Here is an opportunity for someone who wishes to be involved in motorsport from the perspective of competition gearboxes. I started this business in 1984 with experience gained from maintaining Hewland gearboxes at Alan Smith Garages in Derby when they started a Hewland service in 1973.
Now at age 69, I am looking for a successor, to carry this business on into the future. 90% of the work involves 60s and 70s Hewland transaxles in historic racing, and at the present rate, historic racing will continue for many years to come.
What do you need?
A definite interest in motorsport.
Sound mechanical ability
Eagerness to work at your own business
What do you get?
A business established in 1984
An excellent customer base
Stock of parts, value averaging £40,000
Assets of tooling, jigs, equipment
Training and consultation while-ever my brain is in working order
