UK Worker of the Year 2014 Races to Record Number of Entrants at Oulton Park

The Bank Holiday weekend saw UK Worker of the Year break new records at Oulton Park, with the competition passing a record amount of entrants, despite only launching two weeks ago.Chris 'Stalker' Walker was a big draw for many British Superbike fans at Oulton Park last weekend 

The competition, set up by legendary workwear company Dickies to recognise and reward hard work in Britain, launched at Brands Hatch on the 18th April and has already seen thousands of hard workers enter for their chance to be crowned UK Worker of the Year 2014.

Alongside thousands of British Superbike fans having the chance to enter this year’s competition, the Dickies stand also played host to fan favourites Taylor Mackenzie, Josh Waters, John Hopkins and ‘Stalker’ Chris Walker, who came along and signed autographs for those entering the competition.

Like last year’s competition, the competition is sponsored by Dickies, in association with Suzuki. The winner this time round will have the choice to take home a Suzuki S-Cross car, a Suzuki V-Strom 1000 motorcycle or a Suzuki ATV Quad. However, in addition to these fabulous prizes, the lucky winner will also have the chance to win a cash prize of £100K this time round.

The winner of the competition will be announced at the final round of the British Superbike meeting at Brands Hatch on October 18th. The winner will then also be given the opportunity to predict the outcome of a race on the final day and potentially win £100,000 pounds. Runners up in the competition will receive thousands of pounds in holiday vouchers.

In 2013, Judi James, a farmer from Littlebreddy in Dorchester was crowned the fourth UK Worker of the Year at the awards evening at the Madejski Stadium in Reading, wowing the audience at last year’s gala event with her passion and drive for farming.

“This competition has changed my life and the car will help me so much with my work. I would urge anyone who hears about the competition to have a go at entering or to nominate someone as an entrant. It costs nothing except a few minutes of time and those few minutes could prove to be incredibly worthwhile,” said Judi.

Maurice Morton, sales & marketing director at Dickies stated: “The atmosphere around the Dickies stand was fantastic throughout the Bank Holiday weekend. “The Suzuki S-Cross and V-Strom motorcycle were present at the Dickies stand, receiving overwhelming attraction and this certainly encouraged entries.” There is no doubt this year’s prizes are the best yet, and that is being reflected in the record number of entries we have received so far.”

UK Worker of the Year is a ‘free-to-enter’ competition and is open to anyone aged 17 or over (on the date of the launch), who works in the UK.
