Newly-weds toast favourite car

Newly-weds toast favourite car

When Steph and Pete tied the knot to the sound of The Chain, theme tune of BBC`s F1 motor-racing coverage, they had a special car in mind.

The SEAT Leon Cupra K1 may not set tifosi pulses racing, but newly-married Mr and Mrs Janes love it to bits.

Both arrived in one for the ceremony at the historic Goodwood racing circuit in West Sussex, and left in one for their two-week honeymoon touring England and Scotland.

The cake was in the shape of, well, you guessed it, and highlight of the reception was a giant Scalextric competition featuring miniature SEAT flagships.

Says Steph: "We both love our Cupra K1 so much that it just seemed natural to make it a part of our wedding ceremony."

According to the SEAT website: "The Leon is more than just a pretty face, its widely-stretched track and wheelbase offer smooth driving in the city and exhilaration on the open road."

They'll drink to that.
