Comline competition winner hits the track

One of the lucky winners of the Comline Champion competition, held by Comline Auto Parts at Automechanika Birmingham 2017, recently claimed his prize of an unforgettable supercar and rally car driving experience.

Radek Kozakiewicz, a technician at JJ Motors in Nottingham, was randomly selected as the winner of this experience back in June after striking a pose to enter the competition. He, along with many other entrants, shared a photo of himself via Instagram atop the Comline Champions podium using the #ComlineChampion competition hashtag.

The Champions podium and a showcase of the Comline-liveried, Bob Fowden Motorsport Subaru Impreza S11 rally car, was a major attraction and a focal point of Comline’s heavy presence at the international exhibition.

Radek’s name was drawn alongside one other winner, and his prize was the opportunity to drive, not only the Subaru Impreza STI, but also some of the fastest and most luxurious supercars on the planet, namely the Aston Martin Vantage, Audi R8, Ferrari California, Nissan GTR and Lamborghini Huracan.
Held at the DriveMe facility in Stafford, consisting of a looped track and tough chicanes to test a driver’s capabilities, Radek’s skills were put to the test; however, with the help of expert tuition from highly-qualified DriveMe instructors, his speed and control impressed.

In fact, Radek’s performance improved with each car he drove, culminating in an impressive 96% grading in his final vehicle,a neon green Lamborghini Huracan.

Radek was thrilled with his performance and recognised Comline for giving him the opportunity: “I would like to thank Comline for the great day and experience.”

Comline Marketing and Communications Manager, Leigh Davies, said: “Comline is a rapidly-growing aftermarket brand and, as part of our continuining promotional activity, we are always looking for new ways to excite and engage the automotive trade, particularly at high-profile events, such as Automechanika Birmingham.

“The Comline Champion competition was a great way to do this, and I’m delighted to have selected Radek as one of our winners. As a passionate technician and petrolhead, Radek really enjoyed his day behind the wheel of some truly iconic vehicles, and I’m certain that the experience will last long in the memory.

“Radek is our first Comline Champion, and we expect to crown many more at shows, events and exhibitions across Europe.”
