We currently run around 15 cars on events mainly based in the UK and Ireland although we have extended as far as Barbados and Jamaica.
However it doesn’t end there! In 2012 we won the British historic championship running the Ford Escort Mk 1 of Julian Reynolds taking 7 wins out of 7 Another notable victory was when Gary Jennings hired an S14 spec Subaru and took it to victory on the Donegal International Rally. The first car of this kind to win an International rally!
The owner of the company, Melvyn Evans has had vast amounts of success over the years and has rallied Subaru’s for 10 years. Over the years he has built up his knowledge of the cars and is now the main reason behind the company’s thriving success. In 2010 Melvyn was the first Welshman outside of Ireland to win the Dunlop National rally championship, Irelands premier national tarmac title!
This is the sort of success that brings big names to our company. For this year, Jimmy Mcrae-father of Britain’s first ever World Rally Champion, Colin is driving one of our very own Ford Escort Mk 2’s in the British Historic Championship. As well as this, we held a corporate day for insurance giants JLT in October 2012, which saw Olympic Gold Medalist- Amy Williams being chauffeured around the famous Goodwood Rally stage by Julian Reynolds and Melvyn Evans. We have recently seen an upturn in customers wanting to hire cars, which is why we have 6 hire cars available for on event use.
This is helped by the fact that we still have a normal garage with an MOT testing station running alongside the motorsport company, as we continue regular servicing and any other work on road going vehicles. We carry out all types of work from replacing engines to changing tyres.
The appearance of our cars is helped by the fact that we have our very own spray booth meaning that any newly built or restored car will have a new paint job with a glossy look, as stated before, we are firm believers that image is key!
