James Dennison

Classic & Vintage Auction Consultant

A life long classic car fanatic, James is especially addicted to big engine cars from the 1960s, but finds it hard to resist anything with big wheels, walnut and leather. Currently struggling to contain an obsession to own a Maserati 3500GT (or a Khamsin or a Bentley Continental Flying Spur), he is manfully hurling money at his (t)rusty old Mkl Jaguar in the hope of driving it to the Goodwood Revival this summer.

Matthew Parkin

Classic & Vintage Auction Consultant

Matthew joins us following a series of senior roles at Alfa Romeo, Volvo and as a Director of the Morgan Motor Company. An enthusiastic competitor at VSCC events for many years, he has an eclectic collection of some fourteen cars, from a 1921 Vauxhall 30/98 to a 1966 MGB GT. Eleven of these are currently on the road – its probably enough he says.

James Clay

Classic & Vintage Auction Consultant - The South of England

James joins us after dedicating the last 29 years to his role as Commercial Manager at Mithril Racing based at Goodwood Race Circuit – he reckons he has driven over 120,000 laps over the years! Growing up around US Army bases in Europe in the ‘70s, he became obsessed with big American cars – full size of course and went on to study Automotive Design at the Royal College of Art in London. He is both enthusiastic and knowledgeable about anything with wheels, wings and a bit of age.

Phil Ingle

Classic & Vintage Auction Consultant

Yet another racer joins the team, and one with racing experience on two and four wheels. If running a Lotus 20/22 in the Historic Formula Junior Championship wasn’t exciting enough, the Rob North BSA Triple with the Classic Racing Motorcycle Club certainly was – with numerous podium finishes to his credit. Not just a safe pair of hands on the track, Phil has a wealth of knowledge on cars from all eras and clearly demonstrates the icy nerve that it takes to be a consignor at Brightwells.
