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 OBE, during which time we represented BMW/Mini in Warwickshire and Audi in the West Country.

More recently it has been a pleasure to apply my modern sports car and luxury car retailing experience to my Nick Whale Motorhomes business which is based in Pitchill, Evesham. Simultaneously my lifetime 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 has now 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 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!

In Spring 2013 it was an extreme pleasure to be invited as a Trustee and Non-Executive Director of the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity.

A cause close to the heart of all motoring enthusiasts on both two wheels and four, the Midlands Air Ambulance operates three fully equipped helicopters, with paramedics on board, from Strensham, Cosford and Tatenhill airbases to cover the Midlands area. They are funded entirely by donations and receive no government or lottery support.
