Venture Performance , Northamptonshire | ClickMechanic

Peter R
Brought up around cars and vintage machinery from a young age, My interest in Classic cars was apparent early on, After leaving school early I Started off as a apprentice at Paul Marshall Bodyshop in Beccles at 15 years old and spent around 2 years here as a Bodywork Technician/Paint Sprayer/Panel Beater mainly working on Commercials.

I was then offered a job working for Excalibur Engineering restoring Classic Aston Martin vehicles and was lucky enough to work on several rare examples including some that were used in Bond Films.

At the age of 18 I moved to Great Yarmouth where I worked for Specialist in Design building and fabricating racecars for the Dragstrip working under the legendry Jon Hogarth as my mentor.


3 Years in the Territorial army RLC added to the list of skills in both mechanical and electrical engineering

After leaving SID I set-up my own business called RPP Racing at this point based in Lowestoft.
I traded here for a number of years before moving to Ipswich and still traded as RPP Racing and in 2013
I moved to Northamptonshire where I settled and setup again initially mobile only but after a few months of trading Venture Performance was formed mainly specialising in classic and performance in 2017 we Changed the name of the main garage side of the business to A6 Recovery and Salvage allowing us a bigger spectrum and platform to work from and allowing us to oull in more contract and fleet operational work and support, our main areas of work now are Accident Recovery and Salvage, Roadside Repairs and Vehicle Transport Logistical support and we now offer fully mobile and Garage based services from our workshop base at Sharnbrook Bedfordshire. When not busy with our main lines of work our team specialise in Classic vehicle restoration services, Fabrication of Race and custom vehicle builds and General repairs and servicing on both modern and classic vehicles.

The business caters for all makes and models of cars and will tackle all types of repairs.
Peter does specialise in Classic Aston Martin, alongside Classic Japanese, Ford & Aircooled Volkswagen Vehicles but will tackle any job be it a service or a full restoration or full on race vehicle build or repair

Peter was friendly and did all he could to get me going again. Although he could not fix it he shared details of garages who could do deeper investigations into my electrical problems.

Peter arrived in his own Landrover to assess why my Discovery had failed so this gave me confidence straight away. He was very helpful and offered a diagnosis but time limitations meant that he could not delve further into the vehicle to confirm the problem. He offered several options at what to do next one of which I am considering. I would use this service again and would certainly recommend this service to anyone.
