Last year we built a new race engine for Sam Polley’s MGB. Sam competes in the CSCC’s Swinging 60’s and at last weeks Silverstone meeting Sam finished 3rd overall and was the quickest MGB in the field. For more info on historic race engines send us an email.
Sam Polley’s MGB was dropped back following the installation of his freshly rebuilt engine. We setup the fueling and ran the engine in on the rolling road prior to the CSCC meeting at Brands Hatch this last weekend. Despite fog putting an end to play Sam got some good laps in and managed to better his personal best by 1.5 seconds.
We have fitted our new all steel race 1860cc engine in the Metropolitan and we are ready to fire it up. No expense has been spared when building this engine with billet steel crank, rods and flywheel. With the split Weber 45’s it will be setup and run-in on the rolling road prior to a handful of races this summer. Watch out for this turquoise beast in your rear view mirror. It will be approaching quickly.
Over the past couple of months we have been working on an all new engine for our Metropolitan. We have spared nothing this time around. A billet steel crankshaft from Arrow, a set of billet steel con rods and a billet steel flywheel have all been meticulously balanced to within 0.5grams. Omega forged aluminium pistons and camshaft that will see us through to 8000rpm. We are aiming to get the car out on track in July. We’ve changed the rear springs since the cars last outing so will be anticipating some improved handling as well as the extra grunt.
