Workshop has been busy this week prepping the XK140 for the Masters Historic Festival at Brands Hatch and the Green Triumph TR4 for the CSCC meeting at Silverstone. Both cars required some work ahead of there races with new front shock absorbers going on both and some attention to the brakes.
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.
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.
