A Note from a happy customer!

"A very quick word to say that the new 1500 in the eleven went like stink at Mallory.

We had it on the rolling road and retuned the carbs and ign after the Oulton disaster.

Calcs said 136hp at the wheels and there was noticeably more power than my previous engine … although quite top – endy, and it was sufficiently powerful to break a half-shaft cleanly after about 20 laps.

I was driving well and I lapped about 3 secs quicker than my previous best and I reckon that at least half of that was the motor!

Thanks Glyn."

One of our engines finishes fourth at Goodwood.

Our engine installed in John Bond-Smith’s Rejo Mk 3/4 before starting in the Madgwick Cup at last years Goodwood Revival.

Driven by Miles Griffiths and guest driver Paul Radisich, it started eighth and came home fourth, only beaten by Lotus 15s with 2 or 2.5 litre FPF power.

Demoted to fifth in the final classification due to a (very modest) startline indiscretion by Paul Radisich.
