Welsh rugby star Taulupe Faletau has helped launch Motorpoint’s Conversion Challenge in Newport

“We’re big rugby fans at Motorpoint and are extremely grateful to Taulupe for taking time out from training to help get our Conversion Challenge underway in Newport”

The UK’s largest independent car retailer, which is based next to the Newport Retail Park in the city, is celebrating the imminent arrival of the Guinness Six Nations at the start of February by giving rugby fans the unique opportunity to put their kicking skills to test and win a trip to see England v Wales at Twickenham in March.

And 29 year-old Taulupe, who plays back row for Bath in the Gallagher Premiership, put on his kicking boots to demonstrate how to kick over the posts in the Motorpoint-branded kicking cage in order to be in with a chance of winning the prize. 

Chris Brown, General Manager of Motorpoint Newport, explained: “We’re big rugby fans at Motorpoint and are extremely grateful to Taulupe for taking time out from training to help get our Conversion Challenge underway in Newport.

“Not only does the Conversion Challenge promise to be lots of fun but it provides a unique opportunity for one lucky rugby fan to cheer on the Welsh team at Twickenham this spring in the Guinness Six Nations.” 

The Motorpoint Conversion Challenge will be available for visitors to use seven days a week between Monday, January 13 and Sunday, February 22, with rugby fans getting just one chance to kick over the posts in order to be in with a chance of winning. The prize includes an overnight hotel stay in London. The winner will be announced on Monday, February 24.

Motorpoint Newport, which has been based in the city for over 15 years, stocks over 500 low mileage, nearly new cars all under three years old and with less than 25,000 miles, from 30 different manufacturers, with a further 6,500 vehicles available in group stock. Every vehicle will come with the balance of manufacturer’s warranty and be available to drive away the same day.

Motorpoint, the current naming rights partner for the Motorpoint Arena Cardiff, the region’s largest indoor entertainment venue, is committed to making car buying easy which is why, backed by the Motorpoint Price Promise, Motorpoint will also refund the difference to any customer within seven days of their order if they find the same car from a competitor. As an added bonus, it will also give the customer £50 worth of Amazon vouchers to spend.
