Chris Birkbeck


Owner, Birkbeck Rally School and The Arches Hotel


Chris Birkbeck’s Rally School in North Yorkshire delivers exciting rally driving experiences on a purpose built test facility that also includes a country house hotel which has been converted from the original farm buildings.


“I appointed Evolution in 2010 having been immediately impressed with their proactive and genuinely caring attitude. Since then, they have been pivotal in helping me to finance my business, taking the pressure off and facilitating conversations with the right people at the right time. They have helped me to grow my business by showing me how to develop and diversify into new opportunities including the creation of a hotel business which not only neatly bolts onto my existing business by providing visitors to the rally school with a place to stay, it has also created an interesting revenue stream of its own.”
