Matthews other passion outside of this interesting and diverse business is an interest in Historic motorsport. Campaigning an Austin Healey 3000 for the last 5 years with the HRDC in circuits around the United Kingdom (UK). This car was imported from the USA and extensively restored by the team at Historic Motoring Solutions into a competitive, reliable and successful entrant into the Historic racing scene.
2020 drew an interest into the vintage racing scene and the purchase of a Supercharged Austin 7. A well know car built and raced by Jezz Skevington with success for many seasons. Jezz retired from racing at 76 years old so Matthew decided to take the car on and continue its progression.
2021 Saw an opportunity with a new mechanic on board and some external assistance to finish off works to the 427 Ford Galaxie and 1963 AC cobra, both long standing projects mothballed due to business commitments, keeping up with the demands of customers builds.
