Jeep increases its horse power with William Fox Pitt

11th March 2013 Print

Jeep has announced that they have joined forces with William Fox-Pitt as the UK's top three-day-event rider has become an official Jeep Global Ambassador.

The three times World Number 1, three times Olympic medalist and eleven times British number one is the latest top sports star to choose Jeep as his mode of transport. The eventing season starts in March and Fox-Pitt will be travelling to his events in Jeep style!

Fox-Pitt will be driving the latest Grand Cherokee with a blend of luxury, space and unbeatable off-road capability which will suit William perfectly and with 237 BHP it will have no problems leading the Jeep convoy to and from events.

The Olympic silver medalist isn't the only one being given the Jeep treatment either! Not only will all members of the William Fox-Pitt support team be wearing all new Jeep gear, the horses will join them in donning branded Jeep equipment.

William Fox-Pitt said, "I am extremely proud to be the global ambassador for Jeep®. Outdoor adventure and learning to challenge yourself everyday is something I'm a big believer in, and I know that the Jeep brand represents similar traits. I have an exciting season coming up and I know the Jeep, and it's four-wheel drive capability in particular, is going to be very useful."

Nigel Land, Brand Director Jeep Chrysler UK, said: "We're delighted to have William Fox-Pitt on board as a global ambassador. William has been at the top of his profession for over fifteen years now and it's great to have a sportsman of his caliber associated with Jeep. After such a successful season last year, what with his silver medal at London 2012 with Team GB we're sure he's got another successful year ahead."
