Something different this week. This gorgeous Westfield has just been purchased by one of our customers who intends to do some track days with it. Although built a little while ago, it has seen very little use but it required a full geometry set up, some bump steer issues resolved and corner weights checking and setting. If you require a similar service for your race, rally or track day car, please call Clive on 01284 850690 to discuss how we may be able to help. ... See MoreSee Less
Now the dust has settled on what was a fairly busy bank holiday weekend, it's time to catch up.On Saturday morning we took delivery of this full spec Citroen C2R2 Max from a new customer. He had purchased the car just prior to the recent Corbeau Seats Clacton Rally but although he finished what was quite a tough event, the car had suffered from some handling and engine issues. Work has already started and we will report progress later.Our main focus this weekend was a trip to a very cold Silverstone for the second round of this years CSCC Gold Arts Mag 7's series with Gregg Catton in his Caterham R400.A large grid of 39 cars lined up for qualifying. After the 30 minute session Gregg was 21st overall and 3rd in class, but with just 0.5 seconds covering the next 6 drivers, the was lots to play for.Gregg made a fantastic start to the 40 minute race, gaining 6 places on the first lap. His progress continued to see him as high as 5th overall before taking his compulsory 1 minute stop/go pit stop on lap 16. He finally finished a very happy 13th overall and 2nd in class.The finishing position for the main race were to form the grid for the 15 minute sprint race at the end of the day but with race winner Stephen Nuttall none starting, Gregg moved up a spot on the grid. A superb race was to follow with Gregg in the centre of a bunch of 8 cars for the much of the race. His final position was 10th overall and 2nd in class. All drivers were complimented by the Clerk of the Course for excellent driving standards during both races.Well done Gregg. It was also the first hill climb of the year at Shelsley Walsh for Paul Tebbett in the mighty 3.5litre Rover SD1. Again conditions were rather cold but dry and Paul recorded a time just 0.06 seconds slower than his best time last year. He said "very pleased, not run here for a while and it's only a old fart driving old school machinery compared to the others in class with lightweight laptop controlled ignition, injection etc. etc." We think your analysis of the driver may be a little harsh.Congratulations to all and let's hope for more of the same as the season continues. ...

In 2014 TME Motorsport Engineering completed a 3 year project to build a replica of one of the 'works' Ford RS 200's. The car was built from one of the original road car versions (Chassis No; 123) and every effort was made to try and recreate a car as close to the original as possible.The finished car made its debut on the 2014 Killarney International Rally of the Lakes in Ireland, generating a lot of interest. This is Jaye Jordon and John McElhinney on the climb up the famous Molls Gap Stage.The car now resides in a private collection and can be seen occasionally at displays throughout the UK.
