About Pat Jerome Car Care

The business is jointly owned by Pat Jerome and Keith Pittard who first met up in the ’70’s through their Motorsport activities – namely rallying, not together but in different teams competing against each other.

They remained great friends into the 80’s whilst rallying. Motorsport became the second passion towards the end of the 80’s, once competitive cycling took over for each of them. In the noughties, the competitive cycling ceased and mountain biking took over, but motorsport always in the background during these years.

In 2000 an opportunity arose to take over Lavernock Road Service Station – we combined our resources and abilities and here we still are today, the motorsport has come into the workshop with us over the past ten years, from building a few cars to carrying out work on customers competing cars – Our Motorsport Trained Technicians are able to apply it’s exacting standards to all our customers cars.  > read more about Keith and Pat’s motor backgrounds
