The Lotus Europa of Martin Leach has been treated to a full race rebuild of it’s Vauxhall C20XE red top engine, Jenvey throttle bodies and DTA fuel injection. Martin competes regularly in French Hillclimbs and is looking forward to the extra power.
This Gold Leaf Lotus Europa is used for sprinting and hill climbing as well as road driving by our customer Martin Leach. The car needed some work ahead of a planned trip down to Classic Le Mans. A front end repair following a touch with the armco and a thorough service. We also fitted a dry cell battery and relocated it to the front of the car.
Always a varied selection of vehicles in the workshop and this week is no exception. Richard Clarks MG TF came in with back axle woes. We found 2 teeth missing from the pinion which in turn knocked out the differential bearings. The axle is being rebuilt now. Martin Leach brought his Red Top powered Lotus Europa hill climb car in for a service and MOT.
