#Skydriver Rally Stunt
We’ve joined forces with Zip World and The Slate Mountain to create a never-seen-before stunt!
We’re so excited to share the results of our latest partnership with Zip World and The Slate Mountain which saw us create a stunt which is believed to be the first ever of its kind.
When we first heard about the early plans, we were so excited to be involved with such a groundbreaking stunt, especially with us entering our third year as the title sponsor of the Dayinsure Wales Rally GB, we jumped at the chance to be involved with such an exciting event in the run-up to the Dayinsure Wales Rally GB in October.
Located high up in Snowdonia, just north of Blaenau Ffestiniog, the filming for the groundbreaking stunt took place at the Llechwedd Slate Caverns, a location which will also be hosting two thrilling speed tests as part of the Dayinsure Wales Rally GB this year on Friday 5th October. With a location so closely related to the rally, and the chance to get the Dayinsure brand out to a wide range of people, we were buzzing be a part of the event and can’t wait to share the results of all of the hard work with you.
Ben Taylor, Managing Director of Dayinsure Wales Rally GB commented that “to promote the thriving adventure sports destinations in North Wales which, of course, includes the World Championship rally, our original thoughts were to put some of the top drivers down the zip wire… but, together with those at Zip World and our title partners at Dayinsure, we all got a bit carried away,”
Being a part of the behind the scenes filming was something we were keen to be involved in, seeing the car when it was first put into position on the zip wire was a tense moment, with our COO Barry stating that “we offer short-term online insurance on almost all kinds of vehicles, but this was one car that we certainly wouldn’t be keen to cover!”
“On a slightly more serious note, we are entering our third year as title sponsor for the highly-successful Wales Rally GB, and, backing this stunt has given us a brilliant opportunity to make even more people aware of the many benefits provided by the ever-increasing popularity of cost-effective temporary insurance whether cover is needed for an hour or 30 days.” – Barry Bown, COO, Dayinsure
The 90-second video also features a cameo appearance of Elfyn Evans, who previously won last year’s Dayinsure Wales Rally GB and became the first, and only Welsh driver to win a round of the premier league FIA World Rally Championship. “The stunt sounded absolutely crazy when I first heard about it and, believe me, it was even crazier to witness. I’m just glad it wasn’t me in the car,” – Elfyn Evans
