WE HAVE A WINNER! VIP hospitality at Halfords Tour Series in Southport on Tuesday

Win yourself a prime position to cheer on Kuota-road.cc!

The Halfords Tour Series is now approaching its halfway point, with the fifth round of ten taking place on Tuesday evening in Southport, and thanks to the generosity of the organisers, one lucky road.cc user will enjoy VIP hospitality with a pair of tickets up for grabs.

The VIP area enjoys great views of the start and finish line, putting you in the thick of the action, and before racing begins you’ll be treated to some fine food, with a free bar throughout to boot.

And with Kuota-road.cc looking to close the gap on teams ahead of them, you’ll be in prime position to cheer the boys on.

Hospitality opens at 5.30pm, so you’ll need to be able to arrive in Southport by then, with the race beginning at 7pm and podium presentations are at 8.45pm. The prize, for two people, includes:

• Exclusive views of the finish line and end-of-race podium presentations


• Buffet Dinner with accompanying wines


• Complimentary bar (alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages)


• Tea and coffee served all day


• A few words from Tour Series Chief Executive, Hugh Roberts or Technical Director, Mick Bennett


• Official Tour Series programme


• Experienced hostess and wait staff to ensure the smooth running of your day.

We’re running a similar competition for all remaining rounds of the Tour Series with the exception of the final round in Woking, so if you live in or near Kettering, Peterborough, Stoke-on-Trent or Chester, watch out for news of VIP tickets for those here on road.cc.

To enter, just put your name down on the comment thread below – normal road.cc competition rules apply, so only one entry per person, and good luck. We’ll be drawing the lucky winner’s name at Tiffin time on Monday.

In the meantime, there are two podcasts online now to help you get the inside scoop on the Tour Series to date – the first, featuring Technical Director Mick Bennett and Endura Racing’s Rob Hayles, can be found here, while another, with Thursday night’s winner in Exeter, Dean Downing of Rapha-Condor-Sharp, is available here.

The Halfords Tour Series is by far the best sporting event that comes to Southport each year. It has inspired me to get off the couch and take up cycling again after a long battle against cancer. I'll be coming along again this year and as a VIP would be wonderful.
Have a great evening!

watched it last year with my Children and had a wonderful time so watching it in the v.i.p.area would be a bonus, plus it falls on my birthday. Smile

Well, Tiffin has been taken, the random number generator has done it's, er, random number generation business, and the winner is... twinklydave!

Congratulations and enjoy the evening, Dave, and look out for an email arriving from us very soon.

Commiserations for those who were unlucky, but don't forget there will be three more opportunities to win VIP hospitality at the rounds in Kettering, Peterborough and Chester, so look out for details of those soon here on road.cc.
