Hergesheimer Motorsport closing

Just checked my emails and got one from Laura Hergeshiemer.
Shop closing next month due to property owner selling up .
A great pity , as they’re local to me and have used them for a few years .
In fact , I was due to visit them next week regarding a couple of things .

Yip .

In the last 3 months or so, Jrz suspension and gt gears both recommended them to me .
Matt Monson just a week ago .

They went “beyond the call of “ many times with me due to my sometimes hectic schedule changing at the last minute .

Just today I was emailing ruf abou having hergesheimer inspect a transmission before I ordered parts from ruf and gt .

Hopefully , I can still make this happen in time

40 years in business. Sad to see them go.

That is a shame. Great shop with an amazing reputation. Will leave a significant hole in their trading area for existing clients and what would have been happy new clients. Hope all works out well for owners and staff!

Cheers

To Mark & Laura, Shocking news, but I've gotten that landlord call before. I hope it's retirement on the horizon, and Red Line Service wishes you all the best.

Assuming they are retiring, how about inviting them to spend some free time here ?

I've spoken to Mark and Laura and they are going to be fine. I'm not really at liberty to disclose their plan, but they have one, and long term I expect you will still see Hergesheimer trailers and cars at PCA and POC events in the future.

Absolutely. Everyday service in CA will cease, but the Porsche passion, racing, and special projects will continue on. Details will be forthcoming after the dust settles on the move.

Thanks all for the kind words.
