Tony Wright started his long association with Porsche cars back in 1976 with Maltin Car Concessionaires of Henley-on-Thames, Porsche main dealers. Previously, he had spent 2 years with JW Automotive, building the Ford Cosworth DFV engines for the highly successful Le Mans winning Gulf Mirage team in 1975. After a brief spell at Langland Motor Company in Kensington he joined Dage Sport in 1987, which subsequently became G-Force Motorsport. After 15+ years with John Greasley, the principal at G-Force, it seemed the right time to set up his own facility for Porsche owners who like his no-nonsense approach.
Joe Carter has been with the Company since leaving school, and served his apprenticeship while working at Wrightune. We are pleased to have him on board, and it is great to see that there are still young people who want to take up the challenge of working on these wonderful machines. Joe has become a valued member of staff and has become more knowledgeable day-by-day. He is a careful and meticulous worker, and has learnt his craft under the expert guidance of Tony. He is particularly knowledgeable about the foibles of the Modern Porsche.
Tony’s son Chris joined the Company to help with the day-to-day running of the business. Chris' passion is motorsport and he has enjoyed success in various disciplines from karting to GT3 Cup cars in Britcar. Chris also gets hands-on in the workshop when he gets time free from driving a desk.
We are a great believer in investing in skills training for the future and Alfie is our young trainee who is learning all aspects of Porsche servicing and repair work. He is currently undertaking a Bicester Heritage skills academy apprenticeship and is targeting ownership of a VW Golf GTi Mark 2 when funds allow!
