CES (UK) Becomes Title Sponsor of Three Castles

(Clacton, U.K./Tyres & Accessories) After successful involvement in the first two events, leading U.K. exhaust and car parts supplier CES (UK) has stepped up its support as co-sponsor of the annual Three Castles Welsh Classic Trial (May 31 – June 3), the new single centre, multi-day, classic car rally for the fourth year.

This has become Britain’s most popular classic car rally since being introduced in 2003.

Along with CES, Quinton Hazell, manufacturer of car parts based in Colwyn Bay, is also contributing to the sponsorship of the rally. “We’ve pulled suppliers, motor factors and customers alike into this event. The camaraderie is fantastic and it’s all about the sport on the Rally. We built our reputation on our specialisation in exhausts and catalysts but we offer a full range of car parts and garage equipment.

“We cover the whole of the U.K. but our head office is based in Chester, so we have a keen interest in North Wales and the North West. The high quality and wide appeal of this event together with its innovative style, matches our own aims perfectly,” say Howard Warren and Charles Colton, CES (UK) joint managing directors.

The ‘Three Castles’ has proved attractive to entrants, with the event attracting over a 100 cars each year (a value estimated at around £3 million) from all over the world. Entrants come from as far a field as Canada and The Netherlands as well as from other Nordic and European Countries.

“There is a fast growing interest in classic cars and classic motorsport,” says event director, Ian Crammond, “and we felt there was a real demand for a top quality event that was really accessible, friendly and non-threatening to precious machinery. Happily, events so far have proved us right. The great Welsh rallying roads are of course internationally famous, and entrants can do as much or as little competition as they like. No-one feels pushed, and many come along for the fabulous drive and the social side.”
