Men & Motors will make you a mod

On the subject of competitions (have you ever won one?), here’s an interesting little tale. To promote Men & Motors’ extended broadcasting hours, Granada ran a competition among media clients and buyers. The prize – hang on to your parkas – an Aprilia Habana Custom Scooter.

Under the pretence of presenting a sales update on Men & Motors, the Granada channels sales team visited the winners – both of whom were, needless to say, rather surprised to be presented with gleaming new scooters instead of dull sets of figures. The Diary’s congratulations, then, go to Jacqui Peacock from Zenith Media and Matt Landeman (pictured) from Carat, who knew that Men & Motors exclusively covers the Isle of Man TT races, as immortalised by George Formby in No Limit. You could say it had turned out nice for them, then – but you probably wouldn’t.
