John was a lifetime professional engineer managing engineering projects around the world. Although the work was rewarding, he thought life was passing him by. So in 2003 he resigned his position. Twelve months later MotoExpress opened for business and John was running motorcycle tours in Spain, France and Italy and hosting weekend events at F1 and MotoGPs around Europe. The business has grown since those early days and now John concentrates his efforts entirely on Grand Prix events around the world.
When John was away working around the world Linda stayed at home and raised two daughters, ran the home and still found time to run a wedding video business and work part time as a fitness instructor. As the children grew up Linda went back to University to study French, Spanish and Computer Science. There then followed PA positions to senior executives in a number of major companies.
Now working in MotoExpress, Linda is the public face of MotoExpress at events around the world. She is a big fan of Spanish MotoGP riders Jorge Lorenzo and Dani Pedrosa. Linda is a familiar face at F1 races so much so that Lewis Hamilton now spots Linda waving her ‘Lewis’ flag and always singles her out for a special wave!
Hollie is our youngest daughter and works part time for MotoExpress. Hollie lives outside Melbourne Australia. From her new office base she is looking to expand the MotoExpress brand throughout the Southern hemisphere.
Kathryn is our eldest daughter. As a child growing up near the Silverstone circuit she would sneak away from school to watch the Formula 1 teams testing. One day Kathryn and her friends were rewarded for their enthusiasm by the Jordan Formula 1 team with an impromptu tour of their Silverstone facility; they even got pictures of themselves sitting in the cars!
Today Kathryn lives and works in Melbourne - Australia. During the summer months Kathryn flies home to help us run events at Silverstone and other European venues.
MotoExpress is a family business started in 2004. Owned and run by us; John and Linda Sinker, we are assisted by our daughters Hollie and Kathryn.
