Arrow Self Drive has thrown its weight behind Yorkshire’s bid to host the Grand Depart of the Tour de France in the county in 2014.

Arrow Self Drive has thrown its weight behind Yorkshire’s bid to host the Grand Depart of the Tour de France in the county in 2014. We have loaned two top of the range cars to Welcome to Yorkshire who are leading the bid.

The cars have been decked out in distinctive pink, yellow and white branding and will be on the road around the county as part of the final push to attract the epic race. One of the cars is pictured here with Craig Kelly, Business Development Manager at Arrow Self Drive and both cars are shown at the Lord Mayor’s Show in London where they recently made their first appearance.

Robert Hill Managing Director of Arrow Self Drives says, ’Bringing the Tour de France to Yorkshire is a great idea and Arrow Self Drive is proud to be backing the bid. We know that events of this sort generate lots of business for the county and these cars will certainly let people know that we are serious!’

Chief Executive of Welcome to Yorkshire Gary Verity adds, ‘It is support from companies like Arrow Self Drive that gives that extra boost to our bid. The cars look great and really get our message across. With its glorious countryside, fantastic coastline and vibrant cities Yorkshire is an ideal place to host the Grand Depart of the Tour de France in 2014 and if we are successful the economic boost to the county will be incredible.’
