In 2015, following 30 years in banking, Simon turned a lifelong passion into a second career and started trading in classic and competition cars.
In addition to working with clients buying and selling cars, Simon helped coordinate the Doug Nye book on the ROFGO Collection recently published by Porter Press, as well as placing articles on client’s cars in leading classic car publications.
Preferring to act as a broker rather than principal, Simon looks to match buyer and seller and charge the seller a fee on completion of the sale.
“Buyers and sellers like the transparency of fees seen at auctions as well as the flexibility and “off market” nature of dealing with a broker.”
Since starting out on his own in October 2020 Simon has successfully found new homes for more than 60 classic, supercar and competition cars.
Since the 1990’s Simon has owned and raced many cars. He has been a regular competitor at Goodwood Revival. Racing highlights include coming 4th overall in Spa 6 Hour and competing in several support races for the British F1 Grand Prix at Silverstone.
