BTCC Star Attends MG Northampton Event

BTCC Star Attends MG Northampton Event

BTCC’s hottest new star, who just so happens to be driving for MG, attended MG Northampton’s Test Drive event recently, showing support for his sponsors.

Held at CarShop Northampton – Northampton’s official MG dealership – Sutton spent the evening entertaining MG enthusiasts and MG newbies alike; accompanying them on test dives, alongside facilitating one-on-one Q&A sessions about the brand and his BTCC aspirations. He was also on-hand to hand out the MG goodies and the test drive incentives.


The event also showcased MG’s impressive new MG GS augmented reality kit. Developed using the latest technology, this software and accompanying GS box allows users to immerse themselves in a ‘first look’ virtual tour of the MG GS. CarShop, like other MG dealers throughout the UK has this kit, and it will be making its way around the four UK MG stores, including CarShop Northampton.

The GS will be available at CarShop Northampton from June, and it set to rival more established players in the SUV market, including the Vauxhall Mokka and the Nissan Qashqai.

Chris Delaney, CarShop Northampton Operations Manager, commented:

Since we partnered with MG three years ago we’ve seen a massive spike in interest around the MG3 and MG6. The MG team are extremely supportive; this event is just one example showcasing their dedication to helping us succeed, but they also provide regular updates and training to ensure we’re always aware of everything MG. It was really great to get Ashley Sutton down here too – personally I’m a massive fan.

CarShop Northampton also stocks the latest models of the MG3 and MG6. And until the end of July, anyone who takes a test drive in an MG3 or MG6 will have the choice of claiming either a free satellite navigation system, a 1 year subscription to English Heritage or roadside assistance for a year. Other current offers on the MG3 include a deposit contribution and free insurance*; on the MG6 customers can benefit from free servicing alongside the deposit contribution*. More information on these models can be found at or by calling MG Northampton on 0333 800 1695.
