for six year. While our founders were racing as the Bell & Colvill Motorsport team, Simon was vital in transporting everything needed for a race weekend all over Europe. One of his highlights was transporting the teams’ Maserati 250F to the Monaco Historic Grand Prix. Simon’s attention to detail is second to none, so you can be sure your car will always be handled with care whenever it’s on his trailer.
Away from the business, Simon enjoys driving radio-controlled cars and boats, playing golf and spending time with his family.
