Waltham Services evolved following a previously close business relationship between Malcolm Forbes & IRTS
(International Race Tyre Services) The then European & Formula 1 distributors for Goodyear Tire.
Following Goodyear's decision to withdraw from frontline Motorsport, IRTS were looking for a new racing tyre supplier.
A partnership was formed between Avon Tyres & IRTS and as part of the distribution chain Waltham Services started trading from Little Waltham in 1980 and has successfully continued to trade selling Avon - Cooper MotorsportTyres to the present day.
James Hutchings joined Malcolm & Brenda Forbes at Waltham Services in January 2019 after working for Avon Tyres in the Motorsport department for 17 years, starting as temporary warehouse and tyre fitting crew involved in formulas such as F3,F3000 & A1GP.
In the later years at Avon Tyres James progressed to crew chief on British GT for 6 seasons and finished his time At Avon as a Technical Sales & Service Technician looking after the sales and service of F1 & F2 sidecars at BSB level & general customer tyre application and sales enquiries.
Malcolm & Brenda hung up their racing boots at the end of December 2021 to enjoy their well deserved retirement from Waltham Services, The whole team wish them well for the future!
James & the team look forward to continuing to supply customers old & new with our friendly specialised service.
