You’ll remember a couple of weeks ago I told you guys about a cool competition that Ford’s running as part of the launch of their new EcoSport (imagine a cross between a hatchback and a SUV) that I’m excited to be (co) judging.
To give you an update, the Top 4 were recently announced and the lucky buggers are…
Here & There are from Cape Town – led by Giles Lord
Team Jozi Jackals from the City of Gold & led by Sicelo Ngubane
The ECO-Trendsetters are from Durban and led by Candice Manning
EcoSportElizabeth from windy PE (as you may have guessed) led by Lauren Buchanan
Here’s a quick look at all 4 teams… I really like that there are 2 girls & 2 guys leading the teams – nice! PS We would have had a Top 5 but the Bloemfontein finalist withdrew due to personal commitments.
What happens next?
The teams have each been given an EcoSport to drive for 3 weeks and now it’s up to them to really show us what their city is about. They’ll be followed around by a film crew for some of that time too and they’ll be blogging about their urban discoveries.
What’s in it for me?
If you didn’t make it to the Top 4 all is not lost. You could still be in line to win an EcoSport to drive for 6 months! So be sure to sign-up, follow your favourite team’s adventures & comment/share online. If your favourite team wins you’ll go into the draw!
The winning team will be announced on Friday November 15th!
And don’t forget to check out my review of the EcoSport from earlier in the year (be warned, you’re going to want one!).
Good luck everyone!
