Stranded Frome dad wins dream car

Story posted on

AFROME family separated during the Covid-19 pandemic, were recently surprised with the news that they have won their dream car and £10,000.

Father-of-two, Rob Miggels, works between the UK and Jeddah, Saudia Arabia, where he has been stranded since February, unable to fly home because of Coronavirus restrictions.

During a video call with his wife Bo and their twin sons, Rob was surprised with the news that he has won a Land Rover Defender worth more than £55,000, plus £10,000 in cash from dream car competition, BOTB.

Rob said, “I was in complete shock. I’ve been playing BOTB since the late 90s when I stumbled across a Ferrari in Heathrow Airport.

“I haven’t been home since the start of February and it’s been really difficult. Just seeing my two boys’ faces light up when the car was outside the house was unreal. A really emotional, happy moment to share as a family.” 

Rob has no idea when the borders will open and when he’ll be able to fly home to pick up his new wheels, the sought-after Defender 90 P300 SE. 

Rob said, “As soon as I’m able to come home – we’ll be taking the Defender on a real adventure. 

“I chose it for that exact reason – for our holidays across Europe. My wife, Bo, is from Hungary so we often drive there, as well as to Austria and France – I just can’t wait to do that in this new car.”
