B884 VRJ- 1900CVH

If in doubt post some pics of the engine and we’ll be able to work out what it is. To add to the confusion, most 1900 tall blocks are run with UK heads/sumps etc etc so ignore the ancillaries and go entirely by the block. Pretty sure when Jim’s 1900 needed pistons and bits (inc a cam belt) it all ca...

SS1 1600Ti Sprint Car

The cars Been ticked up in a shed since castle combe in October, but it’s now back in the garage and prep is underway for the 2019 season. First job was to remove the water cooling from the turbo.

G130 YCF my first sprint car

I’ve been running the same Varley red top for getting on 10years - they seem super reliable! Jim’s racer was also still running the varley that Craig fitted way back (2006?).

Swoakes SS1 DET Sprint Car Work for 2019 begins

Nice, slicks always look so mean. Same size tyre (200/540/13) and same rims as The Michelin’s slicks I ran for a year (16/53/13s the year before). Medium compound too, so probably similar.

13x8 Weller wheels

Set of 4 13x8 ET15 Weller steels in black. These were bought new in Jun 2016 and have only ever been on my race car. Some minor chips and scratches but true and round. Dual PCD - 4x100 and 4x108. These are the perfect size to put sticky Kumho tyres on an SS1. Same as these: http://www.polleysport.co...

SS1 diff from Gloucestershire To Hampshire

Gavin, many thanks, this would be absolutely perfect. I can pop over to Goodwood to collect it if that makes your live easier? Hi Nick, I'll be going from North of Bristol to Goodwood / Chichester on Sat 9th Feb and returning on Sun 10th Feb - I could go via Petersfield in either direction I'm sure ...
