"Arrive & Drive" Race Weekends

 

 

Our cars are built from the best suitable donor cars we can find and all work is carried out in house, including engine and transmission builds. 

 

They are stripped with all cockpit sealer removed and painted in gloss black or textured dark grey.

 

As well as the standard regulation modifications needed, they are then given our 'full works' engine, exhaust system, trick transmissions, skeleton wiring harness and race specification clutches etc etc.

 

Of course they all come fully set up and corner weighted. All our cars are built underweight with ballast added depending on the driver's weight and circuit.

 

We would like, if possible, for an initial seat fitting prior to the event. This can be an awkward operation at the track, and we also take to opportunity to ballast the car correctly for the initial set up.

 

For Test Days and Race Weekends we use in-board data logging cameras (Racelogic VBOX) to help you review and improve your lap times and technique. This equipment allows us to see your timings for the different track sectors, meaning we can assess how and where tweaks can be made and helping you to improve.
