About Hugh

At 15 years of age Hugh was lucky enough to start working as a car polisher / tea boy for a British Touring Car team. This started his slippery slope into Motor Sport of which he has never returned from.

Hugh studied Motor Sport Engineering in one of the first courses at Coventry University, one of the founding universities in this course designed and lead by Prodrive and Jaguar UK. He was destined for a life in Formula 1 but soon realized that he wanted to get his hands dirty in every aspect of the team, not just sit in an office designing the end cap for the front wing. He worked his way up through a few smaller teams learning car set-up and preparation until he became the Factory Manager for Anglo Motor Sport in Sydney. Anglo is one of Australia’s premier open wheeler race teams and has been designing and building Formula Fords for nearly 20 years. The team have held the state championship for 10 consecutive years along with numerous National titles.

Hugh chose to stop his full time role in Motor Sport to branch out into his second passion 4wding. He has been building 4wd tourers and race cars for the past couple of years whilst running race cars at the track. His latest accomplishment was building a BMW M135i Production Touring Car from scratch for the National series. It’s debut was at the 2018 Bathurst 6 hour race where the team sat in 4th place for an hour of the race before a flat and some unluck safety car placements pushed them back to 23rd. The team pushed ahead and finished in a respectable 16th place. Keep an eye out at the track for the Secure Wealth BMW driven by Simon Hodges, Hugh will be on the wall or laptop close by.

Bring your car to us and we can discuss where it is, the issues you are dealing with and where you want it to be. We will then run it across the flat-patch and get the settings where we want them before you go to the track. We can join you at the track to carry on the tuning or you can return the car to us after the day and see exactly where you have taken the car to.

How reliable is your car?

As they say; “to finish first, first you must finish”. This is true in motor sport more so than any other industry and car reliability is the main factor here. How many times have you seen/heard that the fastest car has finished in 10th place or not at all? You need a reliable and fast car, fast alone won’t win the race!

We have been preparing cars for over 15 years and know what parts / areas to focus on for reliability. There are so many moving parts it is hard to work all this out so come and see us to prepare your race car or for us to go over the preparation with you so that you can do a meticulous job on your own.
