Our days racing is over, another trouble free and successful day for Gregg with a class win in both races. Thankfully Gregg managed to avoid the accidents and carnage in both races which saw two safety car periods in race one and one in the second race. The decision to stay out behind the pace car in race one when the pit lane opened ensured that Gregg managed to avoid the chaos in the pit lane which saw several drivers incur time penalties for pit stop infringements. Not the best days racing but still good to be back at it. ... See MoreSee Less
Great to be back doing some racing after the long Covid-19 enforced break. We are at a pleasantly warm Donington with Gregg Catton and his Caterham R400 for the CSCC Gold Arts Magnificent 7s meeting. Qualifying completed with no problems. From a field of 45, Gregg has qualified for race one in 22nd spot on the grid and 3rd in class.This afternoon we have one 40 minute race with compulsory stpp/go pit stop and the later a 15 minute sprint race. Good luck Gregg. ... See MoreSee Less
Unfortunately today didn't quite go to plan for Kasia Nicklin and Darren Scales in the mighty Micra. After a fantastic start on stage 1 taking an early class lead, all came to an end on stage 4 with driveshaft failure. Comiserations to Kasia and Daz, but well done to all the clubs involved in organizing the rally. What a pity spectators were not allowed. Great to catch up with so many people. ... See MoreSee Less

With an increasing demand for fabrication and shell work we recently built a new fab shop so as to separate this work from rest of the workshop. First major job was to fit the new FIA /Motorsport UK specification seat rails to a customers car. A lot of work in building up the inner sill mounts so as to ensure seat locations remain exactly the same but very happy with them. Let's hope they never need to be tested.Looking forward to starting Project Fetch in earnest now. ... See MoreSee Less
Pain in the arse, those new seat rails.
