Alex in his Giulietta at Goodwood

Alex inherited his passion for Italian cars and almost as soon as he could lift a spanner, he was lucky enough to be restoring his own Alfa Romeo GTV6 and Giulietta.

Though his preparation is meticulous, he firmly believes it's a sideshow to the main event, i.e. enjoying a car from the driver's seat. Alex's interpretation of this usually involves going sideways around Goodwood motor racing circuit where he worked for a spell with Mithril Racing.

His trade was learnt under the watchful eye of Chris Snowdon and, after studying mechanical engineering in Bristol, he set up Alex Jupe Motorsport in 2001 in his native Hampshire. Alex now operates from a workshop near the village of Bosham just a few miles from Chichester on the West Sussex/Hampshire border.

"It's not a job", he says. He (mostly) enjoys it too much!
