Leading classic car insurance firm Carole Nash is really putting the stunt into its publicity for a new online quoting service. To herald the arrival of the new facility on its website the company is offering one lucky classic car enthusiast the chance to join world-beating display driver Russ Swift as he performs his daredevil routines.

Anyone getting a Carole Nash classic car quote online before December 1st will be entered for a free draw with the winner getting to take part in one of Russ’s breathtaking displays and being his VIP guest for the day at one of his UK shows. Typically these include him taming his trademark classic Minis to slalom on two wheels, handbrake park from 50mph, perform dance routines and two feats for which he holds Guinness world records – reverse spinning between two cars at 40mph and parallel parking into a space as little as 33cm (13”) longer than the car.

The prize is being offered by Russ as a thank-you to Carole Nash for sponsorship which has provided insurance for his audacious antics over the past five years.

“Providing insurance for a driver like myself might be considered a daring feat in itself but Carole Nash are masters of risk assessment. They know my no claims record!” joked Russ. “As a policyholder myself I find it less than daring to commend them to classic car enthusiasts because I know they’re as passionate as they are knowledgeable about what they do.”

Entry to the prize is automatic when you get a classic car insurance quote online or by calling 0800 977 6890 so you don’t actually need take out a policy to be in with a chance of winning. Of course Carole Nash hopes that you might well be tempted by benefits such as inclusive UK and European accident and breakdown recovery, free agreed value, foreign use cover, salvage retention rights and club discounts!
