Touring Cars collaborated Desperately Seeking Santa’ Christmas Show

Partnership with Studio Ramsay in November 2020

Touring Cars collaboration with ‘Gordon, Gino and Fred: Desperately Seeking Santa’ Christmas Show


Gordon Ramsay, Gino D'Acampo, and Fred Sirieix visited Finland in November 2020, to film the ‘Desperately Seeking Santa’ Christmas special for ITV. 

During this extraordinary culinary Christmas adventure in the Nordics, Gordon, Gino, and Fred explored the magical Finnish Lapland and sought seasonal spirit in their hilarious way. Their journey, throughout Lapland, surrounded by snowy forests and under the dark blue sky where only stars and northern lights shone on their road, was made safely and conveniently with a Christmas-decorated premium motorhome. Touring Cars, one of the oldest camper rental service providers in Europe, was selected to be the partner to provide a suitable vehicle with additional accessories and festive decorations for this TV project. 

We are always ready to serve global organizations and meet their commercial demands on a tight schedule. In this ITV Christmas Special filming project ‘Desperately Seeking Santa’ our camper played an essential role. As Touring Cars is a European-wide motorhome holiday service provider and vehicle sales organization, we were able to supply the TV team with many options, to get the most practical model for the shooting and to choose the best vehicle interior visuals that look the most attractive through a TV camera, not to mention the best possible and safe motorhome with easy driveability and modern functions for a convenient and carefree road trip in winter conditions, states Miia Mustonen, Marketing Manager from Touring Cars Franchise chain.

‘The German-made Hobby camper was furnished, decorated, and delivered according to the wishes and the agenda of the TV crew. Additionally, as our local Arctic Circle rental station in Rovaniemi is currently run by an entrepreneur who has a long experience in tourism in Lapland, especially in adventure travels in the Nordics and Russia, we were able to provide a special added value to the TV channel in this project’, continues Mustonen from the head office in Finland. 

Touring Cars highlighted the historic fact that film and TV projects have been written into the foundations of this organization since its establishment in Finland in 1982. Legendary movie Gorky Park, where Hollywood star Lee Marvin played the leading role, was one of the first international rental customers to whom Touring Cars provided an individually equipped motorhome to use as a break and dressing room while filming the movie in Helsinki.
