Fresh Race Preparation for a Fiat 1100 Historic Racer

We’ve been asked to carry out a fresh race preparation on this Fiat 1100. The car is already a race car and was purchased recently from an auction. The car is unknown to the new owner so they wanted to get it checked out before hitting the track. Additionally, it’s good to set a baseline on the rolling road so we can monitor the health and performance of the engine.

We started with a thorough front to rear checkover and spanner check. Then, we made a report of areas we thought needed attention. Overall, the Fiat was in pretty good shape. We had to source a handbrake cable and fabricate some 1-piece wheel spacers for the rear. Next, we attended to the electrics and got all the lights working. Following that, we got the engine running and and set the car up on the rolling road. Now the fresh race preparation on this Fiat is complete we are satisfied it works and that it meets safety standards. Next we head to Brands Hatch so the new owners can start enjoying it.
