This weekend sees the third annual summer open day at Twisted Automotive – the Land Rover® Defender® specialist and global vehicle exporter. Doors to its showroom, forecourt and workshop will be open to the public on Saturday 2nd September from 10am though to 4pm.
The open day offers Twisted fans and local families the opportunity to gain an insight into operations behind closed doors at the business’s headquarters on the Thirsk Industrial Park.
This week, the team have been busy working on the final touches to ensure that the workshop, forecourt, and the all important vehicles are all shining and looking their best come Saturday.
For families not only is there food, drinks, and entertainment all lined up, but it also presents an unmissable opportunity for young people wishing to pursue a career in the automotive industry to learn more about what it’s like to work in a busy, highly-skilled environment.
What’s more, the new Classic Twisted recently unveiled at the Goodwood Festival of Speed will be on show this weekend to give fans closer to home a chance to check out and explore the new range.
Vehicles to look out for this year include a Bahama Gold 110, which belongs to extreme adventurer and Twisted Automotive ambassador Sean Conway, alongside social media favourites, ‘the Monaco twins’.
Many of the company’s 23-strong team will be available to answer questions, give tours, and generally help visitors get the most out of their day, including the opportunity to chat to Twisted engineers about their current builds.
Twisted Automotive managing director, Charles Fawcett, said: “We export our vehicles to places like the USA, Malaysia, the United Arab Emirates and New Zealand, but we are proud of our identity as a Yorkshire business, and to be a part of the Thirsk community.
“It’s been another busy 12 months for the business, including the launch of our new Classic Twisted range, the appointment of Sean as our latest ‘Anti Ordinary’ ambassador and the announcement of a new three-year sponsorship deal with Gumball 3000.
“We’ve also grown our staff significantly to underpin our recent progress, and we are excited to meet new people from around the region, while renewing acquaintances with old friends.”
