Derek Warwick Honda Jersey was set up in 1989 and was the Flagship for my Dealership Group with 5 garages and a turnover of £50m employing 130 people.

I sold all my UK Garages in 2003, keeping the Flagship Honda Garage here in Jersey.

I now have several property companies in the UK, building residential houses, plus a small commercial office block.

I have just finished building two of most spectacular homes here in Jersey.

I am President of the British Racing Drivers Club (BRDC) at Silverstone which keeps me very busy, I am also a FIA Formula 1 Drivers Steward at Grand Prix’s.

My hobbies, time and two gorgeous grandsons permitting, are Work, Motor Racing, Golf, Training and all Sport.

I am very proud of Derek Warwick Honda Jersey and you will find me most days in my office by reception so I am accessible to all our customers.
