Meet the team

Adam Sykes

Adam has grown up in the world of all things automotive, spending time in the workshops of his father’s car restoration business TR Bitz and attending motor races and autojumbles for as long as he can remember. He joined specialist classic car auctioneers H&H Classics in the summer of 2005, first taking over their Automobilia Department and then transferring to the Motor Car Department as a Specialist and later as a Consultant. Throughout this period, he was personally responsible for the consignment and sale of a variety of high-profile cars. This included a Lagonda M45 ‘Rapide’ Drophead Coupe by Freestone and Webb and a Ferrari 308 GTS which had previously been owned by rockstar ‘Iggy Pop’.

Adam has amassed a diverse personal collection of classic machinery including his prized Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible, Aston Martin DB6 and a fire-breathing 1970s March Le Mans sports racing car. He enjoys spending his weekends driving quickly in circles and has competed at the highest level of historic motorsport. This has included drives all over Europe in a variety of cars, perhaps most notably a Formula 5000 Lola T332, Formula One Cooper T51 and a Jaguar C-type.

Damon Milnes

Following a successful career as a senior management consultant, Damon returned to his first love of classic sports and racing cars by starting his own business in 2002. He has subsequently worked as a Sales Manager for two other classic car companies, establishing an extensive global network of buyers and sellers.

As a lifelong motorsport enthusiast Damon has been an active competitor since 1984, winning over 100 awards and 8 championships in a wide variety of cars from an MG Midget to a Reynard F3000. He has also built up an extensive motorsport archive and has assisted numerous owners to research the histories of their competition cars.

Damon specialises in sourcing and selling rare and interesting sports and competition cars.

Steve Wilkinson

Steve joined the team in March 2022. Following retirement from his own highly successful garage business in Manchester, he is now in charge of our fully equipped workshop area. Keen to move away from modern cars, Steve now inspects and assists with the preparation of our sales cars. 

Steve has been a keen competitor for more than 40 years, with multiple championship wins under his belt, including the British and European Historic F3 series honours in the early 2000s.

Angus Wilkinson

The youngest and most popular member of the Adam Sykes & Co. roster is just seven years old – it’s Angus, our head of security!

A Newfoundland/St Bernard cross (possibly with a bit of bear), he takes his job extremely seriously, chasing and barking at the dangerous Fedex drivers and postmen diligently, and always accepting biscuits as compensation for his service!

James Bebbington
