Service expansion for Oxfordshire Porsche specialist Autofarm
BICESTER - With increased demand for its services, independent Porsche specialist Autofarm has further expanded its staff this month, hiring Anthony Wilds to take the role of service manager
“I have a history working in car parts for nearly 15 years now, and I knew Autofarm’s co-owner Steve Wood from my time racing,” says Wilds. “So when a position came up and he asked me if I wanted it I said ‘yes!’”
Son of British ex sportscar and F1 driver Mike Wilds - who raced Porsches throughout his career including an appearance at the Le Mans 24 Hours in a 935 in 1981 - Anthony has grown up a car enthusiast and will bring his passion to the day-to-day running of Autofarm. Wilds aims to bring his experience to expand Autofarm’s offering.
“The other side of it will come in the future. Steve and I hope to add a part to Autofarm that revolves around trackdays and coaching. I do a lot of instructing on track days for race drivers, and because I’ve done a lot with Porsche Club UK, we’re planning to offer a service around that to our customers.”
