Motorsport

Desmond's motorsport involvement traces all the way back to the formative days of his professional life, working on Aston Martin racing legends like Project 215, and he’s remained involved ever since.

Behind the wheel, Desmond's early racing saw him contest the Slick 50 Road Saloon Championship and Tomcat Challenge. In 2011, Desmond relaunched his race team, Border Reivers, in the Aston Martin GT4 Challenge.

The team has also prepared a host of one-off Aston Martins for competition, including, uniquely, rallying. In 1997, we readied a DB5 for the legendary, 47-day Peking to Paris Challenge. It was the first Aston Martin home.

Other campaigns have included the Monte Carlo Challenge, the North Cape Rally and the Round The World in 80 Days Challenge.

If you have an interest in taking an Aston Martin into competition, whatever the adventure, we’d love to hear from you.

May 2014 - Desmond Smail Pre Bonhams Auction Luncheon

On the 17 May we hosted a successful pre-auction lunch for 76 of our customers and friends. The weather was glorious and we all enjoyed a delicious luncheon hosted at Robinsons in Newport Pagnell. Onto the Bonhams Auction and despite not selling our headlining car, a fantastic green Zagato, we enjoyed the atmosphere and buzz the day had to offer.
