Nielsen Challenge Event #2

Two weeks ago we began the You Can't Beat Our Nielsen Challenge, a month-long series of challenges between myself and 3 of Sporting Kansas City's best. During the challenge, Aristocrat Motors has pledged to donate $1 for every Facebook fan added to the Aristocrat Motors Facebook page.

For those who followed along or watched the YouTube Video, I pretty easily took out CJ Sapong in an intense round of go-karting, where I ended up on top. CJ spun out on the first lap and never caught me.

Tomorrow won't be so easy. I have agreed to take on veteran striker Teal Bunbury in a 5 goal penalty kick shootout at Sporting KC's practice facility. We will each take 5 shots on a practice goalie and all I can do at this point is hope for the best.

Wine, Wings, and Wheels

What goes with private planes and exclusive parties? Why, amazing performance automobile of course. In conjunction with Cessna, we were proud to display some of our best performance automobiles at Wine, Wings, and Wheels, a party at Johnson County Executive Airport.

On display for view was the entire new lineup of Cessna aircraft, as well as several classic automobiles. We brought the new Porsche 911, Maserati GranTurismo, and the Jaguar XJL. However, no hangar party would be complete without the car with wings of its own: The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Gullwing.

Guests toured the planes, spoke with aircraft representatives and had the opportunity check out some spectacular cars. We look forward to participating next year!

2012 Art of the Car Concours

Last Sunday we once again had the privilege to sponsor The Art of the Car Concours at The Kansas City Art Institute. Over 200 classics showed up to what has come to be known the greatest classic car show in Kansas City.

Despite temperatures approaching 100 degrees, hundreds of people came out to see these amazing vehicles, which included several Palm Beach Concours D'Elegance winners.

All proceeds to the event benefitted The Kansas City Art Institute and we were happy to provide support.

Land Rover Merriam Off Road Trip

Last week we had the opportunity to take over 40 of our Land Rover owners on a trip to Kansas Rocks Off-Road Park in Ft. Scott, KS. We met at Aristocrat Motors on Saturday at 7:30 am for a hot breakfast provided by Alloy Wheel & Tire Repair, then set off on a beautiful caravan of new and old Land Rover and Range Rover vehicles.

Once we arrived at the park it was time for a quick safety meeting and overview, and then it was off to the trails. We took groups of 5-6 vehicles through the different trails negotiating mud ruts, high inclines, rock crawls, and some very steep descents.

We also spectated at Carnage Canyon, an especially technical rock crawling area reserved for the most modified off-road vehicles. A couple of our Land Rover Defender and Discovery owners, who have heavily modified their vehicles for the task, took on the crawl successfully. See more of them at .

The day was a blast, allowing us to truly experience the capability of Land Rover vehicles. Special thanks to the volunteers at Kansas Rocks Off Road Park , who did a great job guiding us through the course.

You Can't Beat Our Nielsen!

We are proud to announce the You Can't Beat Our Nielsen Challenge, where our very own Social Media Representative Kris Nielsen takes on three of Sporting Kansas City's finest players in a series of challenges to raise money and awareness for cancer research.

For every Facebook Fan that Aristocrat Motors gains in the next three weeks, $1 will be put into a prize pool going to Sunflowers to Roses, a charity bike race that raises money to fight cancer.

Each week there will be a different challenge with the first two events each equaling one point and the final event worth 2 points.

Event one: Head to Head Racing on Gran Turismo

Kris takes on CJ Sapong in a round of Gran Turismo (Playstation 3) on the Aristocrat Motors showroom floor. They will be going head to head in identical cars around a track to be picked at random. The vehicles? Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG sports cars of course!

Event two: Goal Shootout

All-star MLS offensive player Teal Bunbury will shoot 3 penalty shots as Kris tries to block them. Kris will get 3 shots in return, with the overall score deciding the event.

Event three: Nielsen Cook-off

The second most famous Nielsen in Kansas City will take on Sporting KC's "White Puma" Jimmy Nielsen in a cook off. Dish and judges are TBA.

Make sure to join the Aristocrat Motors Facebook fan base to follow along with the action, and to help us raise as much money as possible to fight cancer!
