Auction manager Joe Watts said, ‘We are delighted to have Quentin join us at our first ever sale, and are positive his expertise and insight into the classic car market will provide a great help to all those attending.’

Quentin Willson said he was looking forward to working with CCA, which is a sister company of Silverstone Auctions.
