Hey everyone,

My name is Robert and I'm new to this forum but have been active on other automotive sites for over a decade now.

I'm a long time British sports car owner including Triumphs, MGs and Lotuses. About 6 years ago I decided to turn my hobby into a career and left architecture to pursue my passion for automobiles. A couple of years back I started a company, British Racing Group and we are now the authorized representatives for Toniq and Ginetta in the US. We operate several OE and aftermarket parts websites including Lotus Garage and our own namesake site.

I look forward to becoming a regular here and becoming more involved with this portion of the community after years of involvement with the Lotus folks.

Thanks,

Robert

Welcome.

Have you checked into Classic Motorsports yet??

Also, if I remember correctly, new members who own companies can give big discounts for their products to the other members...

As for my personal cars, nothing too exotic outside of a Lotus Elite and an Acura. That's the flip side of being in the auto business is that you end up driving the inventory and owning very few yourself.

I'll probably look to become an advertiser based on what I'm seeing here. With the first Ginetta G40's on their way here early next year, this is obviously the best venue for them.

@ Duke, I loved architecture (not always the clients) and practiced for nearly 20 years but my passion was always with the time I spent with the Lotus clubs so when the opportunity presented itself, I made the jump.

New guy brings the beer (and being a Brit, the beer will be good).

I honestly didn't want to make the thread into a commercial for my company. I recognize forum rules and certainly don't want to violate any by posting anything that constitutes an advertisement.

contact the folk that run this insane asylum and they can set you up as an advertiser ... then any time you post something in the wrong place they'll move it ...
