Polestar and Nicola Adams in new partnership

Double Olympic gold medallist Nicola Adams and Swedish electric performance car brand Polestar have announced an official partnership.

The 39-year-old’s first Polestar experience was at the 2021 Goodwood Festival of Speed during a passenger ride up the famous hill climb in an experimental version of the 100% electric Polestar 2.

Now, as a member of the Polestar family, Nicola’s taken delivery of a Polestar 2 Long range Dual motor. The 100% electric performance fastback is capable of travelling up to 299 miles on a single charge and accelerating from 0-60mph in 4.5 seconds.

The partnership cements Polestar’s focus on performance, while bringing sustainable personal mobility to a new audience via the retired boxer’s following.

Nicola recently launched her own documentary film, Lioness, which tracks her inspirational journey to becoming the first female Olympic boxing champion. A common theme in the film is the sexism she faced as a young female athlete.

Polestar hopes the partnership “will foster further opportunities to stand together for a more sustainable, equitable and innovative future”.

“I am passionate about making sustainable choices and doing my bit to help the environment and tackle climate change, starting with what I’m driving,” said the former Strictly Come Dancing star.

“Being 100% electric, the Polestar 2 ticks that box perfectly. It also doesn’t hurt that the design is sleek, it features the latest tech such as Google Assistant, and it’s the perfect size for myself, Ella and our dog.”

The equal rights champion added: “I am so excited about this partnership, hopefully it will inspire more people to go electric.”

PORSCHE TAYCAN REVEALED AS NEW FORMULA E SAFETY CAR

Porsche’s first all-electric sports car is the new safety car in the innovative electric racing series, Formula E.

The vehicle will celebrate its racetrack debut at the opening round of the new season on January 28-29 in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia.

Designed to be more than just the Formula E safety car, the striking Porsche Taycan Turbo S samples the liveries of all 11 teams competing in the championship, as well as the colours of the FIA and Formula E, while the number 22 acknowledges the performance of the 22 drivers contesting the series this season.

PORSCHE TAYCAN REVEALED AS NEW FORMULA E SAFETY CAR

“We’re proud that Formula E has entrusted a Porsche with this task – one that is important for the safety of its drivers,” says Thomas Laudenbach, Vice President Porsche Motorsport.

“With the Taycan Turbo S as the official safety car, we’re making an important contribution to track safety and also underlining the importance of Formula E for Porsche Motorsport.”

The conversion of the Porsche Taycan Turbo S into a safety car required the installation of a roll cage and racing bucket seats with six-point seatbelts as well as wire harnesses for the safety car lighting and the Marelli Logger System. Flashing lights were integrated into the bumpers.

Helen Bartz, from Caerphilly in South Wales, has won her dream car worth £14,000 in Motorpoint’s national ‘Win A Car’ competition.

The retired nurse entered the competition back in late 2021. It ran for seven weeks and was timed to roll out during Motorpoint’s sponsorship of ITV’s popular Sunday night game show, Sitting On A Fortune.

“It was a complete surprise and a bit of shock,” said Helen. “I could not quite believe it when the Motorpoint lady rang me!

“I’ve really enjoyed picking my winning car down at the Newport Motorpoint branch – it’s a Fiesta in Moondust Silver which I love, and I’ve already given the car a name – Lucky!”

Camping is among the favourite pastimes for many people in Australia today. This is why it is no longer too strange to see individuals or families sitting outside or inside a camp tent somewhere in the open. But then, as much as Australians like to camp in the open, many people are still scared of having reptiles and other crawling wildlife interrupt their fun adventure.

Thankfully, though, there is a solution to this problem. With roof top tents, you do not have to worry about crawling wildlife anymore when you go out to camp. Moreover, we will review some of the best roof top tents for your 4×4 in this article. Read on for more information.

Best Roof Tops for Aussie 4×4s

The Grand Tourer MKII

This particular roof top tent offers a roomy, comfortable, and easy to set up space for lovers of adventure who wish to sit out and have a good time in nature. It also comes with a lightweight aluminium cover and sturdy walls made of rip-stop fabric and watertight seals around its entrances and roof. Getting the tent for your 4×4 adventure is something you will not regret.

The Dacha Panorama 2

If what you are looking out for is a Darche roof top tent, then Panorama 2 is an excellent option to go for. This tent provides ample space for campers when spread out on top of your truck. However, it is merely 29 cm when the cover is on. This reduces the drag and makes it better suited for harsh terrain.

The Canyon Off-Road Rooftop Tent Series

It is no longer news that the Canyon Off-Road brand has made a name in the off-road camping industry. With several top-quality camping equipment and products in the market today, the brand has become one to reckon with in the industry. It offers a series of hard shell roof top tents to suit various off-road situations, especially in Australia. The best choice you might make today is to select from these comfortable and durable tent options for your 4×4 truck.

Conclusion

Finding a perfect roof top tent for your 4×4 can be a tricky task. Thankfully, though, this article has reviewed some of the best available options to make it easier for you.
