My interests include mainly cars, Subarus in particular of course, with a keen passion in their rally heritage and a strong respect for the drivers skill involved! Also many other things, mostly outdoor, such as off -trail hikes, archery or river exploration on a kayak.

Mark Twigg - Managing Director
I started out in the motor trade when I left school in 1976 working for Kennings Ltd serving my time in the body shop and moved on to vehicle technician, where I must say was one of the best times of my life. When I was 19 I bought a Triumph stag I rebuilt it from top to bottom, lots of joy and dedication was given to this car (worth every penny and made me smile where ever I went)
Things went bad for British Leyland in 1982 and redundancy was on the cards so I volunteered and went out with a few quid in my pocket confident I would be ok. 6 months later they closed the doors anyway.
1982 / 1983 I worked for T C Harrisons I did not like the job there so I moved on quickly.
1983 I started working for myself buying/ repairing/and selling on cars
1985 I started a property business buying my 1st house and building my portfolio and renting them out while still doing my cars.
1996 I started M T Cars from my home; I bought my 1st car lot and 2nd one in 2002 going from strength to strength.
in 2012 I was struck with the big C (don't want to go there again) after recovering early 2014 I wanted a challenge and along came Subaru it was just what I needed to get my mojo back and get the business moving ahead again.
We are now also a Great Wall dealer we went live from the 1st December 2014 so if we can help in any way please feel free to contact me.
In 2016 I was up for another challenge so i contacted SsangYong UK to arrange a meeting as I knew they was looking for another dealer in the PE1 Area, so the meeting went well and after a couple of months and having done all the checks I received a letter stating that they would love for MTC to join the network, proud and very excited here we are again with another string to our bow.
It's coming to the end of 2019 now and what a year its been, Subaru is voted 3rd best dealership of 2019 and we have the new E-Boxer hybrids to look forward too. Bring on the next challenge.
