Back for the 2015 season is the Mira-Gomez Jaguar XK140. We picked the car up from Dover last week and put it straight on the lift for a quick prep prior to this weekends Woodcote Trophy race at the Donington Historic Festival. The car will also be competing at Masters Historic festival at Brands Hatch and the Silverstone Classic.

Rebuilt differential for Tim Abbott’s BMW 1800TI

Nigel at Retro Engineering has done an excellent job of rebuilding the differentials in the BMW’s. The limited slip units have been rebuilt also with the ramp angles set to 30/30 and the preload adjusted. A new pinion nut and solid spacer have been fitted as the nuts have a tendency to come loose causing untold damage. The car is out at Brands Hatch GP circuit today in preparation for the Masters Historic Festival on May 23rd and 24th.
