About us

Willow Sportscars was formed in 2008 with the aim of providing high quality work and service for the owners of hand built sportscars.

Nick

Nick has over 25 years experience in the motor trade. Starting with an apprenticeship at a Ford dealer, then classic car restoration, Sebah Automotive (Caterham and GT), Henley Heritage (TVR), Hyperion (Caterham) and another stint at Henley (TVR). Somehow he managed to squeeze in 2½ years teaching car mechanics at a Technical School in Eritrea (North East Africa) as a volunteer with VSO (Voluntary Service Overseas). Raced for several years - “when he was a lad”.

Mike

Mike came to help with a job in 2009 and hasn’t left since ! He has many, many years experience; Some say he’s just old, but we wouldn’t like to comment. Worked for Sebah (Caterham and GT) and Tranzpower (Radical) amongst others. Raced in Formula 1300 (and won a race) ... unfortunately he only races to the toilet now !

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Andy : Accounts, he keeps us all in “cheque”.
