Škoda has finally tracked down the furry Yeti beast spotted across the UK in recent weeks. With the help of thousands of Yeti spotters, Škoda has found the furry but friendly beast and re-united him with his favourite car and namesake.
The trail of evidence that helped in tracking Yeti down can be found on http://www.yetispotting.com/, as well as on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. These sites have helped keep members of the public, and Škoda, aware of the furry Yeti's location over the summer.
Škoda is so happy with the outcome that it is offering a huge reward to Yeti spotters - the chance to win a Škoda Yeti vehicle of their own. Over the weekend of 12-13 September, one lucky person will win a new Škoda Yeti, just by spotting the car in one of the UK's major family attractions. Clues to help people find the Yeti's location can be found at http://www.yetispotting.com/ and on local radio in major UK cities.
Yeti Spotters will be impressed with great prices and Škoda's legendary high levels of specification. Combining the strengths of a traditional 4x4 with the practicality and low running costs of a hatchback, Yeti is a true crossover that will provide the best value in its class.
Those who spot Yeti can enter a prize draw to win a brand new Yeti, along with family passes to local attractions for runners up.
