Fun fuelled weekend for Jelf in Cardiff
On the 8 and 9 June, Jelf Private client and Commercial teams joined together for a weekend filled of supercars and Italian performance machines, in aid of supporting local charity Dreams & Wishes organisation.
On Saturday, the World X Series Rally and Octane festival took place. Jelf were lucky enough to be joining the rally with a Morgan Roadster, kindly lent to us by Morgan Motors. The day started off with the group meeting at Blenheim palace, followed by a drive to the Morgan factory where drivers were taken on an exclusive tour of these iconic British cars. It was spectacular to see these machines on the production line and truly appreciate the expertise and care that goes into each car produced by the Worcester factory.
After the tour, the rally set off for Cardiff where the finish line and Octane festival was waiting for them. Jelf were on hand to take a photo of each car on arrival as a special memento for those who took part. There were some fantastic cars on show and fortunately the weather held out for all the drivers.
On Sunday the Italian Passion for Speed event took place in aid of the Dreams & Wishes organisation. The event raised money for sick children and families. The focus of the Sunday was around Italian performance machines, all of which were on display at the Millennium Centre on Roald Dahl Plass. It was a great opportunity for all to appreciate the variety of Italian heritage machines and meet their owners. Overall, it was a pleasure to support these events over the course of the weekend and raise funds for the dreams and wishes charity.
Commenting on the event, Hannah Bell, Private Client Development Director at Jelf said “The event went well despite the patchy weather. The Italian Passion for Speed event generated some great cars arriving in the bay and we really enjoyed meeting the owners and understand the passion they have for their supercars. Our commercial team from the Cardiff branch had a great time networking with local business and most importantly, these events raised money for the Dreams and Wishes organisation.”
Development Manager, Rhys Perkins, from Jelf in Cardiff commented “It was great to see this type of event come to Cardiff. To see so many supercars from across the UK in one place was just fantastic. It was a pleasure to collaborate with the Private Clients team and thank Hannah Bell for her support to make the weekend a success.”
