One of the UK’s largest privately owned independent motor groups, JCT600, has been unveiled as the official car supplier of the Tour de Yorkshire.
The Yorkshire-based car company will supply every official vehicle for the cycle race including providing Volkswagens, Audis and Maseratis.
JCT600 was originally founded in 1946 from a single garage and now has 19 franchises operating from 50 dealerships across the North, with an annual turnover in excess of £1 billion.
John Tordoff, Chief Executive of JCT600, said: “We have a huge amount of Yorkshire pride and that’s why we wanted to be directly involved with the delivery of this massive new international race.
“Our cars will be seen on TV around the world, which is great for us, and ultimately we wanted to play our part in making this massive new event for Yorkshire a success.”
Gary Verity, Chief Executive of Welcome to Yorkshire, said: “JCT600 and its cars will become synonymous with this major new international race and we are delighted yet another proud, leading Yorkshire company is wanting to help make it a huge success.”
