BTCC star Allam opens second HiQ outlet

HiQ franchisee fast fit network is celebrating a major boost in its ambitious expansion plans after an existing franchisee put pen to paper on his second Surrey centre.

Former British Touring Car Championship star Jeff Allam is opening his second HiQ-branded outlet in Leatherhead, Surrey.

The move comes just six months after opening his first outlet in Dorking.

Allam, who used to star in Britain’s premier motor racing series in Vauxhalls and BMWs, is strengthening his partnership with HiQ – the official sponsors of the BTCC’s Team Championship.

He said: “Our first impressions of working with HiQ have been extremely good. They are flexible, supportive and offer a range of support for us, which has been invaluable.

“Leatherhead was always a location that interested us and we are confident of making the business a big success.

“We have increased staff numbers by two, have again invested a good sum of money in the site and are hopeful that motorists will be enticed to our four-bay store.”
