Evolution Capital, a leading corporate finance boutique wholly focused on the TMT space, has celebrated another successful year by taking 40 partners, customers and industry investors on a classic car rally across the glorious West Sussex countryside.
The event, organised by Evolution Capital MD Nigel Cook and his team, celebrated the firm’s achievements over the last 12 months, notably the matching of 10 IT and Telecoms business owners with potential investors/buyers and the launch of e-accelerator, the UK’s first portal for the ICT mergers and acquisitions marketplace.
Featuring a selection of new and classic sports and supercars, the rally began with breakfast at Targa Florio Cars just south of Chichester, before moving off into the South Downs National Park and a pit-stop at Vintage Bentley, where participants were greeted by owner William Medcalf and given a tour of the restoration workshop.
From there, the cavalcade headed east to Midhurst and the Cowdray Park estate’s beautiful Walled Garden, where international polo player Marcus Beresford told the group how polo was established at Cowdray and what it takes to be a top-flight player.
The final destination was Goodwood’s historic motor circuit, where Evolution Capital’s guests enjoyed lunch and drinks in the Race Control building before prize-giving and a fascinating talk from Goodwood motorsport curator Gary Axon on buying classic and contemporary sports and supercars.
