Former Grand Prix driver and television presenter Tiff Needell has joined forces with automotive group Hendy to be the ambassador for its Performance and Sports Car division.

Tiff, who has appeared in a wide range of TV shows and is now a key presenter for Lovecars on YouTube, will be involved in a variety of activities for Hendy Performance.

They include creating videos to showcase the performance and sports car side of the business as well as personal appearances.

Mark Busby, Hendy Commercial Director, said: “We are thrilled to have such a well-known and respected motoring name to be our latest ambassador.

“Tiff’s background in sports cars, competitive racing and the media make him the perfect person to join forces with in 2020.”

Tiff, who collected a brand new Jaguar XF Sportbrake from Hendy Performance, said he was looking forward to the new collaboration and being involved with Hendy.

He added: “The company has a great heritage when it comes to selling sports cars and performance vehicles and the combination of the cars it has for sale and experience in the workshops and in supplying a wide range of performance parts is second to none.

“2020 is shaping up to be an amazing year for Hendy and I’m proud to be involved as much as possible.”

Hendy Performance and Sports Cars offers a wide range of models for sale together with dedicated Performance workshops.

It runs a range of track days and popular open days for clubs and organisations to showcase their performance cars.

The division has also been instrumental in creating one-off performance cars for customers whether that is increasing power or incorporating the very latest in bodykits.
