The 1st and 3rd placed Jaguar Mk1s in the Jack Sears Trophy, of John Young and Grant Williams respectively, were tuned on our rolling road prior to Goodwood Revival. We found decent gains for both cars.
We had the pleasure of spending a morning with our good friend Grant Williams this week. He brought the famous Mk1 Jaguar ‘BUY 1’ in for some rolling road time. It’s always great to catch up with Grant and we were able to find some decent power gains from the 3.8 litre straight six. Looking forward to seeing Grant race the car in the Jack Sears Trophy on Saturday at Goodwood Revival.
Following a busy couple of weeks in preparation the works Milano MG Special has made it’s UK debut at Mallory Park with the HRDC. The car was a long from MSA racing standards when it came in so a lot of work was required to get it ready for scrutineering. We had a huge list to attend to including the electrics, fuel system, roll bar, and extinguisher system. Once at Mallory Park the car developed a misfire in qualifying due to some errant breaker points. Once rectified the car showed huge potential making it up to 5th overall.
This beautiful Series 1 Jaguar E-type came in for a full inspection, major service and repairs. There were a few large jobs to carry out including works to the rear subframe and drivetrain. We replaced all of the front suspension bushes and a couple of ball joints. We replaced the water pump, adjusted the cam tensioner and carried out an engine service. We’ve fitted a set of static seat belts and had the car MOT’d.
We love specials, especially the Austin 7’s. This one has recently been completed and came in for a session on the rolling road. The car has been built from scratch using an Austin 7 chassis and running gear. It’s obviously been heavy modified and features unique steel body work and an early Reliant engine, sometimes with a blower.
