'I have been lucky enough to combine my passion for cars and motor racing with my professional career for over 30 years now. During that time I have enjoyed representing many famous and prestigious brands as a main dealer which have included Lotus, AC, Noble, Toyota, Lexus, Porsche, Maserati and Ferrari. From 2001 until 2006 I also enjoyed a successful business partnership with ex-F1 World Champion, Damon Hill, during which time we represented BMW/Mini in Warwickshire and Audi in the West Country.
More recently it has been a pleasure to combine modern sports car and luxury car retailing with some exceptional classic cars, through my Nick Whale Sports Cars business which is now based in Claverdon, Warwickshire.Simultaneously my life time knowledge of buying and selling classic cars has come in very useful whilst establishing Silverstone Auctions early in 2011. This specialist classic car auction house has done spectacularly well from its first sale at Silverstone Circuit in June 2011 and looks set to become one of the leading classic car auction houses in the UK, supporting many key motoring events nationwide.
The people in all my businesses have been the key to our success and their approach and caring attitude have consistently allowed us to lead the way in providing real customer delight, as evidenced by our level of repeat business.
It has also been my privilege to have recently served on the main board of both the BRDC and the MSA, including some testing times in 2008/2009, when the British Grand-Prix seemed lost forever!'
