Rain Doesn't Dampen Jeep Spirit at Bovington

Westover Jeep enjoyed a tremendous time at the RAC Saddle Club on Saturday 15th and 16th October, despite a deluge of rain overnight that called a halt to Sunday's events.

Based at Bovington Camp, near Wareham in Dorset, the Royal Armoured Corps (RAC) Saddle Club is a British Horse Society (BHS) approved training, riding and exam centre. Originally formed as a facility for Royal Armoured Corps (RAC) service personnel and their dependants, the RAC Saddle Club still provides livery, lessons and training to the Armed Forces and their families. The Club also hosts competitive events, like the one supported by Westover Jeep.

"Rain may have stopped play but it definitely didn't dampen people's spirits and Saturday was a great day," says John Haylett, Head of Sales at Westover Jeep. "We had two of our cars based at the water jump - one of the more technical parts of the course - and they looked stunning, providing a real focal point for the event.

"We also had a pop up showroom with us, which attracted a lot of visitors. Our guests were all impressed with the Renegade but they couldn’t quite believe just how good the Grand Cherokee is 'in the flesh'. It represents excellent spec-for-spec value against its competitors and with the superb deposit contribution offers currently available it's a lot more affordable than they were expecting, bearing in mind it's a premium SUV that runs with the best in class.

"It was also a great opportunity to meet existing Jeep owners and introduce ourselves as the new name for Jeep in Dorset. Plus, I think people appreciated the chance to meet our senior technician who was there on the day, giving a great technical insight into the capability of old and new Jeeps alike.

"Our thanks to the team at Bovington for a great day. Hope to be there again next year!"
