Chess Tournament Just Over Four Weeks Away

When choosing a place to host a chess tournament, the local Skoda dealership would not necessarily be the first venue that came to mind…..or would it?


The earliest form of the game that’s now called chess can be dated back to India in the sixth century. Like the modern game, this predecessor, called chaturanga (or catur) was played on an 8x8 grid and featured pieces generally similar to those of modern chess.


Coincidentally, although the first primitive wheel dates back to 4000 BC it is rumoured that the very first four-wheel cart was invented in the British Isles around about the same time as chess, so there is a tenuous connection after all.


The main reason that Lightcliffe  is holding its very first chest tournament in the dealership is to continue to build its ties with the local community. While computer game time is generally limited by parents Chess has always been seen as a worthy pastime and encouraged for young children


Chess has also seen a huge increase in popularity during lockdown, so we are hoping that the tournament on Saturday 2nd July is the first of many.


On the day we will also have all our new models on display so for those of you who have yet to discover this wonderful brand all our sales executives will be there to help in anyway that they can. 


We are also encouraging all our customers to spread the word to any perspective under 16 chess fan and for all interested parties the entry process can be accessed here:


So 4 Wheel Carts and Chess have been around for 1400 years, and Skodas for 100 years….its high time we joined them up!

Clare James Automotive Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allow Clare James Automotive Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.
We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes Volkswagen Financial Services. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to Volkswagen Financial Services, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and Volkswagen Financial Services also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms, and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
