History
Redish Motorsport was a dream of owner James Redish's as early as 2003 whilst working for a BMW main dealer from 2001 to 2006 - where his love for the BMW brand was established.

After that, he worked for a local 'Specialist-for-BMW-vehicles' which he helped grow and expand into an established Service & Repair centre for BMW vehicles during 2006-2009.

After planning his business during 2008, James opened Redish Motorsport in 2009 and hasn't looked back since!

In 2009 the company was incorporated and became Redish Motorsport Ltd.

In 2010 the company moved from it's humble beginnings in a small unit, to it's current modern, almost-new, workshop facility in south Bristol. 

In 2012 we took on our newest employee Luke who brought a whole new fresh skill set to the business and has grown to be admired for his conscientious work ethics and extreme care & attention by our customers. Luke is our lead M-technician and takes a Vanos rebuild, Conrod Bearing replacement, and various other detailed work, in his stride. Luke also helps take care of customer handovers and technical explanations when a customer collects their vehicle.
Luke is a highly skilled technician, and a hugely valued member of the team.

In 2012 we enrolled the assistance of our Online Technical Support Advisor; Pete.
Pete works off-site and is purely 'Internet' based. He helps us answer the online forum-related enquires we receive regarding processes, bookings, prices, to name a few. Pete comes from a hugely technical background within the direct repair of gas-turbine engines for a global aviation company. 
In 2015 this role was phased out and brought in house with the introduction of Katy (reception).

In 2013 our associated company Redish Automotive (BMW Servicing & Repairs) was born and brand identity created.

In 2014 we expanded into another workshop next door and the Redish Automotive brand was launched from it's own workshop offering customer-focused Independent BMW Specialist services like Servicing & Repair & Routine Maintenance for everyday BMW owners

In 2014 BMW Group AG, recognised Redish Automotive as an Independent Dealership for the use of internal computer data (updating 2010> BMW's with Online Service Books), and issued us with a unique dealership number: 50024567.

In September 2014 we took on 1 more staff member; Svend, for the Redish Motorsport workshop. Svend brings us a wealth of knowledge over the 40 years he's been in the motor trade. He has the unique OCD-ness which we strive for when rebuilding Engines, Axles, Chassis's, Undersides etc. He also served several years at the same local BMW main dealer as James.

In June 2015 we took on another staff member: Katy, who is our Receptionist & Office Administrator. Katy brings us her strong Administration background and hugely organised approach to office duties. James still enjoys playing a large part in customer interaction by personally dealing with many customers at 'handover' stage, but Katy is the key link between the 4x workshop technicians and the customer's requests. As well as; organising James' day around customer demand for his time, processing our unique Digital Picture Diary we offer, answering Emails, progressing workshop flow, answering phone calls, preparing invoices, compiling price estimates, amongst other things.
