David 'Dee' Rickaby
David was introduced to the smell of petrol at a young age. He was just 7 years old when his father came home with a classic Triumph motorcycle in need of restoration. Helping his father with the restoration sparked something, and a love of all things with wheels gathered pace.
Like the rest of the team at Silverwood, the letters VW feature heavily in Dee’s automotive history. His first car was a MK1 Golf, his second and third cars were MK 2 GTIs. Dee’s current car (which he’s owned for over 20 years) is a late specification E30 M3.
Dee brings flair, problem solving and technical skills to the team through experience gained as a Race Car Technician for a very successful circuit racing outfit, looking after 2 ex works BMW Group A touring cars and most recently as Manager of a clothing store in London’s busy Soho.
