Pro-Tec Performance was formed in 1991 by father and son, Allan & Mark Durham, after they returned to the United Kingdom from South Africa. Allan has worked in the Motorsport industry since the 1970’s working as a rally engineer with Audi Sport in the days of the GPB Quattro before moving on to VW South Africa. Mark initially worked for Bilstein Suspension in South Africa before joining his father at VW where he progressed from technician to work’s driver, racing and rallying VW Golfs. The pair returned to the UK in 1991 and set-up Pro-Tec, choosing to initially specialise in Ford performance cars before moving on to Vauxhall’s after Mark bought an ex-Atkinson Motorsport 1300 GPA Nova in 1994. The next three years saw the team enjoy many class wins and in 1997 the decision was taken to purchase a GPA 1600 Nova which started a series of ‘Giant Killing’ results that included many national class wins and a overall win.
