Former FIA World Touring Car Champion Rob Huff has forged a partnership as an official test and development driver for world-renowned sports and supercar tuners Litchfield Motors.
The Red Lodge based driver, who turned 35 on Christmas Day, will carry out the duties while competing in the 2015 FIA World Touring Car Championship in a Lada Vesta.
Established more than 15 years ago by Iain Litchfield, the Gloucestershire-based company originally made its name in the Japanese tuning market and is globally recognised as the authority in Nissan GT-R performance modifications.
It has continued growing year-on-year to become one of the most distinguished names in high performance car sales and tuning and Litchfield’s investment in the latest equipment and facilities, as well as highly skilled and experienced technicians, ensure it is able to perform at the very highest levels from its critically-acclaimed service and upgrade centre.
Huff will use his talents to fulfil a test and development role with Litchfield and have a hand in signing off many of the firm’s new chassis and powertrain conversions prior to sale, starting with the BMW M4.
“It’s brilliant to be able to announce a relationship with a partner who has a product that’s so close to my heart,” said Huff.
“While being a professional racing driver, I still enjoy performance development in road cars and even entrusted my own Nissan GT-R to Iain Litchfield, so I’m looking forward to working with Iain and his team of technicians to further develop Litchfield’s already fantastic reputation and products.
“The passion everybody at Litchfield has for the company’s products is brilliant and they have been a wonderful team to work with. We have a lot of fun while we are refining these packages.”
