New Zealand’s favourite SUV for New Zealand’s favourite Paralympian

The New Zealand Paralympic team is in Beijing readying themselves for the 2008 Paralympic Games and Kiwi’s expectations of them to add to the success of last month’s Olympic campaign are mounting.

The 30-strong New Zealand team has a target of 13 medals at the 2008 Paralympic Games and the hard work they have put in will get them the results they deserve.

After the countless hours of preparation and competing in a foreign country, it’s a comfort to know the athletes have Kiwi’s support – here’s your chance to show them.

Mitsubishi Motors is giving New Zealanders the chance to reward the immense effort of their favourite Kiwi Paralympian, by voting for them to win New Zealand’s favourite SUV – a Mitsubishi Outlander VRX, valued at $44,990.

By visiting members of the public can cast a vote for their favourite Paralympic athlete. By doing so they to will enter a draw to win an identical Outlander for themselves.

“New Zealand has a great history at the Paralympics and this team is set to carry that on. This competition is just one way the nation can show its support for our Paralympians regardless of the outcome,” says MMNZ marketing manager Daniel Cook.

The competition starts at 5pm on September 5 and ends at midday on September 18.
