There’s also a chance to win an ABAC Compressor package worth over £250; an Evercoat lightspeed pack worth over £1,000 with Indasa; and Alliance Automotive Group is set to have two vehicle simulators on the stand with a winner’s prize of two VIP tickets to the BTCC with NAPA and Apec.

Global fuel additive and engine oil manufacturer, JLM Lubricants, is offering those in attendance the chance to win an attractive product bundle worth over £200, with every visitor to the stand able to take away a selection of branded goods.

The deals and giveaways continue, as those who sign up for a free onsite Bodyshop Demonstration at Teroson’s stand can win two Grandstand Plus tickets to the London ABB FIA Formula E event in July.

What’s more, Autogem has a selection of TPMS starter kits and sets of Michelin Pro Series wiper blades exclusively available to visitors at discounted rates.

Well-known lubricants brand, WD-40, will be at the show too, giving away product and offering visitors the chance to get involved in a ‘spin the wheel’ competition with an Amazon voucher prize draw.

Grant Elrick, sales director at Messe Frankfurt UK, organisers of the exhibition, said: “We’ve already had a whole host of deals and discounts confirmed but are expecting plenty more in the run-up to the show, and as in many cases it’ll be first-come, first-served, we’re urging visitors to arrive early to ensure they don’t miss out and can make the most of what the jam-packed show has to offer. Not only will it provide a detailed insight into the most up-to-date trends, tools and technology in the market, but they’ll also be able to benefit from significant savings.”
