Oulton Park's Cadillac man makes dream come true

Wednesday, September 14 2016

Oulton Park teamed up with radio station Heart FM to give a cancer patient a ride to remember in a Cadillac recently.

After her diagnosis, Lynne Matischok wrote a message on her Facebook page expressing her desire to ride in a Cadillac. One of her friends contacted Heart FM, and after a call for help to Oulton Park, Circuit Manager Simon Bonser quickly located a car, owned by Frank Spicer from the venue maintenance team.

Upon hearing the news, Lynne said: "I've always wanted to go in a Cadillac. I can't wait to see it, I have been trying to think what colour it would be. I can't imagine it will be pink!"

Whilst not quite pink, a red Cadillac appeared on the pit straight, and owner Frank took Lynne for a guided tour of the picturesque Cheshire circuit. The big American car proved to be just as good as she'd imagined.

'Well that is a dream come true," Lynne said. "It was so comfy, like a sofa on wheels. Frank's Cadillac is pure luxury it is so plush and shiny. I have had an absolutely fantastic time, it really is a dream come true. From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much for arranging this. I will take these memories with me."

Frank added: "It has been a pleasure spending time with Lynne and her family - I wish her all the very best, she is such a lovely lady. She certainly does love a Cadillac!"

Circuit Manager Simon commented: "We were so glad to be involved in making Lynne's wish of driving in a Cadillac come true. It was a lucky coincidence when we were contacted by Heart FM that Frank, one of long term maintenance workers had a beautifully restored Cadillac that was ideal for the task.

"It was super to see how excited she was when Frank drove his Cadillac round the corner where it had been hiding, I really think she had no idea what we had planned up until that point. Everyone at Oulton Park wishes Lynne well for the future."
