Peter began his career repairing crash damaged TVRs, amongst other manufacturers, in his parents’ double garage in the 1980s. Since then, he has gone on to become founder of the Hilton Group, a business that has expanded over the years to include a multitude of different ventures under its umbrella. These include Castle Sportscars, an official Lotus main dealer, Hilton and Moss, a dedicated restorer of classic vehicles specialising in Mercedes-Benz, and Hilton Coachworks, the largest Mercedes-Benz approved body repair facility in the UK. Away from the responsibilities of directing the Group, Peter has a passion for classic British Sportscars, which of course falls hand in hand with his choice of business and drives him to raise our already exacting standards even higher.
Gavin originally joined the business as a paint shop technician many years ago. He has since risen through the ranks to take on a number of different roles, including working in the parts department and then onto workshop controller, before finally taking on the role of workshop and service manager. With a keen eye for detail and fastidious standards, as well as unrivalled knowledge across all makes and models of cars, he oversees the servicing from start to finish. In his free time, his main hobby is…cars, of course. What else? With a particular interest in American cars, he likes to attend shows in his 1965 Buick Riviera.
Dylan has many years of experience working on both cars and aircraft. Having worked for Dax building Cobras and then servicing commercial airliners with SRS Technics, Dylan is used to working with precision and great attention to detail. With extensive knowledge of all Lotus models across the range, from old to new, through to Jaguar E-Types and classic Mercedes Benz, Dylan like to spend his leisure time trying to break his prized Dax Rush at the world’s greatest racing circuits.
Snibs – or “The Snib” as we like to call him – has been working on TVRs for over 25 years – what he doesn’t know about them isn’t worth knowing. Factory trained and well known to many customers, dealers and TVR employees, Snibs works performs our TVR service, diagnostics, repairs and upgrades.
Having joined us in 2013, Ross has become a key member of the team. As Hilton and Moss’ head technician, he’s always on hand to lend a hand to the Castle Sportscars team when required. Ross previously ran a classic car garage, as the workshop manager. Despite his impressive experience with cars, Ross is also highly skilled with computers and electronics, being qualified as an electronics engineer. Having built and fixed computers for a living in the past, Ross now does this as more of a hobby, meaning his affinity for classic car restoration has come to the forefront.
Fraser is the Sales manager at Castle Sportscars, and has been involved within the Hilton Group for well over a decade. With a keen eye for all things motor related, if he doesn’t know something about cars, it’s not worth knowing! Fraser himself has owned various classic and sports cars over the years. Whether it be classic cars or a Lotus, Fraser is a friendly face and always willing to help. In his spare time, Fraser tries to get to as many motoring shows as possible and is a massive Formula 1 fan.
Tom has recently joined the business to look after the social media, marketing and PR. Having had a keen interest in cars from a young age, he finally decided the time was right to work with his passion. When he’s not at work, he’s another one spending his spare time doing something not dissimilar to his role day to day – participating in track days on his Suzuki GSX-R 1000 motorbike, or taking to the snow on a snowboard.
