Reg Hopkins competed in the European truck racing championship from 1985 up to 1992. Reg built his own race transporters to allow the team to carry it race truck, spares and also living accommodation for up to ten people, Reg also hunted and Team chassed until 2016.
In 1993 Reg’s eldest son Philip Started to compete in Formula Ford at the age of 17, the family initially built a 7.5tone transporter at the end of Philips 1stseason the vehicle was sold for £2,500 for the following season an 18ton Rigid was built. Philip progressed through the racing ranks competing in British Formula 3 and British GT’s each year the transporters increased in size and would be sold at the end of the season to help the funding of the next season.
When Philip graduated with an engineering degree in 1998, Reg & Philip decided they could combine the families experience gained building race transporters during their racing careers in the past decade and use the knowledge gained from his studies to form a company to build specialist racing vehicles. They started by converting second hand trailers and rigid trucks in what was previously the race workshops on the family business park, the company grew progressively from 2 people working in a 900sq ft building in 2000 to approximately 30 people working in 20,000sqft in 2010.
Philip can be found anywhere and everywhere from the initial concept of the vehicle until its final completion.
In 2005 Philip’s younger Brother Oliver joined the family company after gaining knowledge of all areas of the business, today he can be found specialising in the electrical & hydraulic side of the company. Oliver can also be found promoting the business competing in the British Asphalt Rally championship.
