  • Ringways Show Support for Garforth Velo Club’s ‘Way of the Roses’ Challenge'

    Ringways Motor Group are proud to announce they are one of a select group of official shirt sponsors for the Garforth Velo Club’s (GVC) ‘Way of the Roses Challenge’ in July.
    Taking place on Saturday 11th July, the Way of the Roses Challenge will see a group of around thirty GVC members take part in a coast to coast cycling challenge as they attempt to raise donations for three local charities, having provisionally already raised £5,625.50.
    Ringways Group Managing Director Stephen Russell said, “As an active member of our local community for over sixty years, Ringways Motor Group takes great pride in being able to give something back when the opportunity arises. The Garforth Velo Club’s Way of the Roses Challenge is a fantastic event which is raising money for some very worthy local charities so we were more than happy to show our support by acting as one of the official shirt sponsors. Everyone at Ringways would like to wish all those taking part the very best of luck.”
    Amongst those GVC members taking part in the Way of the Roses Challenge is Ringways Commercial Sales Executive Neil Waldron. A relative newcomer to cycling, Neil has spent months preparing ahead of the day, having agreed to join twenty of his fellow GVC members for the longer of the two challenges.
    Neil commented, “The Way of the Roses Challenge will see us attempt to ride 170 miles in one day as we make our way all the way from Morecombe to Bridlington. As you can imagine it’s a little daunting to face that many miles in just one day but we’ve all worked extremely hard to get ready for it so in a strange kind of way we’re really looking forward to it. On a personal note I’d just like to thank Ringways for their support, it really means a lot to me to see the company supporting us in this way.”
    Neil added, “All the money raised from both the 170 mile Way of the Roses Challenge and the shorter 105 mile Challenge from Pateley Bridge to Bridlington are being donated to three great causes: the Teenage Cancer Fund, Breakthrough Breast Cancer and St Gemma’s Hospice in Leeds so I’d like to encourage as many people as possible to donate whatever they can to help these worthy causes.”

  • Golden Anniversary for Ford Transit


    Ringways to mark Transit’s 50 years at top with ‘Transit Show Live’ Event

    from 16-25 May 2015



    The iconic Ford Transit celebrates 50 years as the gold standard of commercial vehicles this month and to mark the occasion Ringways Commercial Department is hosting a celebratory ‘Transit Show Live’ Event at its Whitehall Road Transit Centre in Leeds.

    Running from Saturday 16th May until Monday 25th May, the Transit Show Live Event provides people with the perfect opportunity to discover for themselves just why the Ford Transit has been the nation’s favourite commercial vehicle since 1965.

    Ringways Group Commercial Manager Mike Haley commented, “Everyone at Ringways Commercial is really excited to have the chance to celebrate the Ford Transit’s Golden Anniversary.  For one product to remain as market leader for half a century truly is a remarkable achievement and we look forward to showcasing and celebrating that achievement through our Transit Show Live Event starting this weekend.”

    Since the first Ford Transit van rolled off the production line in Cork, Ireland in 1965, the Ford Transit has woven a special place in the fabric of UK life.  In a recent history of the Ford Transit, noted industry website Autocar offered this perspective of the Transit’s impact:

    ‘The history books will tell you much about that year.  Jim Clark won the Indy 500 and the F1 World Championship.  Mary Quant invented the mini skirt.  More significantly a commercial vehicle launched that revolutionised the market and transformed the nation.  That van was the Ford Transit.  Now, the van transports billions of pounds of goods around the UK, and contributes even more value to the British economy in mobilising countless trades.  There’s barely a builder, plumber or electrician who hasn’t once counted a Transit as their most important tool.’

    Once labelled ‘Britain’s Most Wanted’ van by British Police following a string of high profile bank robberies in which Ford Transit’s were utilised as getaway vehicles during the 1970’s, the all-purpose Ford Transit range is as popular today as it ever has been, with year to date SMMT (Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders) figures showing Ford Commercial Vehicle sales, spearheaded by the Ford Transit range, are up a staggering 37.3% compared to 2014, meaning that in its 50th year as the UK’s Commercial Vehicle Sales leader, Ford’s lead has increased by 75%.

    Terry Raynor, Director of Transit Centres, Ford of Britain said, “Ford’s Commercial vehicles set the benchmark for efficiency and loadspace, and continue to push the boundaries of innovation.  At Transit Show Live, customers will see our new showrooms and learn about the fantastic technologies such as Lane Keeping Aid and Ford SYNC, which won a Euro NCAP Advanced Reward for Technology on the Ford Transit Custom, the first for any commercial vehicle.”

    All are welcome at the Ringways Transit Show Live in May, at which our dedicated Ringways Commercial Team will be on hand to answer any and all Transit related enquiries.  With free food, expert demonstrations and a special guest presentation on the new Ford Telematics Powered by Telogis system, the Transit Show Live promises to be an enjoyable and informative event for all involved.  We’ll even have our valet team wash your van while you visit.

    For more information about the Ringways Transit Show Live contact our dedicated Ringways Customer Engagement Team by phone on 0845 415-0-415 or via e-mail to: customercare@ringways.co.uk.

    Proud supporters of the Leeds Half Marathon



    As proud supporters of the 2015 Leeds Half Marathon Ringways Motor Group would like to wish all involved this Sunday the very best of luck for a highly successful day.

    Following on from last year’s record breaking day at which 7,000 runners helped raise a staggering £150,000 for official race charities, hopes are high that record interest levels in this year’s event will take those records higher still.

    Through Ringways media partner and official Leeds Half Marathon race partner Radio Aire, who will be providing music and commentary throughout the event, Ringways are proud to be playing their own part in proceedings having donated a Ford Kuga for use as the official timing vehicle as well as a Ford Transit Custom van for race support.

    Ringways Group Managing Director Stephen Russell commented, “Organised by Run For All as part of the lasting legacy of Jane Tomlinson CBE, the Leeds Half Marathon has very quickly become an iconic event for the city as a whole so when Radio Aire approached us for support we were only too happy to contribute.  I’m sure it will be a fantastic day for all involved with a tremendous amount of money raised for some very worthy causes.”

    Amongst the ten official charities set to benefit from this year’s Leeds Half Marathon will be Martin House Children’s Hospice, St Gemma’s Hospice, the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice and the Overgate Hospice, securing the events status as ‘Yorkshire’s biggest hospice run’.

    For those interested in cheering on the runners as they make their way through the city, proceedings get under way from 09:30am on the Headrow with this year’s finish line in Millennium Square.  A dedicated ‘Family Zone’ will also be hosted in Victoria Gardens.

  • All New ‘KIA Picanto’ Arrives at Ringways

    The all new ‘KIA Picanto’ has arrived. Launched at the Geneva Motor Show in March, the highly anticipated new Picanto brings with it a host of enhancements, offers six new and improved versions to choose from and is available to view, test drive and purchase at Ringways KIA dealerships on Whitehall Road in Leeds and Bullrush Grove in Doncaster now.
    Ringways KIA Franchise Manager Clare Wright commented, “Everyone at Ringways KIA is delighted the new Picanto has arrived. Interest levels in this vehicle have been phenomenal ever since it appeared in Geneva so we’re really excited to now have the chance to show people first hand just how good the new KIA Picanto is.”
    Available in three and five-door models, the new Picanto features a string of interior and exterior styling and quality enhancements, includes far more equipment as standard than its predecessor and still comes complete with KIA’s famous seven-year warranty.
    So just how good is the new KIA Picanto? Noted industry expert Jonathon Crouch from ‘caranddriving.com’ offered this thought in his recent review: ‘In second generation form, KIA’s Picanto is a little city-car that’s big in importance for its Korean maker. Stylish, frugal and practical, so much better is it than the cheap and cheerful original version that it may just redefine the way many people think about this smallest category of car.’
    Popular online reviewer ‘carwow’ was equally impressed with the New Picanto. Its review stated: ‘Overall, the KIA Picanto is a great little car with plenty of positive aspects and quirks. It’s cheap to buy and run, the space and refinement on offer is impressive for supermini standards, the styling is smart and it can hold its own in narrow streets and on dual carriageways.’
    So will the new Picanto live up to all the hype? Why not visit one of our Ringways KIA dealerships to decide for yourself?
    For more information about the new KIA Picanto range or to arrange a viewing or test drive please call our dedicated Ringways Customer Engagement Team on 0845 415-0-415 or e-mail customercare@ringways.co.uk.
