Cullen Grace and his Kia Sorento

We’re proud to sponsor Cullen Grace. Born and bred in Timaru, he’s a great role model for the younger generation and we’re thrilled to support him with the use of a Kia Sorento. 

He recently popped in to pick up his new Kia Sorento and it was great to have the chance to catch up with him. We’ve previously provided Cullen with a Kia Sportage, so to say he’s a Kia fan is an understatement!

Visiting Timaru Boys High School

Cullen also recently attended the Timaru Boys High School Rugby Team awards night, where gave a motivating speech to the next generation of players. He was the XV team captain at TBHS in his youth, so it was great for the team to hear from a previous student and player.

“He made a very good motivational speech. Some good words to the players! Do not change who you are, it’s the small things that get you the results – being early for practice, doing the 100 passes before the practice, doing extra runs before practice” – Johan Smit, Dealer Principle
