Fans flock to Handy Motorsport launch event at T H White
Casting one eye to next year, a special event at the T H White Alfa Romeo dealership in Swindon this past Saturday attracted scores of fans who seized the opportunity to enjoy a Q&A session with Austin and Belcher, which was hosted by 1992 BTCC Champion and ITV4 commentator Tim Harvey.
Featuring the Alfa Romeo Giulietta showcar, which appeared live on ITV4 at the Rockingham race meeting last month where Handy Motorsport revealed the 2018 tie-up with the Alfa Romeo Dealer Council, the weekend’s event was a huge success.
T H White, a key team sponsor and part of the Dealer Council, has been instrumental in bringing the deal together and its Forest Park Road premises were packed out on Saturday as countless fans gathered – an indicator of the excitement surrounding the return of the Alfa brand to the BTCC.
“We all had a fantastic time on Saturday at T H White, the event was a massive success and it looks like we’ve certainly got plenty of people excited about the Alfa deal!”, commented Belcher, “We’re very grateful to Paul Doick at the dealership for his support with the event, and a big thank you to Tim Harvey for hosting the Q&A and bringing his great insight – especially as a former Alfa racer!”
