Williams BMW were delighted to welcome to star Lancashire Cricket Club players, Tim David and Dane Vilas to our BMW retail centre in Trafford, Manchester.

The pair picked up their identical new BMW X5 45e’s in Tanzanite Blue, which were provided by Williams as part of a six-month partnership with the cricket club.

Dane, 36 and Tim, 24 were rewarded by Lancashire Cricket for their excellent performance and commitment to the club. Dane is originally from South Africa and joined Lancashire in 2017. Tim hails from Australia and joined the club earlier this year.

The X5 45e is a plug-in-hybrid SUV that offers low-emissions driving, ideal for when Tim and Dane are commuting to and from the Lancashire training ground and driving in their local community.

Our friendly Williams BMW Geniuses were on hand to demonstrate some of the key features of the X5’s to their new drivers and set them up on the My BMW App before they set off. The guys couldn’t wait to take their new cars for a spin - they said they might take the “long way” home!

Lancashire Cricket’s Director Mark Chilton (who also attended on the day) said “the Williams team were great and gave us the big reveal which was amazing. The cars are fantastic and the lads were grinning like Cheshire cats!”
