SUBARU AND BRITISH VETERINARY ASSOCIATION TEAM UP TO FIND THE VET FACING THE TOUGHEST DRIVING CONDITIONS IN THE UK

Subaru and the British Veterinary Association have teamed up to find the vet with the toughest terrain to cross in the course of doing their job in the UK, and loan them a Subaru Outback for six months.

The competition runs from 20th October – 15th December and the launch coincides with the 2017 BVA In Practice CPD programme. Vets can enter the competition via the BVA community and share in 75 words or less why they have the toughest patch for consideration by our panel of judges.

Whether the challenge is inhospitable terrain, harsh weather or uncooperative patients the winner will be able to pit the Subaru Outback against these challenges and report back to the BVA community.

Subaru are expert in Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive combined with Boxer engines; together these give added grip, safety and also driving enjoyment. Outback comes equipped with these Subaru hallmarks and also comes with EyeSight, Subaru’s advanced collision avoidance technology.

Chris Hawken, Marketing Director, Subaru UK said “We are delighted to sponsor BVA’s In Practice CPD Programme for a second year, and are looking forward to involving the veterinary community in a real world showcase of our car’s extraordinary ability, demonstrating that not all 4-wheel drive vehicles are the same.”

Gudrun Ravetz, President, British Veterinary Association said “Being a vet is one of the most rewarding jobs you can do but, in whatever area of the profession you work, it is also one of the toughest. From the bustle of the lecture theatre to the precision of the laboratory our work can be pressurised and come with considerable responsibilities; from cats that bite to cows that kick, as much as we love them, our patients can be unpredictable and uncooperative. As vets we need tools we can rely on with absolute confidence to get the job done and our car is no exception. The Subaru Outback challenge is a great opportunity for a BVA member to put a top-end car to the sort of test only a vet can give it.”
