From the mid 1940s Archibalds Motorsport has been a significant driver to the success of the company, especially through our global recognition and relationship with Jaguar Cars. Success of the business and passion for motorsport continued under the late John Fairhall from the 90s with Bruce Miles, owner and HTCNZ member/racer, now just as motivated to continue the Archibalds legacy.”Anthony Kearns – Archibalds General Manager
