Doncaster Rovers fans and car enthusiasts were all revved up with somewhere to go last weekend as the DRFC Car Show 2014 rolled into town.

If you are interested in a fast paced, vibrant career at Close Motor Finance, and would like information on the roles available within Doncaster and across the UK, please

“We would like to say a special thank you to Close Motor Finance, the event sponsor. To get a company with the national reputation of Close Motor Finance involved has been a great boost in addition to all the local car dealers.

Doncaster Rovers Head of Commercial Andrew Whitham said; "Thanks to all of those who came along and supported the event, we hope you enjoyed it and we look forward to making the event bigger and better next year.

"The winners - Bethany Fox, Owen and Ethan - can be found on our Facebook page. The day also saw our One Call Girls handing out goodies to the thousands of spectators that turned out on the day. We hope to see you all at the first home League match on the 16th August."

"It was a fantastic day, which saw over 100 children of all ages take part in our Penalty shootout competition against our mascots Fred and Cedric," she said

Our official club Sponsor for the fifth consecutive year, One Call Insurance were also present and Marketing Manager Emma Hyman spoke of her delight at how successful the event was.
Close Motor Finance, the official event Sponsor, were joined at the event by a host of notable car dealerships from the area including: Doncaster Honda, Burrows Toyota, Evans, Halshaw Nissan, Evans Halshaw Renault, Ringways Kia Doncaster, Fleet Direct, Stratstone BMW, Stratstone Mini, Perrys, Hayselden Skoda, Stoneacre, Car advisor and Piper's Car Sales.

But the star of the show was most certainly the ‘Swamp Thing’ Monster Truck which wowed the crowds with two car crushing exhibitions in front of the Donasonic/SMT Xtra East Stand. The metal crushing action was filmed for all to see.

The Doncaster Rovers Car Show in association with Close Motor Finance, included a new and used car exhibition, classic cars on site and the Roger Tuby International Fun Fair.

On behalf of Doncaster Rovers and Close Motor Finance, we would like to say a big thank you to everyone who came along and supported the event and to the exhibitors and sponsors who helped make our event a success. click here.
