First car competition winner

An 18-year-old student from Oxfordshire drives away in a brand new limited edition Alfa Romeo MiTo thanks to a collaboration between Marmalade, provider of cars and telematics-based insurance for young drivers and FirstCar, the driving publication.

Hannah Cousins a student at Banbury Sixth Form College won the car as a result of entering the annual competition run through the FirstCar publication, she says: “I really enjoy driving and the freedom it has given me and I cannot wait to get behind the wheel of my new Alfa Romeo! I couldn’t believe it when I took the call to say I had won. Thanks so much to FirstCar and Marmalade.”

Richard Storrs from FirstCar commented: “It’s great to be able to be handing the keys to a brand new car over to a young driver. FirstCar is dedicated to helping younger drivers through every step of the journey, from applying for their provisional licence to buying and owning their first car.”

Crispin Moger, CEO of Marmalade, says: “Driving is all about enjoyment and safety. We’re proud to be champions of young drivers and using clever black box technology ensures safer driving as well as enjoying the independence that driving can offer young people.”
