The MINK as seen on TopGear
In January of this year, during a Broad Lane brainstorm, Joint MD Steve Brown brought to everyone’s a attention something that had “Caught his eye!” There was not one person who didn’t just get it and agree with him straight away, an email was sent - directly from the meeting - to MINK Campers in Iceland to ask and establish whether they had representation of their amazing product in England.
That was the start of something very special…. By March time we’d established the answer was no, and an agreement was put in place that would see Broad Lane being invited to be the very first agent, for the Mink Camper 2.0, for the whole of the UK! On top of that, we became their sole distributor.
By April, it transpires that the BBC Top Gear crew had been brainstorming too and we were approached to see if we would supply a Mink Camper for their new series that would be airing in the winter-time! Not only was the Mink to get on one of the biggest TV shows across the globe…. but also, the legend that is Freddie Flintoff, one of Englands greatest all round cricketers and showbiz characters, had personally chosen the MINK to use in the show, entitled - Electric Caravanning - for himself!
It is now November, and on BBC1 at 8pm - this Sunday 21st - The Top Gear Electric Caravanning edition will air for the very first time! See Freddie, Paddy and Chris get up to loads of mischief and compete head to head with modern day lightweight caravanning wonders towed by 100% pure electric vehicles!
Here are a few images to tempt youth take a look ….
See what they get up to and what comes out on top!!!
It promises to be hilarious!
