It’s a day of double celebrations in the Hastie household – not only is it Derek’s young son’s birthday, but he’s also become Dream Car winner number 458, landing the incredible Nissan GT-R Recaro worth a whopping £85,000! With a new puppy to look after, Derek was working from home in Fife earlier today and Christian braved the wintry weather to surprise him with the amazing news that he’d also won £20,000 in cash…enough for a life’s supply of dog food! Congratulations Derek and happy birthday to the wee bairn!

I don’t think anything can prepare you for Christian turning up at your door. I’ve watched many winners being surprised and found myself smiling while watching them, thinking how fantastic it must be to get that knock on your door. I think shock is the only way to describe how I felt initially, then excitement that you have just won your dream car. It went so fast, and once the guys had left I was thinking “did that really just happen?” I did have a jump about the kitchen when I had a moment to myself that afternoon!
BOTB has been great and everything has been very straightforward. John at Nobles Nissan in Edinburgh also kept me informed while I was waiting what felt a lifetime (even though it was only 2 months) for the car to arrive. The car collection day was nice to share with my son, who is 6 and already a petrol head! As for the car itself? It is just sensational! It has had some great reactions – when complete strangers are giving you the thumbs up, or filming the car with their phones, you know you picked the right one!
For the first few days, I was still waiting on someone tapping me on the shoulder to tell me I’d had my fun and it’s time to hand the keys back. I still smile when I open my garage and see the car, still not quite believing it’s actually mine! Thank you to everyone at BOTB for making this possible.
