A passion for motorsports led the chairman of this sports car dealership, Peter Lovett, 64, to compete at Le Mans five times. The Swindon company, set up by Lovett’s father in 1966, this year added a new Porsche dealership in Tewkesbury to existing sites in Bristol, Hungerford and Cardiff. It sells a range of marques including BMW and Maserati.
