Shane Warne and Liz Hurley were the glamorous hosts of a fundraising cricket day for both Australian and British Children in Need. Guests were treated to a 20 over game between England and Australia featuring players both past and present ahead of the 2013 Ashes Series. A place in each Team was also auctioned through National Newspapers and awarded to the highest bidder and what a story they will have to tell their friends when they arrive home.
The beautiful Liz Hurley, an English rose if ever there was one arrived at Cirencester Park in Sixt style with her fiancee, the bright eyed and handsome big blonde that is Shane Warne. Stunning, from tip to toe, it’s no surprise that Liz Hurley bowled everybody over right from the start and for anyone who is not familiar with Mr Warne’s work…. Shane Warne was once the stuff of nightmares for English batsmen who for many painful years were unable to play his legendary brand of spin. The “King of Spin” as he was and still is known, was responsible for taking 708 Test wickets. The last of which was the wicket of Freddie Flintoff, stumped by Adam Gilchrist in Sydney following Australia’s 5-0 Ashes whitewash of England in 2007. Thankfully, after which, the menace that was the genius of spin Mr Shane Warne, called it a day and retired from Test Cricket.

The concept of small families and small cars is ruling the world, now. This concept can be fairly justified by the fact that MINI took off the roof from its hatchback to come up with the convertible, and Fiat followed suit by adding the 500 C to its line-up. It was just a matter of time before Citroen decided to add DS3 Cabrio to its range of cars. The DS3 follows a somewhat similar approach that Fiat followed, thereby keeping the B and C pillars of the car in the right place, and adding a canvas roof that is capable of reclining completely, offering a well-performing engine and a good handling mechanism.
The cool French styling and the fully equipped DStyle, DSign and the DSport trim levels add more charm to the DS3 Cabrio. An excellent car for our customers, so make sure you take one for a spin and Hire DS3 Cabrio with Sixt now!
