"Although I enter competitions regularly I have never won anything before so I am really looking forward to driving back to Wales in it and showing it off to my friends and colleagues at the South Wales Fire and Rescue Service.", he added.

"Wow, what a month for the newly launched Peugeot RCZ.  It's already a multi-award winner and was rapturously received at launches up and down the country, and across the world.  Demand for RCZ has also been unprecedented, so the new models will be a welcome extension to the range.  Matthew was certainly ‘the chosen one' in our RCZ Facebook ‘It Chooses You' campaign, so I imagine he drove off to Wales with a grin as wide as the Severn Bridge!", said Jon Goodman.
