Trident holds Mufti for Michael day

Friday, 20 October 2017 at 12.40PM

Only a few cakes left

We are today, Friday 20th October, holding a Mufti for Michael day in remembrance of our founder Michael Roberts and to raise money for the Woking Hospice, who cared for Michael so well towards the end of his life.

Thank you to all our team for supporting the event, and especially to Alex Russell, who kindly volunteered to bake cakes for a cake sale. Sadly there are very few left now (see photo opposite)!

In all we believe that we will have collected around £350 for this wonderful cause today.

Thank you to all our customers today for tolerating our questionable sartorial choices and especially to those who decided to contribute to the appeal.

Our second 2017 Civic Type R handover

Thursday, 12 October 2017 at 12.42PM

Today we handed over our second new 2017 Civic Type R to a delighted Mrs Sara Renshaw. An experienced car buyer, but new to Trident, Mrs Renshaw was very complimentary about the service that she received from her sales executive - Paul Barnett.

Rarely has there been so much excitement about a new model, but the 2017 Civic Type R is a truly extraordinary machine. As Inside Lane magazine said:

But the great thing about it is that you can hoon to your heart's content in this car and then ease off, slow it down, go back into Comfort Mode, and take the kids to school, or go shopping, or go to work. That's the beauty of a hot hatchback isn't it, that you can have your cake and eat it. You can have the Nürburgring lap time record holder and still use it as a daily driver.

Sunday saw the return of the Woking Rotary Swimathon to the Woking Pool in the Park for its 10th Year, once again sponsored by Trident Honda in Ottershaw. The event was inaugurated by the Mayor of Woking, Councillor Graham Cundy, who very kindly started the event and handed out the first round of medals.

The event, which has been sponsored by Trident since it was started in 2008, has so far raised over £110,000 for local Woking charities.

Richard Roberts, Managing Director of Trident, said:

It's great to be involved with the Woking Swimathon again this year. It is always a fabulous day, that is fun for all those that take part, whilst raising much needed funds for some great local causes.

Last Thursday we were delighted to hand over our first 2017 Civic Type R, which looked absolutely stunning in Championship White. It could not have gone to a better home, as its new owner - Mr Tony Raymond, has now purchased the last three generations of Type R from Trident.

This new generation of Type R has the additional feature of having a Comfort Mode, making it a much more comfortable car for everyday use; whilst being even more capable on the track when in Race Mode than even the extreme outgoing Type R.

In the words of BBC Top Gear's Jason Barlow:

We're going to stick our bits on the block and name this the new hot hatch king.
