Church Pastor Benefits from Kia Australian Open Competition


(PRWEB) February 20, 2012

Canberra based Glenn Warburton entered the competition thinking he had little to no chance of winning. However, when he received the call he was told he had not only won a brand new Kia Rio, but also a trip to Melbourne to watch the men?s and women?s finals, he was overawed.

?I never win anything,? Mr Warburton said. ?So when I received the phone call I was in shock. Once I hung up and discussed it with my wife we knew exactly what we were going to do with the car.?

Two days prior to winning the Kia Rio, Mr Warburton visited his local church associate pastor Scott Wilmot, to find he had recently been given the unfortunate news that his family car was going to cost more to repair than it was to replace. Mr Warburton remembers wishing there was something he could do.

Two days later he rang Pastor Wilmot with the good news. After several phone calls and much convincing, Mr Warburton finally persuaded the minister to accept the Kia Rio gift.

?My wife and I just bought a new BMW X3 late last year,? said Mr Warburton. ?But when I sat in the new Kia Rio I was very surprised. The prize vehicle is a top of the range SLi 5-door, not only is it comfortable, it looks impressive and comes with every gadget conceivable.?

The Kia Rio 5-door SLi comes standard with one of longest lists of passenger comforts in the light passenger vehicle segment. Cruise control, Bluetooth, iPod connectivity and a six speaker surround sound system which is all controlled remotely through the steering wheel adds to the driving experience. Daytime running lights and 17inch alloy wheels make the Rio look as good as it handles, thanks also to major input from the Australian ride and handling team.

To keep the new Pastor and his family safe, six front, side and curtain airbags, HAC (hillstart assist control), ESC (electronic stability control), ABS anti-lock brakes, EBF (electronic brake force distribution) and EBA (emergency ?brake assist?) systems are fitted to the SLi and also come standard across the entire Rio range.

While Pastor Wilmot received the new Kia Rio Mr and Mrs Warburton travelled to Melbourne to watch the men?s and women?s finals and apparently didn?t leave their seats once during the epic six hour battle between Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal.

?The whole experience of being able to provide our new associate pastor with such a fantastic and much needed car, and being able to attend the finals of the Kia Australian Open, was a real personal highlight,? Mr Warburton said.
