2017 DUNLOP TVR CHALLENGE

2017

CWR/DG Sportscars owner Mike Luck took his Class C Chimaera to top honours in the 2017 Dunlop TVR Challenge at the weekend. Mike went into the last three rounds held at the Cheshire circuit, with a slim lead in the series from fellow TVR specialist owner Jason Clegg. Although the weather was changeable all day, causing some difficult tyre choices, Mike did enough to maintain the points lead and secure the series.

THE OLD AND THE NEW

2017

 

Sagaris and Grantura

A rare TVR photo opportunity cropped up at our workshop the other day when a 1960
Grantura indulged in a spot of sunbathing alongside a 2005 Sagaris. One of the oldest
TVRs in the country and one of the newest, giving a nice illustration of the broad range
of cars we care for.

We will be attending the NECBirmingham Practical Classics Restoration Show this weekend along with the TVR car club.

Officially the UK’s fastest growing classic car event, over 19,000 enthusiasts joined us for the Practical Classics Restoration & Classic Car Show, bringing together all aspects of classic motoring. From barn finds discovered after many years of storage and those project cars that have stalled in an owner’s garage, to restorations just getting back on the road and those pristine marques with gleaming brightwork and proud as punch owners.

If you need help and advice from our motoring experts and celebrities, want to buy the tools to do the job yourself or find a specialist restorer who can tackle the work on your behalf, this is the show for you. With cars for sale from both dealers and Silverstone Auctions, live demonstrations, and over 650 cars on display, don’t miss the classic motoring scene’s season opener on 5th and 6th March 2016.

Autocar Review

2009
"The joyously precise chassis goes a long way to helping control a sudden boost from the supercharger." "A car that is comfortable, well-built and polished enough to be a true threat to the established competition."

Robb Report July 2009 issue

2009
"The Farbio accelerates relentlessly, regardless of which gear it is in." "If this ground-hugging missile's speed does not instantly hook you, its sound will." "In addition to its well-honed dynamics, the GTS400 offers a beautifully damped ride quality."

2009
"Britain's Got Talent." "It's carbon fibre body makes it the lightest." "It's not short of grunt." "The Farbio finds more drive and then slips into a gentle slide with well-telegraphed, confidence inspiring ease."
