lookers Audi Division said: “The annual Automotive Challenge Cup event was fabulous. It has grown significantly year-on-year. I would expect next year’s event to be oversubscribed so reserve your place quickly. We had a great couple of days and we are looking forward to supporting this very worthy event in the future.”

This was all in the name of charity, with the event raising money for BEN. This brilliant not-for-profit organisation is dedicated to those who work or have worked, in the automotive industry and their families.
