Nottingham taxi driver 'can't believe it' after winning three prizes in huge competition {{favouriteCount}} Quantity of Likes

A Nottingham taxi driver has picked up three prizes, including a car worth £115,000, only two years after winning his first big prize with a competition firm. Daniel Stanciu, 31, said he promised his wife that he would strike gold again when he entered BOTB’s Dream Car Competition.

He was still left questioning whether it was real when presenter Christian Williams knocked on his door to tell him he had landed a BMW M2, a family holiday to Disneyland Paris, and £50,000 in cash. Visibly shaking, Daniel greeted Christian with a huge hug before declaring: “I can’t believe it!”

The win comes just two years after Daniel won an Audi RS3 Sportback worth over £50,000 and £20,000 with BOTB. He eventually opted to take the cash alternative to the car.

“My dreams have come true,” the father-of-two said. “My wife asked me why I was dreaming of winning again and I said to her I promise I’ll do it and here we are.”

Winning a new set of wheels couldn’t have come at a better time for Daniel, whose car broke down just two days before finding out he had won. “I’m currently without a car and am unable to work at the moment,” the taxi driver said.

“I’m waiting for mine to be repaired so this is great timing. The BMW M2 is an amazing car and I’m very excited about taking my two boys to Disneyland. The money will also come in handy, although I’m not sure what we’ll be doing with it yet.” The 31-year-old added: “I was shaking and lost for words when I found out and it still hasn’t quite sunk in. I would recommend playing this competition because BOTB makes dreams come true.”

The BMW M2 features an i6 Turbo engine, 454bhp and a top speed of 155mph. Christian said: “It was fantastic to be able to surprise Daniel with this huge prize.
"I loved the surprised look on his face when I appeared at his door, especially as this was his second time of winning. The car is a beast and I am sure the family will have an amazing time at Disneyland Paris.”

BOTB hands over the keys to a stunning dream car each week as well as a lifestyle prize. Winners have bagged Rolex watches, holidays and motorbikes in recent months.

The company was founded by William Hindmarch in 1999 in London and has given away a whopping £64m of cars so far. To see Daniel’s reaction alongside a host of other lucky winners, head over to
