Kawasaki Teryx finishes miles ahead of competition to win at 41st Baja 500

DragonFire Racing, a leader in custom performance racing vehicles, accessories and custom racing, announced that its Kawasaki Teryx, driven by Reid Nordin of Team Green Kawasaki and co-driver Hans Waage, took first place in UTV class at the Baja 500, in Ensenada, Mexico. The first place finish was the first win ever for Kawasaki Teryx, in the Sportman UTV class of the Baja 500.

“It was the best racing we have had in Baja,” said Todd Romano, owner, DragonFire Racing. “A flawless day with only one mechanical repair, allowed us to run a safe and consistent pace all day. A broken rear upright cost us about three hours, but the speed of the DragonFire Teryx was able to put a big enough lead on the field to make up lost ground and still win by over an hour.”

Europcar, The UK’s Leading Car Hire Company, Has Announced The Launch Of Its Latest Product – Airport Connect

Lugging heavy bags across town, while worrying about whether train delays will cause missed flights, isn’t the best way for any traveller to kick-off their holiday of intended rest and relaxation. This is why Europcar has created Airport Connect to alleviate some of the stress of travelling to the airport with a convenient and comfortable car hire option that helps get holidays off to a flying start.

Airport Connect customers can simply hire a vehicle from their local Europcar location, leave it at the airport branch and then take the courtesy coach directly to the terminal. On the way home, the process simply works in reverse, so there is no more struggling with train connections and rushing from A to B. Furthermore, Airport Connect customers can also transfer between UK airports.

By booking a car hire deal through Europcar’s new Airport Connect, travellers can be sure that they get a vehicle that’s large enough to take all their luggage and family comfortably. Holidaymakers can slip behind the wheel of their Europcar vehicle and start their trip the way they mean to go on.

Catriona Lougher, Marketing Director for Europcar UK Group said, “The holiday experience begins the moment you set off. Cramming the family and luggage into a small car or taking heavy bags and excited children on the train is guaranteed to get a trip off to a bad start. Airport Connect from Europcar ensures travellers arrive at the airport relaxed and ready for their holiday.”
