Mr Clark’s early business results were achieved alongside a successful motorsports career as a BMW 323 driver. In later years he also raced successfully in the British Touring Car Championships as well as winning countless trophies in Historic Racing Championships. John also supported the inaugural MINI race series in Scotland and his continued support for Scottish motor sport is wide ranging. The John Clark Motor Group has sponsored legendary Scottish motor racing team Ecurie Ecosse Young Drivers Initiative from 2010 and continues to help rising stars on the Scottish motor sport circuit.
Success with BMW in Aberdeen led to other premium brands being added to the portfolio and subsequently formed the foundations for the establishment of additional dealerships outside Aberdeen.
Today the John Clark Motor Group represents well-known automotive brands across Scotland. Audi, BMW, BMW Motorcycles, Jaguar, Land Rover, MINI, SEAT, ŠKODA, Volkswagen, Volkswagen Commercials, Renault, Dacia, Peugeot and Nissan all form part of the John Clark Motor Group portfolio. The Group now has sites in Aberdeen, Cupar, Dundee, Dunfermline, Edinburgh, Kirkcaldy and Perth that showcase the latest ranges of new cars and also stock a wide range of approved used cars. Three accident repair centres, along the North East coast of Scotland, also form part of the John Clark Motor Group.
Under his continued direction the John Clark Motor Group has gone from strength to strength and as well as being recognized as one of Scotland’s premier and largest motor businesses, the group recently won Retailer of the Year Award at the Automotive Management Awards 2015.
Aside from his love of cars and motorsport, Mr Clark has given considerable support to a number of charitable causes over the years including the Archie Foundation, cancer support services and more. The company is aiming to raise more than £200,000 for the Archie Foundation in support of its efforts to improve facilities for children and their families across Aberdeen, Tayside and Edinburgh.
