Born in Shropshire, Peter Thorpe has always had a passion for cars and motorbikes
Peter’s learning of his mechanical craft started young (age 13) with some of his earliest memories being trained & working in his father’s garage in St Georges.
After completing his City & Guilds (qualifications?) Peter spent 15 years work in Motor Sport overseeing….. BMW saloon racing, Britcar endurance racing, Testing with Williams F1, European Boss, European GT’s, Historic Touring cars.
Peter took the leap, embarked on his own, and started up Autotech Performance.
For the first 5 years – the business was a mobile operation, which provided Peter with the foundation to build his client base to such a size whereby he was able to take on his first premises.
Operating out of a 1000sq ft unit Hadley – Peter’s reputation as a perfectionist in all mechanical aspects spread quickly by word of mouth (both locally and nationally) which saw him grow the business to such a size that by 2013, he needed larger premises to deal with the requirements of his customer base.
Following the move to Hortonwood 50, whilst the operation and the size of the team has grown, Peter continues to provide customer satisfaction by continually adapting his business to make sure he can maintain customers expectations and trust in this ever changing landscape.
