Mark Huthert is a seasoned motor mechanic with a passion for parts. In 1975, his father bought him an accident-damaged Austin Seven 850.
A year later, when just 15 years old, he built his first modified 850cc engine. This led to four years of grasstrack racing with three – you guessed it – Minis. With the experience and knowledge picked up from working on his own Austins, and his stint in racing, he took his skills into the auto parts and repair industry, working for a number of garages specialising in different marques.
