Garmin UK set us a challenge: in a very crowded marketplace, position its ultra-high-quality, feature-filled dash cams front of mind with key media, retailers and consumers.
We really had to stand out from your usual dash cam coverage, so we had an idea: what if we really put Garmin’s dash cams through their paces – on a rally track.
We created the ultimate, adrenaline-filled product test event for ten tech and automotive journalists and key retailers and let them experience the quality of Garmin’s dash cams behind the wheel of a Subaru Impreza and Mitsubishi Evo.
To share the experience with Garmin’s consumers, we let racing driver and journalist Rebecca Jackson test out the products on the track, creating high-octane video footage distributed via brand social channels, that also caught the attention of Garmin’s teams across EMEA and the US.
