September always proves to be a hectic month with both Goodwood Revival and Spa Six Hours just two weeks apart. Following our success at Goodwood we prepped two more cars and headed off for Belgium. We brought with us the Jaguar XK140 of Joao Mira-Gomes and the TVR Grantura of Ernst Luthi. Both cars ran faultlessly all weekend. The XK140 ran in the Motor Racing Legends cobined race for the Woodcote Trophy and Stirling Moss trophy and the TVR ran in the Masters pre-66 GT race. Charles Rainford shared the drive with the owner of the TVR in the 90 minute race. Being the only car in their class they came home with a trophy for 1st in class!
John Cleland and Charles Rainford finished the weekend in second place overall in the St. Mary’s Trophy at Goodwood Revival 2019! Our 1958 Volvo PV544 has undergone a lot of development this year, all of which paid off this weekend. Both John and Charles drove the socks off the car to finish 2nd overall at the end of the weekend. Thanks again to all at Goodwood who work so hard to put on the event and all the other competitors who worked so hard to put on such a great race.
We’ve been tasked with rally prepping this pretty little Alfa Romeo 105 in just 4 weeks. We started with the full Safety Devices roll cage from Alfaholics. Also from Alfaholics came the suspension kit and a lovely set of 15″ wheels. Other works include fitting a set of Corbeau seats, Luke harnesses, foot rest, map light, bonnet pins and a set of mud flaps.
Jentree Classics brought in this lovely little Lotus Elan Sprint for a session on the rolling road. Until recently this car had been in the same family since it was new. A beautiful car in a not often seen colour.
The BMW 3.0 CSi project has come a long way recently. The engine is in the the fuel injection system has been installed. The car will be running on a triple set of Jenvey throttle bodies with an Emerald ECU. We’ve fitted the car with a set of Bilstein shock absorbers, uprated springs and poly bushes. Next up is the 5-speed gearbox conversion and to finish of the engine install.
The girls have made it to Romania in the little Bedford rascal. So far they’ve had little more than a blown fuse to slow them down. The quality of the roads leaves something to be desired but the landscape more than makes up for it. To follow Rodeney and His Rascal’s click here for Instagram or here for Facebook.
