After putting its name to a Nuneaton Town stand ahead of the new season, Britannia Tyres has plenty to celebrate off the pitch too.
The local Nuneaton garage, only one mile away from the Liberty Way Stadium, is ensuring that people aren’t on a cliff edge with their cars this summer, much like The Italian Job’s Charlie Croker.
“We have one gentleman who brings in an original Austin Mini, it’s an absolute jaw-dropping car, probably the best-kept in Nuneaton.
“He’s a member of the Mini Club and they do long trips throughout Europe. It always feels like we’re preparing for The Italian Job when he swings by!”
Like the Michael Caine character, depot manager Terry Turrall and his team of seven are all well-known from the local area and are better known throughout the town than Nuneaton-born Arsenal midfielder Nigel Winterburn and famed director Ken Loach.
“You could ask anyone in the local area about my foreman! I bet there isn’t one person in Nuneaton who doesn’t know Dave because his Mom and Dad used to run the local pub!”
Joking aside, Terry admits that knowing local people on personal basis has really helped Britannia: “We always see the same faces and they recommend us to their friends, who return with their cars time and time again.”
“There’s always a friendly face at Britannia Tyres Nuneaton, whether you need some trustworthy advice on what to do with your tyres or help with a motoring dilemma.”

And a smiling face has helped Terry over his 11 years with Britannia Tyres, seeing him rise quickly to depot manager.
“I used to work at the Hinckley garage after working in the motorsport industry for many years. I think that experience with race cars has helped me at Britannia – with people carriers and supercars alike.”
And as people head off on holiday, whether it’s through Rome with precious gold, a people carrier full of suitcases or a caravan in tow, Britannia Tyres Nuneaton will be ready and waiting to ensure your summer is both sunny and safe.
