Miles is the 3rd generation in his family to have run Brownings Garage. He has worked here in Angel, Islington for 20 years and pushed the workshop redevelopment through. Training has been through Frank Massey (ADS), James Dillon (Technical Topics) and Bosch. He has worked on and repaired a wide spectrum of cars over the years, from vintage Bentley’s through to the latest offerings from VM’s. He raced in the Benjafield 24 hour (his team finishing 5th), the Goodwood sprint in April 2015 and will stubble race in September this year. His favorite jobs are electrical fault finding and engine management system problems.
Originally from Marlborough, Gary has been a technician for 11 years, completing his apprenticeship on cars and HGV’s. He joined the Brownings team in February 2011 and grabs every Land Rover/Range Rover that we have in. He loves bicycles and was in his element at the Benjafield 24 hour race in Portugal. He used to be a county long distance runner for Wiltshire. His claim to fame is that he was runner up for the milky bar kid advert 21 years ago.

Michael joined us in July 2014 after 5 weeks work experience. He has just been accepted by Bosch onto their prestigious apprenticeship training course that will last for 3 years. He is hard working and dedicated and will become a fantastic technician in time. His weakness is biscuits and is aiming to demolish a pack of Jaffa cakes in under 1 min 30 seconds.
