It's often said that nothing comes for free - well, things are about to change, as Motovicity Distribution, a leading performance, aftermarket auto parts distributor, announced the launch of their "Ticket to Ride" promotion, where a 2013 Scion FR-S and 2013 Ford Mustang, plus an assortment of performance products to go with each car.
Winners of the project cars will then document the installation of the supplied parts along with before/after performance test results. The promotion runs through September 30, 2013, and is open to all current and future Motovicity customers.
But because Motovicity is a wholesale-only distributor, only registered performance parts retailers and participating speed shops are eligible to participate. Winners will be randomly selected by a ticket drawing in October.
"This is an opportunity for people to see in real-life, how well these parts perform and what's involved with installing and setting them up onto specific types of vehicles," said Brian Lounsberry, Motovicity's vice president of sales and marketing.
Once the winners have received their prize vehicles, the builds will begin. Motovicity and MotoIQ will provide regular updates on the progress of the installs, and the final project cars will be performance tested by a professional racecar driver on a closed track to analyze the performance gains. "The winning teams not only get a brand new project car and some of the best performance parts in the world for free, they get to show off their talents and mechanical abilities to a national audience," said Brett Kinsfather, Motovicity marketing manager.
Among the participating companies are: Vibrant Performance, Exedy, StopTech, Royal Purple, Sparco and Gates Racing (supporting both project builds); AEM Electronics, Eibach and Energy Suspension (only the Scion FR-S build); and KW, Whiteline, BBK and STACK (only the Mustang build).
