Shakil hits car and cash jackpot {{favouriteCount}} Quantity of Likes

A DEWSBURY shop-worker was speechless after winning a £58,000 car and £10,000 cash.

Shakil Patel, who works in his family-run business at the Texaco garage on Huddersfield Road, Birstall, was surprised with the brand-new BMW M4 on Tuesday morning when he turned up for his shift.

The 29-year-old had no idea he had won until Christian Williams, of car giveaway company BOTB, appeared at the garage to present him with the cash and the car.

Shakil, of Savile Town, said: “It’s unbelievable. I’m just trying to take it all in at the moment. I don’t know if it’ll sink in.”

BOTB.com gives away a supercar each week and contestants can choose their dream vehicle from more than 180 models, paying £3 or more for a ticket to play the “spot-the-ball” competition.

Shakil said: “I’ve been playing for the last couple of years and never really got close, but I’ve done it this time – I don’t know how I’ve done it but it’s happened!

“I selected quite a few cars so I didn’t know which one it would be. Any car that you win is a win-win situation.”
