About us

GSM Performance are specialists of premium racewear, bucket seats, racing harnesses and Motorsport safety equipment. We cater for Motorsport competitors and car tuners alike. For over 13 years we’ve adapted to the changing markets and requirements of drivers in our industry. This allows us to ensure, with our high level of product knowledge and expertise, we are able to provide outstanding service to each and every customer.

Our Staff: 

We have a small and dedicated team compromised of myself, Garreth Sleigh (founder and owner), Felix Stewart (store manager and international sales), Amy Cheetham (customer services), and Ben Marriott (website development and support). I’ve carefully selected my trusted team, and each year taken on a new apprentice to support our local community. With continued product training and in-store hands-on experience, we are able to handle all your enquiries with a personal approach. This allows us to ensure you’re satisfied with our service from quotation to delivery.

Our History 

Established in 2003 by myself (Garreth Sleigh), my original plan was to help build, modify and customise cars to a standard high enough to be featured in various magazines including Redline and Fastcar. Over the years, we supplied parts and customisation options for hundreds of vehicles and were proud to be part of the Redline Renault 5 Turbo project, while touring all the major modified car shows with our very own 15 time featured Citroen Saxo.

We then started to move into the performance parts market, even racing our performance Subaru Impreza track car and TVR T350c. This gave us an insight into the new direction of GSMotorsport and how we needed to evolve with the changing market. So, over the years with our growing experience dealing with performance and modified cars, we realised that it was time to make a change!

We understood that customers buying certain products demanded better customer service, product knowledge and choice than was currently available. As a result, we focused on retailing specialist high-value parts where we could bring our experience to the table. We can now bring you the latest GSM Performance website line-up.

We believe that providing three websites distinguishing between the product ranges allows us to provide you with a better service. Each website is able to bring you the most up-to-date and accurate information regarding each set of products. With information guides and fitting guides to accompany the product line-up, we feel that these websites bring the best that we have to offer.

Opening Our Showroom:

In 2012 we opened our GSM Performance showroom taking our service to the next level. We have a full display of Motorsport seats, big brakes conversions, and harnesses. In fact, we have the largest display of racing seats and Motorsport seats in the UK from the Sparco Circuit II, Corbeau Revenge, and Cobra Evolution through to the Mirco RS2, Racesport GT-3, and Bimarco Futura racing seat. The opportunity to sit in all these seats is not to be missed!

In 2013 we are proud to say we are now supplying bespoke race seating for customers that now include: Nike, Partick Thistle FC, MSV Explorer, and Blackberry to name a few high profile clients. In each case, we provide a fully tailor-made quote and package to match each customer’s exact requirements. We then provide a detailed and accurate time plan and project plan every order to ensure our quality of service. Whether you’re in need of one seat or a hundred seats, contact us today for our bespoke packages.

Going the Extra Mile:

For 2014 we have decided to bring you our all new product video reviews. No one else in our market has done this yet so we felt it was time you could view each product we sell via our YouTube channel. Reading about each product is great, looking at the photos is fantastic, but watching our reviews on YouTube is the next step to providing you with a full customer experience.

In 2015 we have expanded our goal. Putting your safety first! We now focus on all equipment that keeps you safe during all forms of Motorsport. Alongside Motorsport seats, harnesses and roll cages we now sell racing suits, helmets, gloves, boots, and everything else you may need. This has been an exciting development and these products can now be found online.

In 2016 we extended our showroom by another 1000 square foot and increased our stock holding. Our new showroom not only brings you the seats and harnesses previously on display, but we also stock an extensive range of all the racewear that we started to sell in 2015.

Looking at the Future:

With each passing year, we bring increased services with better support and satisfaction without losing our personal small business approach and we strive to keep it that way!
