AMT, one of the UK’s most prestigious, dynamic and speciali vehicle rental, leasing and sales groups, will continue with the partnership for a second season with 23 year old, fans favourite Bobby Thompson driving the #19 TPC Audi S3 in Britain’s premier domestic race series.
“I’m delighted to be able to bring the AMT Group back to the Kwik Fit MSA British Touring Car Championship again this season” says Thompson. “AMT are a prestigious brand and see the benefits of being associated with myself and the most prestigious championship in the country. Having them as a crucial part of our team this year will be a major boost as I look for my first BTCC podium finish.
In addition to having a significant presence on Thompson’s familiar #19, AMT will also provide the Essex based driver personal road transport again for the 2020 season with one of their highly sought after Range Rover Velars.
“I was invited up to the AMT Group headquarters earlier in the year where they presented me with a road car for the year. The long drive to some of the Northern tracks this year is going to more bearable and I will arrive a lot more relaxed” continued Thompson, who is one of the current crop of BRDC Rising Stars and also works as a fully qualified ARDS Race Instructor. “Everyone likes to drive in style and thanks to AMT I will be driving in style on and off the track.”
Jonathan Pearce, Head of Marketing for AMT Group commented: “To be supporting Bobby for a second year is testament to the relationship we have built. Having Bobby carry the AMT brand has been hugely beneficial. We have been able to reach a huge audience through the race season and even during the don season we have been able to work together positively. We know Bobby is a hugely talented driver so the opportunity to support him at his new team was an easy decision for us and we are confident that, in his new car, we will see him challenging much further up the grid week in, week out and we can’t wait to celebrate his first podium when it happens!”
