We may be a fairly small company, but we have a big range of knowledge and an even bigger reputation for attention to detail. Barrie Thomson, owner and founder of ALS, grew up surrounded by all things Motorsport related; rallying, karting and single-seater racing. His love of motorsport has sent him on a career path which saw him explore all four corners of the globe with the World Rally Championship. He was working for Brawn GP the year that they clinched the Formula One Constructors and Driver’s Championship. After years of travelling the world with work, Barrie decided it was time to settle down, so he came back to his home town and started up ALS Autocare.
We started out in a small unit just outside of town, breaking a Renault Sport Clio 172. Blood, sweat, and thankfully not too many tears later, we now have a large bright, clean modern unit in the heart of the Northern business district of Carlisle. We have state of the art equipment to carry out servicing, MOTs and general repairs. We haven’t forgotten our Motorsport roots though as we are now the Michelin Clio Cup Race Series official parts supplier. You can find us trackside at every round of the championship, or on the end of the phone giving parts advice.
