Not sure about Will Gollop and Oaten Hill Mews Garage.  He lived on the Whitstable side of Canterbury on his parents farm.  This is where he learned his rally cross skills.  I understand that he owns G-Tech Motors (race engine tuners) which was on an industrial Estate near Hersden.

Didn't Will Gollop, the rally cross driver, have something to do with Oaten Hill Motors?
A day without learning something is a day lost and my brain is hungry. Feed me please.

Used Oaten Hill Motors myself many years ago.  The owner drove a yellow Rolls Royce but can't recall his name.  Not sure if he raced etc but he was certainly one of Canterburys well known characters.  I believe his son took over the business.

Saw a bit about Oatenhill Mews on Meridian last night which reminded me I used to take my car to the garage there in the early 70s  for servicing. Is my memory right the guy who ran it was an ex rally or racing mechanic or driver? He was a demon at tuning engines.
