Under the Bonnet: Jim Stokes Group

For many years, the workshop of Jim Stokes has had a legendary status amongst vintage racing fans. You’d hear of friends who had taken one of his workshop tours and seen the wonderful cars being prepared there: always a dazzling mix of pre-war Alfa Romeos, post-war grand prix cars and other rarities. Then you’d see the Jim Stokes Workshop (JSW) stand at shows such as the Goodwood Revival. Jim himself would always be there, his steel-grey hair and moustache unmistakable.

In recent years, the Jim Stokes Group has expanded beyond the preparation of pre-war racers and now includes the creation of new parts (and indeed entire new engines) plus Jim Stokes Classics, dealing with the restoration of more everyday historic vehicles.

For Hagerty, The Toms were given exclusive access to this world-renowned workshop and an interview with Jim himself. We hope you enjoy their video.
