We truly love motorsport and this runs through the heart of the company. We take great pride in our preparation for races (both car and driver) and take great enjoyment in winning races and championships, whether competing ourselves or instructing/coaching other drivers.

We have been ARDS licenced instructors for over 20 years and involved in motorsport for many years.

Away from the track we are never far away from a competition car or a sponsorship proposal. We are proud of our achievements on and off the track and look forward to helping you with yours in due course.
