Ben Thompson

Technical Director

Ben started Majestic Motors in 2015 after a 15-year career in the automotive industry as a Design and Production Engineer, working for iconic brands such as Triumph Motorcycles, Aston Martin, Marcos, and TVR.

At Majestic Motors, Ben heads up the workshop side of the business, supporting technicians and overseeing quality. He also designs and engineers custom components, estimates jobs and assesses and diagnoses vehicles.

Ben has an eclectic collection of classic cars, most - truth be told - in need of full restoration. His favourite marque is Mercedes Benz - between them, he and his partner own a pair of SLs - one classic, one modern!

Vic

Senior Technician

Vic is our longest serving member of staff, having joined near to the start of the business in 2015. A skilled welder and painter, he also performs mechanical work, so is a general all-rounder in the workshop.

Vic is a keen motorcyclist owning an original Honda Fireblade and Kawasaki Z1000SX. When he has a week off, it's not unusual for Vic to jump on a bike and ride through France to Italy or Germany!
