We’re a small, professional race engine engineering business working with all types of race engines but specialising in motocross. I started the business from home five years ago following a career in motorsport spanning 30 years that encompassed a range of two and four-wheeled racing formulas.
I worked at TWR as Chief Engine Builder and Workshop Supervisor which included Group C sports prototypes; European touring car; Indy Car, Ducati WSB development; Aston Martin DB7 development & production; Jaguar XJ220; Super league Formula; Nascar; Caparo and Norton motorcycles to name a few.
My son Luke started motocross racing at a very early age and turned Pro at 16 years of age. He plays a major role in the business assisting with the day to day preparation of customers engines and bikes.
We also run a small team in the British and European Motocross Championships, but while our passion is for racing we can apply our expertise to any type of engine. We’re dedicated to delivering the highest quality of workmanship and customer service. My daughter works for Force India F1 Team so you could say racing is in the blood.
Our services may be very specialised, but we have a healthy customer base of around 300 people across the UK. There are not many people providing this service to the industry and we feel our experience and expertise gives the customer a better product and our aftercare service is second to none.
The bulk of our business is centred on off-road bikes but we cater for road racing engines as well. We offer race kits for all of the latest motocross machines both 2 and 4 stroke including fuel injection remaps, full engine tuning, rolling road set up and track support.
Our experience also includes Grand Prix and European championship level engines, again both 2 and 4 stroke, if you have an interest in MXGP then one of our race engines or race kits is out there.
Ultimately we are determined to push the business as much as we possibly can, our customer base is extremely important to us and the aftercare support is an area that promotes business.
In 2010, we joined the Westcott community as part of a joint venture with Steve Gray of Steve Gray Racing who occupied Units 14 and 421. So we rented one of his workshops, which worked really well, until he sadly passed away.
Having already built up a good relationship with the park staff, they were extremely accommodating with assisting us in finding other workshop premises. We moved into building S4 over six years ago and it was the best decision we ever made.
