History of Tolman MotorsportFounded by Chris Tolman in 2007, after gaining 12 years of experience working in professional motorsport. Based in Warwickshire, in the heart of the British Motorsport industry. Since that time, Tolman Motorsport has grown organically and twice outgrown it's premises!
Chris was originally trained as an engineer by the Ministry of Defence. This training allowed him to put engineering at the heart of the Tolman offering. Working within race car management and development, and sports car restoration, Chris wanted to establish a pioneering motorsport company that recognised the modern world in which cars need to operate. He decided that he wanted to set up his own motorsport and restoration business to bring his unique skills, training and experience to his own customers.
Under Chris’s leadership, Tolman Motorsport applies new technologies that maximise performance in modern motorsport and improve the classics of the past. Through re-engineering and technology, the company has the skills to solve the inherent problems and impracticalities of classic cars to make them usable and appropriate for today's harsh motoring environment. Whether it’s building or engineering a concourse winner or a modern-day race winner, Tolman Motorsport has it covered.
The business has been successful and doubled in size every year since it started. There are now ten full-time employees housed in a modern 4000sqft workshop. With our team of ex-factory motorsport and automotive technicians, we utilise our knowledge gained from winning multiple world championship titles to benefit our clients. At Tolman Motorsport, we offer complete restorations, professional engine builds, chassis preparation, fabrication services, event support and consultation services for current and historic road, race and rally cars and teams.
