Andy worked for Caterham Cars from the mid 80’s, having graduated with an honors degree in Mechanical Engineering.

In charge of the workshop, there is little, if anything, that Brian does not know about the Caterham Seven, or most other cars and bikes for that matter. Having worked for Ferrari and Porsche specialists, Caterham race teams and Caterham Cars to name a few, if you choose to leave your car with Sevens & Classics, you can be rest assured its in the best possible hands.
Brian is a mad keen motorcyclist, and can be seen riding to and from work most days on his beloved Triumph motorcycle.
