BHR, Inc. was founded by Bob Hindson in May 1971 as an alternative to dealer repair and service. Bob was a factory trained Porsche technician and previously a factory team race driver for Datsun and Porsche. Bob was fundamental in the development of the “famous six” 914-6’s that were campaigned in 1970 and 1971 in the SCCA. Bob was chosen with the likes of Peter Gregg, Elliot Forbes Robinson, Richie Ginther and Alan Johnson to campaign the 914’s for Porsche. Bob’s most famous and notable achievement was back to back victories at the Daytona 24 hour in 1976 and 1977. Along with this, Bob also won 13 Divisional Championships in the SCCA. With Bob’s racing success’s BHR’s reputation for quality repair work was cemented.
Since the very beginning, BHR has trained and employed some of the most successful technicians in the country. Many have started their own businesses or have gone on to have successful careers with Porsche and other automobile manufacturers. BHR is extremely proud of all it’s present and past employees.
In 1988 BHR, Inc. became the first Bosch Authorized Secvice Center in the Midwest. BHR’s employees are trained by Bosch to properly service their products and systems that are installed in many vehicles. To this day BHR continues to have their employees trained by Bosch to maintain up to date service techiniques and information.
In 1998 Bob Hindson retired and sold BHR to Aaron Holstrom. Aaron was mentored and trained by Bob Hindson and Kevin Hinckle (another Master Porsche tech) after he graduated high school and began working at BHR. Aaron brought his love of racing and Volkwagen’s along with him to BHR. Since that time, Aaron has become a premier technician specializing in Porsche, VW and Audi.
In 2004 BHR entered into a partnership with APR, the worlds number one Audi and Volkswagen tuner. Through BHR, customers are able to select tuning components from the diverse product line of APR and have the selected components installed on your car by trained technicians with more tuning experience than ANY other shop in Kansas City.
Aaron Holstrom has continued the race winning tradition of BHR fielding two cars in the SCCA. In 2006 Aaron was awarded with the SCCA’s Rookie of the Year Award and winning the a Mid-West Divisional Championship for BHR!
