Over the last 35 years, the Motability scheme has helped over 4 million drivers to get mobile by allowing them to lease a car, scooter or powered wheelchair at an affordable price. Now, drivers from across the Midlands are being invited to find out more about the scheme by visiting one of the UK's biggest Motability inspired events.

Sandicliffe, the award-winning Motability specialists, are hosting a very special off-site Motability event at the world famous Donington Park raceway on Wednesday 11th November. Visitors will be able to see and drive more than 60 cars, find out more about the huge range of adaptations that the scheme offers and enjoy family entertainment and hospitality.

Nigel Falkiner, head of Marketing at Sandicliffe, said: "Motability has helped millions of drivers to lease a car in exchange for their allowance and we've been at the forefront of the scheme for many years. This special event is designed to help drivers and their carers to find out more about Motability and how it can help them.

"We'll have more than 40 new cars on display indoors all with special on-the-day offers, plus a further 25 new cars to test drive around the grounds. Visitors will also be able to depart from a special 'pit lane' to test drive a range of new cars before learning more about the wide range of adaptations that are available. We also have 70 Motability Specialists including the team from Motability Operations on hand to answer questions about the benefits of the scheme.”

As well as the latest cars, specially adapted models and test drives, Sandicliffe's Motability event is designed to be a fun family day out. There will be free-to-enter competitions, face painting, balloon sculptures and street magic as well as a special appearance by the Leicester Riders basketball team who will be signing autographs and posing for photos. The region’s radio stations will be there also and there’s a chance to win a holiday for four on the day. There is ample free parking and there will be hot and cold food and drinks available all day.

Sandicliffe are one of the region's leading Motability partners having won numerous awards for their Motability expertise including a recent Dealer Award from Motability Operations. Mr Falkiner from Sandicliffe added: "Whether you are a returning Motability customer or you have the Motability Allowance but haven't exchanged this for a new car there will be plenty to discover at our special event.

"Our aim is to stage the best off-site Motability show in the UK and we anticipate there will be a lot of people attending this free event. It will be a fantastic day, made even more special by staging this at the world-famous Donington Raceway just off the M1."

Please note: a two minutes silence will take place at 11:00am in respect to Armistice Day.
