McGurk Performance Cars has hired Aston Martin Master Technician Gary Crosby (pictured) and a new workshop manager, Simon Thorpe.

Thorpe’s product knowledge and organisation skills combined with Crosby’s arrival will strengthen the servicing department workshops.

Crosby has been employed by Aston Martin since 1999, working on all Aston Martin models, from the DB7 through to the DB11 and DBX.

His product knowledge and problem-solving skills saw him take on the role of technical liaison at the company’s Gaydon HQ where he was the key contact for Aston Martin dealers needing technical expertise.

Cosby says: “I enjoy problem solving and am very hands on in the workshop, so I’m delighted to join McGurk Performance Cars where I’ll continue to work across the entire spectrum of Gaydon-era Aston Martins.”

He joins Aston Martin Technician Steve Pocock, who has also worked on Aston Martins since the nineties, at the Aston Martin independent specialists.

John McGurk, owner of McGurk Performance Cars, commented: “I’ve known Gary for over 10 years and I’ve wanted to employ him all that time.

“It’s really special for us to have two individuals who have both worked on Aston Martins since the nineties and know everything about them, back to front, upside down and inside out.

“It means that we can solve problems faster because we know what they are, and diagnosis times will be shorter because we’ve got such an extensive breadth of knowledge and experience.”

McGurk Performance Cars has also just made a substantial investment in new factory diagnostic equipment to for the servicing department to assist in work on the latest models.
