Visitors to this year's Mercedes-Benz National Dressage Championships (Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire 25th - 28th September) will have the unique opportunity of being able to purchase a new Mercedes at the event.

In an unprecedented move, the retail division of the National Championships' title sponsor, Mercedes-Benz, will be attending on the Saturday and Sunday of the show with several demonstration A-Class, C-Class and M-Class models.

Equipped with detailed product knowledge, staff from the Mercedes-Benz Birmingham group of retail outlets will be on hand to demonstrate the latest from the marque's stable. Information on the cost to change to a Mercedes-Benz including a valuation on current vehicles will be available as part of the service on offer.

Visitors, who will have the opportunity to test drive the vehicles on the open road, will be able to secure a purchase at the championships.

For those wishing to place a special order, the normal factory order process will apply and delivery times will vary based on the choice of model and specification.

Marketing Manager of Mercedes-Benz Retail, Miles Moorhouse, described the move as being a unique opportunity: "This initiative enables us to take our products to a discerning audience without our customers having to come and find us - rather like taking the mountain to Mohammed" he explained.

Those thinking about changing to a Mercedes-Benz should bring their drivers' licences, cheque book or credit cards along to this year's championships. The National Champion may not be the only one claiming a new Mercedes at this year's event.
