  • Graham Davidson | Co-Founder

    A Petrolhead first and foremost Graham has ongoing interests in the oil industry and commercial property but having previously bought a 675LT, P1 and V12 Vantage S from business partner Craig, conversations then followed exploring the idea of bringing an independent car dealership to the North East of Scotland. The idea being that the north east and “Europe’s oil capital” has always suffered with limited representation from brands such as Aston Martin, Bentley, McLaren, Ferrari, Lamborghini and others but has a high concentration of keen enthusiasts and collectors who could now enjoy the the services we provide locally to fill that gap.

    Graham is also fuelled by a passion for GT racing. Since 2003 a track-day regular, Graham quickly developed into a successful racing driver, a journey that started at Knockhill driving a TVR and Noble road cars, then moved on to racing in 2013 with grass roots saloon racing onto a string of race wins in various machines, taking overall Champion honours in the 2017 GT Cup in his McLaren MP4-12C GT3. In 2018 took the leap into British GT’s withe great success including an overall race win at Spa-Francorchamps alongside Maxime Martin in the Aston Vantage GT3, bagging him the ERA trophy from the BRDC! Other highlights included a GT3 class win at the LeMans AMR festival and in 2019 became overall British GT Champion with TF Sport and AMR with teammate fellow Scot, Jonny Adam. Graham is now a proud member of the BRDC and continues to feature on the British GT grid between work and family commitments.

    A true petrolhead and racer, he understands the expectations of performance car owners, enthusiasts and collectors alike. Not your typical car sales person with the depth of driving and ownership knowledge that is rarely found from your typical dealer and will be delighted to help you find the right car for you!
