North Wales rally pro Jade to debut new Kia car at festival

A REPRESENTATIVE of North Wales Motor Company (NWMC) has been selected out of thousands of drive for Kia as their ambassador at Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Jade Paveley, a rally pro and marketing director for Llandudno Kia (of which NWMC is the parent company) is to drive the Kia EV6 GT for its debut appearance, at the festival at Goodwood House, West Sussex from June 23-26.

Kia’s most powerful production car so far, the all-electric high-performance crossover will be taking on the festival’s hill climb several times throughout the weekend, and can accelerate from zero to 62mph in just 3.5 seconds.

Jade was 2021 British Rally Cross Country Championship (BXCC) Class T2 champion and 2018 Junior Welsh Tarmac Rally champion.

She is also the end-of-stage reporter for the World Rally Championship and European World Rally Championship, as well as marketing director for Llandudno Kia.

Jade, who has been involved in the world of motorsport since 2008, said: “It’s such a great opportunity to be an ambassador to a global brand, Kia, at such a prestigious event like Goodwood!

“And even better that I can finally represent a brand my family business is so closely involved with as the Kia branch in Llandudno.

“I’ve driven so many cars in my time but none that we as a family actually sell so it finally all lines up! I can’t wait!”
