|I was running a manufacturing company producing transmission parts and we exported 80% of our production. We were being asked for more and more parts for Japanese vehicles and in particular 4x4.... With my industrial background and in particular exporting to Asia, I knew exactly where these parts were produced and how to supply them at a good price.||Initially, Euro4x4parts was the result of a pure marketing opportunity: 4x4 parts were hard to find and expensive, there was specialised press and media dedicated to enthusiasts which facilitated communication. It was also a niche market adapted to our profile in the automotive sector which was our common ground.|
|I don't compete myself but I'm an avid fan of off-road rallying it's a fascinating discipline...||Competition had been tempting me for a long time. As ever, there's never enough time but in the end my passion for racing won the day. My track record up until now includes the 24 Hour French Off-Road Championship (Toyota), Breslau Poland, Breslau Balkans, Croatia Trophy and the Transilvania Aventura (Land Rover). At that is just the start....|
