A Yarm groom-to-be was left feeling stunned after he was presented with a £90k car and £10,000 in cash a month before his wedding.

Mark Robinson, was waiting for a courier to collect a parcel when a team from Best of the Best (BOTB), a competition that gives the chance for people to win their dream car, arrived with his new Nissan GT-R Recaro on Tuesday morning.

The 53-year- old warehouse manager said it was “amazing” to have won the car and said his fiancée will have no excuses to be late on their wedding day next month - after winning the £82k muscle car and £10k in cash.

Mark said: “What a start to the year it’s been - I’m so happy.

“I couldn’t believe it when they turned up this morning with the car. It was just amazing. And I get married to Julianne next month and I might ask her to drive us both home afterwards. At least I know she won’t be late for the wedding!

“She doesn’t like the limelight so I think she’ll be more than happy for the car to get all of the attention.”

BOTB boss Will Hindmarch said he was delighted for Mark.

He said: “What a great way to start the new year.

“Not only is this clearly a dream car for Mark, but it’s a great present for him ahead of his big day next month.

“Everyone at BOTB would like to wish the happy couple a great wedding day and a very happy future. This is yet another brilliant good news story for all involved.”

Mark’s success in the spot the ball competition is the first of the new year with Aston Martin proving to be the most popular winning car during the last 12 months, with 10 people claiming the keys to one of the UK’s most prestigious brands.

BMW had nine winners, Mercedes had six and Porsche had five winners.
