The history, the legend: Tony Fowkes
Welsh or RAC Rally
Tony – very early days
At that time, I was in business partnership with a friend of mine, Keith Thompson, and we had started up a garage in Stonebridge, north-west London, repairing cars. The evenings were always spent preparing my own car, and I was soon taking part in international events with moderate success. Other people started bringing me their cars to prepare them for events like these too.
We split the partnership in 1972 and I started my own garage in Park Royal.

Looking good, Tony!
It would be fair to say that back then the garage was run around my rally activities, and my car was always in the workshop having its bodywork repaired or engine tuned. I loved motorsport, its characters, and the challenge of the international events. But without the garage business and loyal support of service crews, I doubt if I would have been so successful.”
