Gemma Pearce from Christchurch Wins a Brand New Peugeot 2008

Top Prize Winner at Westover’s Motor Showcase at the BIC

Lucky Gemma Pearce from Christchurch in Dorset won a brand new Peugeot 2008 when she attended the Westover Group’s Motor Showcase at the end of April. Gemma collected her car from the team at Westover Peugeot on Wallisdown Road last week, just a couple of days after it arrived at the showroom.

“I’ve entered loads of competitions in the past but I’ve never won anything big like this and I was absolutely speechless when I found out,” says Gemma. “I phoned my husband but he struggled to take the news on board as well. It’s taken a while to sink in for both of us.

“The car is just out of this world, it’s absolutely gorgeous and I love it. We went to the Motor Showcase because we needed a new car and we wanted to see them all in one place to save us visiting lots of different showrooms. We didn’t make a decision on the day and it’s just as well!

“Our son, who starts school in September, has named the car Optimus Prime (after the Transformers character) but I’m not sure I’ll be calling it that.

"It’s a great size for our two kids and all the stuff they come with and the whole family couldn’t be happier. It came at a great time for us and our thanks go out to Westover and Auto Trader.”

Gemma’s car is a Peugeot 2008 Active in Nera Black with a vigorous but economical 1.6 litre engine. The 2008 is a compact car that brings the maneuverability of a supermini with the strength of an SUV. It’s packed with innovative technology and has the top level European safety rating.

More than 5,500 visitors attended Westover’s Motor Showcase at the Bournemouth International Centre on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th April, where they were able to feast their eyes on over 150 of the newest cars currently available in the UK.

To be in the running to win a car, visitors simply had to register in advance at Anyone who printed off their ticket and had it scanned when they arrived at the free-to-attend show on the day, was entered into the free prize draw. The competition was run in association with Auto Trader, the UK’s largest digital vehicle market place.
