My early years in the Motor Trade were with Ford in the late 1980s before I was lucky enough to join a family business where I was to remain for the next fifteen years. As well as selling new cars from a number of major manufacturers, they also specialised in quality pre-owned sports and prestige cars, and during this happy period, I learned as much about every aspect of the motor trade as I could, working my way up from a Junior Salesman to Sales Manager and finally Dealer Principal.

I had got to know Nick Whale quite well over the years, doing business with his family dealerships, and I joined him when he created Nick Whale Sports Cars working from Nick's home and building a bespoke business sourcing the absolute best examples of whichever model our customers required. Dealing in both modern sports cars and a variety of classics, the idea was formulated to start an auction company offering really interesting and well-cared-for 'classics', so, in 2011, Silverstone Auctions was created and has gone on to become one of the UK's leading auction houses.

Having been in the business for approaching 30 years, I consider myself to be very fortunate as cars are in my blood, it’s a passion, a hobby, and a great business to be in.

Mark specialises in Aston Martin, Ferrari, Porsche and Lamborghini and would love to hear from you to discuss buying or selling.
