Earlier today John Pearson brought his 'Group 4' Escort back to us after Edward's Motorsport had fabricated a brand new exhaust manifold to go with the new engine. It's a stunning piece of work. Now we can finish the rest of the updates that John has requested. ... See MoreSee Less

My son has done a fair bit of work with Mike Edwards, the quality is superb.

Bet it sounds immense John. Just need to have a tear up on the grass paddock outside Clive’s workshop

Another Edwards creative work of art.

Looks sweet

More "Group 4" - Bullshit - It's Zetec - Why ?

When’s the next time out?

Earlier this year we collected this original Series 1 Talbot Sunbeam Lotus from a local enthusiast with the instruction of determining what was required to put the car back on the road. He had bought it as an unfinished project 8 years ago and it had remained dry stored in his garage since then.The body shell is original and is in very good condition but mechanically the car is in need of lots of TLC. We now have all major components stripped and we have determined what work we need to do. In one simple word - lots.The main problem is the engine. A lack of previous proper servicing has nearly resulted in a badly damaged engine but fortunately we got there just in time. The biggest issue was finding water in the sump and after pressure testing the water system we found leaks on the base of the liners on 1 &4. So lots of work to do over the next few months to restore the car back to original unmolested show room specification. We will post further updates as progress continues. ... See MoreSee Less

Today we were at the Rix Engineering Wethersfield Stages rally in Essex with Mark Peterson and Laura Christmas in the Citroen C2R2 Max.This was the first time they had done a rally together so a cautious start on stage one was a sensible approach as they settled in. But on stage 2 they took the lead in the class and continued to build on it. After a trouble free rally, they eventually finishing 16 overall and won their class by 1 minute and 34 seconds. Congratulations to you both. ... See MoreSee Less

Following our successful weekend at Anglesey with Gregg Catton a couple of weeks ago, we have a break from events for the next few weekends. But the is still plenty to do in the workshop. Thanks to Piero at X Power Engines for the rebuild of John Pearson's XE engine. The car is now away having a new exhaust manifold fabricated before we can finish all the upgrades and re-mapping.Work on the restoration of the Series 1 Talbot Sunbeam Lotus continues apace. As the car has stood for many years and the engine has not been run, we feared that the lack of coolant in the rad may indicate some issues. The result of a bore scope of the engine found small traces of water in No.3 cylinder so the decision was made to remove the engine and open it up. We think it's fair we were just in time. The oil puck up was almost completely blocked and both mains and big end bearings show significant signs of wear. On the plus side, the head, crank and bores all appear to be in good condition. With a busy few weeks ahead, we have also taken the opportunity to repaint the workshop floor while John Pearsons car is away and we await the return ofGregg Cattons Caterham for re-prep ahead of his next meeting at Brands at the end of the month. ...
