I'll let you know if I can't do it...

Whether as a competitor or preparer I have been involved in motorsport in various forms for many years. Currently I compete mainly on historic rallies and generally as a navigator but over the years I have also been involved in sprints and hill climbs and help prepare vehicles for all types of motorsport.

I have good knowledge as to what is required to prepare and maintain vehicles for competition and to make sure that they conform to regulations.

I am happy to provide support on events either as a navigator for individuals or as part of the event marshalling or as support crew for a car or team.

Other things I have been involved with are the London to Brighton veteran run, the complexities of veteran cars need innovative solutions and I have been involved in preparation, maintenance and competing on the event.

I like nothing better than driving an old car on wonderful open roads through beautiful countryside and I'm involved in creating routes for classic car tours, including one we run annually as part of the Haslemere Classic Car Show which I organise for the town.

In fact I can put my hand to just about anything if it's to do with cars. You can read about some of my adventures on my blog.

"This is to thank you sincerely for ensuring that the C-Type conforms to current MSA safety and eligibility regulations for sprinting and hillclimbing. As always your engineering solutions have been clever, robust, elegant and economical and, so important for an old motor car, discreet so as to ensure that everything looks appropriate for the period. Scrutineers at Goodwood, Shelsley Walsh and Gurston Down have all made complimentary remarks about your work, which is especially pleasing." Christopher Wigdor
