Engineering consultant Alec Gwynn is due to retire at the end of the year, so over the past few months he's been entering the Dream Car Competition for "cars I can have some fun in, instead of the more practical ones I used to enter for!" He couldn't have chosen better this week and earlier today Christian travelled down to Cornwall to surprise Alec with the super-speedy Caterham 420! Alec quickly hopped behind the wheel and took the car for a spin around Penzance before cracking open the obligatory bottle of champagne down in the harbour – congratulations Alec!

The winner is calculated by external auditors Wilkins Kennedy, a top 20 UK accountancy group. View confirmation letter
All of our competitions comply with UK gaming law, which requires them to be skill based.
We use 'Spot the Ball' as the basis for our skilled competitions as it is both widely recognised and easy to understand.
The panel of judges (typically experienced football referees and ex-international players) use their expertise to decide where the centre of the ball is. This produces a set of coordinates which are sent to independent auditors, Wilkins Kennedy, to calculate who the closest player is to those coordinates and therefore, who the winner is.
The lawyers are OnSide Law, a firm of solicitors based in London, UK. The competition auditors are Wilkins Kennedy, an international firm of accountants. They oversee the judging process to ensure the correct winner is chosen and the judging is undertaken in compliance with the law.
There can only be one winner. If a case arises where two or more players are equally close to the judges' position in a competition, the winner will be determined by calculating the next closest entry of the players in question. The person with the closest second ticket is the outright winner. If any player in this scenario has only one ticket, all players that qualify will play in another 'Spot the Ball' competition online to determine the outright winner. All other players in this scenario will receive £500 in cash and £500 in Dream Car Credit if playing the Dream Car Competition and £200 in cash and £200 in Dream Car Credit if playing the Cash Competition.
