Brooklyn Mazda has announced a sponsorship deal with a local golf professional from the world-famous golf course, The Belfry.

Mark Pearson will be taking to the roads in a brand new five-door Mazda6 diesel in striking Velocity Red from Brooklyn Mazda, which has dealerships in both Redditch and Kidderminster. The deal will last for 12 months and will assist Mark with his work as a senior instructor at The Belfry in Wishaw, Warwickshire.

Being a former European tour regular, Mark is used to driving long distances and understands the need for stylish yet reliable transport.

"I am delighted to receive this Mazda6 from Brooklyn Mazda," he commented. "With my monthly mileage being quite high, I wanted a car that would return competitive miles-per-gallon figures but that also looks good and is fun to drive. The Mazda6 provides this balance perfectly."

Mike Hogarth, sales manager at Brooklyn’s Redditch site, explained the decision taken by the dealership to be associated with The Belfry and one of its employees.

"The Belfry is widely considered to be one of the greatest golf courses in the world, having staged the last four UK-based Ryder Cup championships," said Mike.

"Coupled with the excellent work Mark does for the local community with his coaching, Brooklyn Mazda is proud to enter into this arrangement," he added.

The Mazda6 has been a huge success for the Japanese manufacturer since its 2002 introduction, taking the C/D segment by storm and winning numerous national motoring awards.

Already this year, the Mazda6 has taken prestigious titles such as ‘Best Diesel Family Car’ from Diesel Car magazine, ‘Best User-Chooser Car’ from Fleet World and, most recently, it was named ‘Best Family Car’ by Used Car Buyer.
