Swans hand over "Pink Ferrari" keys in support of SwansAid

19th May 2014

Swansea City have handed over the keys to the "Pink Ferrari" in aid of charity.

The club's competition forfeit vehicle, signed by all of the Swans players, was sold to supporter Leigh Evans to help raise funds for SwansAid.

The proud new owner, who will be putting his new purchase on show at Enterprise Tyres in Neath, picked up the Suzuki Samurai from Landore training ground after the Swans bid farewell to the flower speckled car.

Throughout this season, the iconic vehicle has been driven by a host of Swansea players, including the likes of Ben Davies, Pablo Hernandez and Chico Flores, after they competed against each other in a weekly crossbar challenge contest.

The loser of each competition was tasked with the job of taking care of the Pink Ferrari for one week.

Along with driving the car into training and to any home game for the week, the loser had to modify the car and repair any problems before handing the keys over to the next unfortunate losing participant.

The competition was the brainchild of physio Richard Buchanan, who came up with the idea in December last year.

"The competition has gone down a storm with supporters this year," said Buchanan after handing over the keys.

"We've had some great fun this season, and it's fantastic that the money we have raised from selling the Pink Ferrari is going to a great cause.

"It's sad to see it go, but we know the new owner will take good care of it.

"It's now a case of thinking of a new competition idea for next season. This year's will take some beating!"
