Droitwich coach company on road to victory with third international win

Lorna Morris 25th Sep, 2017

A DROITWICH coach company is celebrating after one of its coaches won a international award for the third year in a row.

Mystic Isle Travel entered its Mercedes Tourismo coach, with driver Mark Harper, at the prestigious ShowBus International 2017 at Donington on Sunday (September 17) which saw the vehicle come on top in the ‘Best in Class’ category.

The Friar Street company has four Mercedes coaches and has offered tours across the UK and various theatre trips for the past 21 years.

Winning the accolade every year since 2015 with the same coach and driver, the annual competition is a chance for the best and most enthusiastic coach operaters to show off their vehicles.

Company owner Kevin Legg is sure the coach will be entered next year as well, he said: “It is unbelievable to win, we are over the moon.

“To win best in class for three consecutive years is something that is worth shouting about.

“The vehicle is a very fine example of a working coach and is not one that has been taken off the road to prepare for the event.

“Our coach returned from Ireland on Friday, was tidied up in the normal manner on Saturday and was presented for judging on Sunday.

“The standard set by Mark which gave him the top spot in the show is presented every week of the year for our customers.

“It is a beautiful coach.”
