'As the historic heart of British Motorsport, Donington Park is the UK's most unbelievably apt venue for a supercar club, with air, road and rail links plus racing events, off-roading, museums, skidpan, the works'

‘Since I was a kid, I liked the sensation of speed. Running, swimming, skateboards, go-carts, bikes, you name it, the faster I could go or make something go, the better. Supercars are an extension of my lifelong need for speed,’ commented the AX Supercar MD.
Kevin’s love for stylish living came when he hung up his Speedos to enter the rag trade with Levi Strauss in Northampton, becoming divisional manager before setting up his own company and launching, in the UK, Cardin Knitwear and, respectively, iconic American and French brands Von Dutch and Chipie.
From the kingpin of clothes to the big kahuna of five-star resorts, Kevin enjoyed a five-year contract in the Mediterranean sunshine within the luxury leisure and hospitality industry, before returning to the UK to set up AX Supercars.
