An automotive business in Mansfield has proved it has the drive to succeed, after being named best small business in the East Midlands within the FSB WorldPay UK Business awards.
Shark Performance, which specialised in tuning European cars, was created by Ben Wardle in 2009 after he left his previous IT engineer role to focus his time on improving the performance of cars, by remapping engines. Ben has been shortlisted for the Young Entrepreneur of the Year title at the FSB WorldPay national small business awards, as well as being named as the overall regional winner in the East Midlands.
The firm has been awarded £500 and will now compete against 46 other businesses from across the UK in a glamorous final in London, where they will have the chance to win up to £10,000. More than 950 businesses entered the awards this year.
