John Holland SLS AMG takes centre stage at CarFest North

Our company supercar took centre stage at a major prestige, performance and luxury car festival held in aid of a national children’s charity.

The John Holland Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, complete with branding from our friends at Kettle Black and Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, was proudly displayed by our partners, Supercar Driver, in their paddock at CarFest North, held in aid of BBC Children in Need.

The event, which was hosted by world-famous BBC DJ and presenter, Chris Evans, took place at Bolesworth Estate in Cheshire, a 250-mile round trip for our company supercar, and featured unique, fun-filled car-related events and activities as well as music from artists such as the Kaiser Chiefs, The Vamps, Busted, Rick Astley and Sophie-Ellis Bexter.

The SLS AMG was also paraded by Supercar Driver in front of huge crowds at the event as part of a special ‘Car-Nival’ convoy display, showing off our business and company partners to thousands of car enthusiasts.

Our managing director, Mark Holland, said: “It was great to see our company supercar displayed in front of thousands of supercar enthusiasts at CarFest North, many thanks to our good friends at Supercar Driver for taking it along as part of their display.

“Events like these are unique and bring so many like-minded people together, so it was brilliant for us to be a part of it.”

Adam Thorby, director of Supercar Driver, said: “CarFest North was a great event held in aid of a fantastic charity – BBC Children in Need.

“Some of the supercars on show, both by our members and by others, were spectacular. The carnival was a great aspect of the event, too, and music from artists such as the Kaiser Chiefs really topped everything off. We’ll certainly be back next year!”
