UKWOTY Comes to Scotland as Hundreds Queue up to Enter Competition at Knockhill

Hundreds of British Superbike fans queued up over the weekend to enter UK Worker of the Year 2014, as the competition came to Knockhill in Scotland for the first time.

Visitors to the race circuit were able to enter the competition on their arrival, which further added to the already record-breaking entrant numbers for the 2014 competition. With the winning V-Strom 1000 motorcycle also present on the stand, fans came in huge numbers to enter this year’s competition and get a closer look at this year’s prizes.

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 was also present at Oulton Park. It has already seen thousands of hard workers enter for their chance to be crowned UK Worker of the Year 2014 and win this year’s fantastic prizes.

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.

Another successful showing for UKWOTY at Knockhill, as hundreds of further entries were madeMaurice Morton, sales & marketing director at Dickies stated: “ It was the competition’s first time in Scotland and everyone was keen to enter. The atmosphere around the Dickies stand was fantastic throughout the weekend. “The V-Strom motorcycle was present at the Dickies stand, receiving overwhelming attention 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.
