Approved Partner focus – Sam Hancock
As a well established member of the global classic car fraternity thanks to his regular appearances behind the wheel of some of the most important historic racing cars, Sam is expertly placed to discreetly help private clients source, acquire and manage their automotive assets.
Still a professional racing driver, now focusing on historic cars, Sam is particularly adept at sourcing exquisite racing cars and helps clients with acquisitions appropriate to their driving abilities, or coaches them up to handle the cars of their dreams. Unsure if you can handle the apparently ferocious power of a DFV Formula 1 car? Sam would likely advise otherwise. Lacking the necessary car control to drift your D-Type around Goodwood? Sam will help.
A regular race winner in the biggest historic events, Sam has set lap records at Goodwood, raced for the factory Aston Martin LMP1 team at Le Mans, is a full member of the BRDC and a former European Le Mans Series Champion (LMP2 class). His reputation and broad network connects him globally to marque specialists, owners, preparers, dealers and auction houses alike – but also gives him access ‘backstage’ to mechanics, panel beaters and journalists, enabling him to conduct the most thorough searches for off-market cars and offer well rounded, impartial
advice collated from the best experts in their field. Sam acts exclusively on behalf of buyers, advising on acquisitionswithout bias or incentive from the selling side, guaranteeing his clients’ best interests are served without compromise.
Remembering that historic car ownership is primarily about having fun, Sam also takes time to consider which cars might be gateways to areas of the ‘scene’ that might best suit a particular client’s personality type or lifestyle preference. Immersed in all corners of it himself on a weekly basis, it is hard to imagine anyone better placed to offer such advice. Finally, Sam also offers strategies to maximise the values of automotive assets alongside
managing all ongoing requirements such as restorations, storage, maintenance, event and competition entries etc.
