Racegoers could win a car at Wincanton Racecourse
Visitors to Wincanton Racecourse could win a special Christmas present at its traditional Boxing Day meeting.
The racecourse has teamed up with local car dealership F J Chalke, based in Wincanton and Mere, to offer racegoers the chance to win a Suzuki Alto SZ car.
The draw will be made during Wincanton Racecourse's Boxing Day meet, and will be open to everyone who books advance tickets.
The car, which is worth more than £7,000, will be presented to the winner on Saturday, January 5.
James Chalke, managing director of the family-run dealership, said: "The racecourse is right on our doorstep and it offers the perfect shop window to encourage people to come and visit our show room.
"We've been involved with various other equestrian-related activities, and we are very much looking forward to our new involvement with Wincanton Racecourse."
Steve Parlett, general manager at Wincanton Racecourse, added: "It's a fantastic initiative. The prospect of winning a new car should prove a good incentive to come along and enjoy what is a fantastic family tradition."
The next race meeting will be held next Saturday as the racecourse hosts the Badger Ales Chase Day.
The first of six races gets underway at 12.35pm.
