Hexagon (Goldie Hexagon Racing)

In the early 1960s John Goldie ran the Hexagon garage business which prepared historic and classic cars. In 1966 the firm moved to Highgate and the following year acquired a BMW franchise. The company used motor racing as a promotional tool and this culminated in 1974 when the company ran a semi-works Brabham BT42 for John Watson. The team was managed by Rod Sawyer and New Zealander Alan McCall was the development engineer.

Hexagon withdrew from racing after that but the company grew steadily in the 1980s to become a major BMW dealer in the London area.
