Holden earns Renaultsport racing stripes

Renault dealer Holden collected a special award this week after the dealership was officially recognised as a Renaultsport Specialist – making it one of only a select few in the UK to have earned the status.

The recognition was presented by Renault UK and now sees the Heigham Street dealership in Norwich offer its customers a dedicated Renaultsport centre, providing hot-hatchback fans with all their Renaultsport needs in one place.

Alongside the dealership's existing Renault services, motorists will be able to access all three award-winning Renaultsport models as well as call upon the expert knowledge and advice of Renaultsport sales specialist Ian Roshier, himself an enthusiast of the French brand's iconic performance arm.

Together with Ian, aftersales specialist Matt Buttle will help provide customers with a bespoke Renaultsport aftercare service handling all servicing, accessory and merchandise requests.

What's more, both Ian and Matt can be contacted direct via phone or e-mail by new or existing customers to help answer any general Renaultsport queries they may have or to receive expert advice on either past or present models.

Indeed, the popularity of the Renaultsport range is clear to see with last year's worldwide sales seeing an increase of 78pc on 2009 with UK dealers second only to France in terms of total global sales.

Ian, Renaultsport sales specialist at the Holden dealership, said: 'We're really looking forward to showing customers around the Renaultsport range as we know they're going to be just as impressed with them as we are... and the UK's motoring press for that matter.

'It helps having some great driving roads in Norfolk too, as well as Snetterton race circuit on your doorstep, allowing owners to experience the full potential of the Renaultsport range and how impressive they are both on the road and the race track.'

Renaultsport aftersales specialist Matt said: 'Our Renaultsport service extends right from the initial test-drive through to caring for your Renaultsport five, 10, 15 years from now. All Renaultsport models are highly-tuned machines requiring that expert touch and genuine Renault parts so our approved workshop caters for just that.'

Phil Miller, general sales manager at Holden Norwich, added: 'As part of our celebrations, we're inviting local Renaultsport owners – be it an original Renaultsport Spider to a brand new M�gane Renaultsport 250 – to drop by the dealership for a free, no-appointment, safety check for their car.'
