Here at Autobrite Direct, it’s no secret that we have octane in our bloodstreams! All of the staff identify as true petrol heads. When we aren’t helping the world to keep their pride and joys looking their absolute best, we love nothing more than to follow motorsport in its many forms. BTCC is one of our huge passions and it is with great honour and pride that we can finally announce that Autobrite Direct has strengthened our deal to be title partners with Team-HARD Racing for the 2020 BTCC Season!
Through this partnership, Autobrite Direct has become part of the official BTCC entry name as well as having a major presence on the all-new and improved Team HARD Volkswagen CC’s. Autobrite Direct worked with Team HARD. Racing in 2018 and 2019 and during this time we have worked very closely with the team to build a great relationship. Together we also created Team HARD. STUFF – a collection of detailing products designed and manufactured by Autobrite Direct but featuring the Team HARD branding.
In November of 2019 Team, Hard Racing became an official stockist of the Autobrite Direct range of detailing products for the Kent region, Their great new premises now features a walk-in store where you can purchase both Autobrite Direct and Team Hard products! Pay the guys a visit!
Being part of the BTCC with exposure on national television is invaluable for us at Autobrite Direct as we seek to expand and grow even more through 2020 and beyond! Autobrite Direct is already a market leader in car care and working alongside one of the best teams in motorsport we hope to flourish together to blow the competition out of the water in both of our fields.
Team Hard Racing owner Tony Gilham said “It was a real eye-opener for me when I went to see the stunning new premises and shop and I can’t tell you how impressed I was with the way the day went. The products speak for themselves and after talking to many people on the day (Sunday) it is very clear that Autobrite is fast becoming a heavyweight in their industry and a major force in the market. Walking around the shop, I was amazed by the product range and whole professionalism of the business, and to agree this deal for 2019/2020 is another proud moment for the team as we look to build on what has already been a great partnership. A huge year ahead for us both and as always to do it with like-minded people is a very exciting prospect.”
Mark Moss added, “It has been very busy for us in the 12 months since the opening of our car care superstore and, after speaking with Tony and the team as well as all the guys at Autobrite, we decided that renewing our partnership for 2020 was too good an opportunity to miss and we are all very much looking forward to it. To see our name and logo on the BTCC grid is a very proud moment and to do it with a team that we have been working so closely with within recent months makes it even better as we both continue to expand our operations.” We are incredibly excited about the next 12 months with Team HARD. Racing as we hope to further our partnership with the team. For now, we are very much looking forward to the start of the season and we wish the team the very best of luck. #gohardorgohome #becauselooksareeverything #teamhardstuff.
