Jack is a world class player and he now represents a world class product in Amarok.

"In 2018, Amarok was the fastest growing model in the Irish pick-up segment and 2019 has started the same with huge demand for this exceptional vehicle. Jack has a long-standing link to the building and construction industry which is father was involved in and with the Amarok V6 being particularly popular with this segment in Ireland, it strengthens the partnership even further."
