Meet the Techniques Team

Our Team

Brian Gateson

Brian is the proud owner and managing director of Techniques, having formed the business in 1988. Brian first completed an apprenticeship in the Motor Trade before joining Libra Motive, the then foremost London Morgan dealer in late 1981.

On leaving to set up Techniques, Brian's reputation as a development engineer grew with the rebuild and preparation of racing Morgans during the 1990s. Brian and his staff continue to support their Morgan racing customers, applying their knowledge to all Morgan models and with considerable success. Brian has grown his business based on his love for Morgans and other Classic Sports Cars and now with over 45 years in the industry and with his vast knowledge of Morgans and other marques, whilst always learning, there isn't too much that he hasn't seen before.

Our Team

Tracy Gateson

Tracy is responsible for all those background tasks that enable a successful business to operate. Oh yes, Tracy is no stranger to Morgans and has owned an driven many different models from an early Kent engined Morgan 4/4 to a Morgan +8 and can now be regularly seen driving a Duratec engined +4.

Tracy can also be found at some of the SpeedMog events, which Techniques is very proud to sponsor and she helps Brian with the organisation of the Techniques Trophy at Silverstone every year.
