Mercedes-Benz picks-up Boardsports Ireland with X-Class


Mercedes-Benz Commercial Vehicles division in Ireland is supporting a wide range of events promoted by outdoor pursuits specialists, Boardsports Ireland by supplying a new Mercedes-Benz X-Class X220d Pick-up for the year ahead.

Within the range of all-action activities falling under the Boardsports Ireland umbrella are surfing, water sports, BMX cycling and mountain biking. Viewing the linkage as one that “perfectly positions the X-Class in front of that generation of sports-active motorists for whom it was designed”, Fergus Conheady, Sales Manager for Mercedes-Benz Commercial Vehicles Ireland said: “Through this new partnership, the X-Class will bring added glamour and prestige to the numerous sports events with which Boardsports Ireland is associated.”

Dressed in specially-designed bespoke livery, the X-Class will be in use at a comprehensive programme of events that includes surf schools planned for Brittas Bay, Bundoran, Tramore, Dingle and Lahinch and mountain bike events scheduled for Wexford, Roscrea, Carlow, Wicklow and Sligo.
