Northern Ireland’s leading Volkswagen retailer have confirmed their support to the current British Touring Car Champion Colin Turkington for the 2015 season.
Colin is out to defend his BTCC title this year in a Volkswagen CC run by the Buntingford based ‘Team BMR Racing’. Sitting second in the Championship at the moment, Turkington has already claimed his first race win with the VW and heads to Oulton Park this weekend for rounds 10, 11 and 12 of the 30 round Championship.
Established in 1953 and a part of the prestigious Agnew Group, the Agnew Van Centre is the longest established Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Franchise in Northern Ireland and part of the authorised Volkswagen Van Centre network. Today they have announced their partnership with the double British Touring Champion.
Explaining the decision to tie the Volkswagen retailer and VW driver together, Sales Director Sydney Pentland commented:
“Here at Isaac Agnew we have been following Colin’s career with great interest for many years. As soon as we heard the news of Colin’s move to the Volkswagen team, I was keen to put a deal together. We pride ourselves on quality in every area, and Colin is a quality driver with a professional attitude and appealing brand. Having Isaac Agnew Van Centre positioned alongside his BTCC campaign is fantastic for us. I’m really pleased to confirm our support and we are looking forward to the BTCC experience.”
Delighted to welcome another Northern Irish company to the BTCC, Colin is eager to commence his new role as ambassador for Isaac Agnew Volkswagen.
“One thing that excited me about the move to Team BMR and the Volkswagen family was the potential for new opportunities. Getting involved with the Agnew Van Centre is a perfect example of this. The Isaac Agnew brand is incredibly strong with an exciting array of services, projects and initiatives. I am thrilled to put this together and I know the partnership is one that we will both really enjoy and get plenty of value from.”
