Mitsubishi dealers were out in force at Scotland’s top equestrian event – with the all-new L200 proving to be a big draw.

The 27th Blair Castle International Horse Trials, which comprised a variety of contests, was also the last opportunity for European countries to qualify for next year’s Olympic Games in Rio, adding to the excitement. What’s more, two L200s even formed one of the jumps.

The four-day event, held at Blair Atholl in Perthshire, attracted more than 60,000 visitors and also saw the popular Bruadar Country Fair taking place, with traditional countryside pursuits such as falconry, gundog training and dog agility.

On the Mitsubishi stand were Adam Purves Mitsubishi from Galashiels, Autoecosse Mitsubishi in Dundee, Fife Mitsubishi and Tweedmouth Service Station.

Alister Scott, Dealer Principal at Adam Purves Mitsubishi, said: ‘It was a very successful show and great to fly the flag. The main attraction was the L200 Series 5, which went down a treat, and it’s certainly a vehicle well suited to the terrain in Scotland.’

Autoecosse Managing Director Richard Lawson said: ‘The Mitsubishi stand was superbly located just to the side of one of the main arenas and the entire range was well represented, so the Mitsubishi brand was well exposed and there was considerable interest from visitors in all the models but especially the new L200 Series 5. The weather was fine apart from the Saturday, when we had terrible downpours, but even then our Sales Executive Steve Harper, in his Mitsubishi poncho, managed to sell an L200, so I’m really pleased about that.’

Stewart Smillie, General Sales Manager at Fife Mitsubishi, said: ‘We’ve been there for the past six years, as it gives us a really good opportunity to get out of the dealership and see so many people, because a lot of them don’t have the time to come to us. It was a great success.’
