The Mitsubishi Motors Cup competition winners have now picked up the keys to their amazing prize from the competition’s ambassador and event rider Emily King. 

 

Katie Hancock who lives near Newquay, was the runaway winner in the BE100 category of the eventing championship, which offered amateur riders from all over Great Britain the chance to compete for honours ahead of the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials in May. Katie collected her Mitsubishi Outlander GX4 from Hawkins Mitsubishi in Cornwall, which she will keep for a year. Katie who rode Kilcandra Rambo Ray to win said, "I have come back down to earth since winning but I’m still overwhelmed by it all.

 

The winner of the BE90 section was Sophie Walker from Shropshire who rode Rhapsody RFW. In picking up her new ASX 5 from JT Hughes in Telford she said, “I still can’t believe I won, it’s something I only ever dreamed of. I went there aiming for the top half, so to win was just incredible.”
