I officially launched MBM in February 2013 – as a way to help fund my son Jordan’s own karting career.

Having spent 2012 supporting Thomas Turner secure his WTP Cadet British Championship, it made sense to use the skills that Jordan and I had gained in our own karting journey to help support other drivers achieve their dreams. 

Already with a British Championship under our belt supporting Thomas Turner, we began by focusing on Wombwell and Fulbeck club meetings.

MBM has been set up to support people – and on a budget – whilst maintaining the fun, that can be so easily lost in Motorsport. It is this very ethos that quickly lead to winning many club titles, even dominating the NKF series for a few years.

In 2016, we moved into our first permanent workshop, based in Mexborough, South Yorkshire. After the repeated success we had experienced over the previous few years, we decided to dedicated ourselves – full time – to supporting our team.

As a team, we have enjoyed a number of national podiums at British Championship level including pole position at the British Kart Grand Prix. 

We have competed in many World Championship events, representing not only MBM but the best that the UK has to offer in grass roots motorsport. 

There has been a lot of change since those early days but most importantly the fun element remains. We believe in hard work & dedication but also having fun as we believe kids learn so much better when enjoying what they are doing.
