The Annual TVR Noughties event is on this Saturday, 23rd September at Topcats Racing from 10am!
All TVR’s are welcome to join us and the Bucks, Herts and Middx TVR Car Club for breakfast, courtesy of the team. Enjoy bacon rolls, pastries, tea, coffee and refreshments in our custom built workshop facility at Westcott Venture Park near Aylesbury, Bucks. You don’t have to be a car club member.
Once refreshed, why not benefit from a free ramp inspection with one of our engineers who will give your car a full top to bottom inspection, including a detailed report for your records.
We will of course have a range of cars on display in our 10,000sq.ft workshop to peruse and we will have a number of prizes to give away including a prize for the loudest car (using MSA approved monitor). There will be some exciting competitive challenges, pit stop style and a race simulator challenge with prizes for those who can beat a lap time that will be set on the morning by a 10 year old around Donington Park circuit! It will be harder to beat than you think!
As a TVR Network Member we will have lots of information and details on display and for you to take away for the new and fabulous TVR Griffith!
We will round the day off with the prize giving and for those who are continuing their day with the TVR Car Club will depart in convoy to the Coventry Motor Museum.
To find us, please don’t rely solely on your Sat Nav as the site is formerly MOD and the postcode can send you up the wrong road. Please check out our location on Google maps before you depart.
We are located just off the A41 between Aylesbury and Bicester. Follow the sign for Westcott from the A41 and the turning for Westcott Venture Park is almost immediately on your right.

We look forward to welcoming you on the 23rd!

TVR TO UNVEIL NEW CAR AT GOODWOOD REVIVAL IN SEPTEMBER
  • TVR announces that it will unveil its new car to the public at the Goodwood Revival on 8th September
  • TVR is the first car manufacturer to launch a brand new vehicle at the world-renowned Revival event
  • To celebrate the marque’s 70th anniversary, the new car will be accompanied by a display of historic TVRs
  • With only 500 Launch Edition cars earmarked for production, TVR will soon stop taking further orders until the public unveiling

5th June, 2017: The iconic British sports car maker, TVR, is delighted to announce that it will be unveiling its eagerly awaited new sports car to the public at the Goodwood Revival on 8-10 September, 2017.

Created in conjunction with Gordon Murray Design, the 1200 kg car promises incredible 200mph performance and 0-60mph in less than 4 seconds. With the special launch edition car being offered at under £90,000, anticipation and demand for the 400BHP per tonne, five-litre, Cosworth developed V8-powered car is already at fever-pitch.

The unveiling of the car at the Goodwood Revival is a first for the world-renowned Sussex-based event. The new car will go on display in the ‘Earls Court’ building at the Revival, and will be showcased at the centre of a display which features a number of older, heritage TVRs, in celebration of the British marque’s 70th anniversary.

Speaking of the planned public launch, Les Edgar, Chairman of TVR said: “We are incredibly excited to be unveiling the new car at the Goodwood Revival. It’s the first time a global launch of a new car has occurred at the event, and it seems an entirely appropriate place for us to do it, with the marque’s motorsport heritage and an enthusiastic audience of dedicated car fans – and in our 70th anniversary year. After a series of secret private viewings organised for the benefit of existing customers for the new car, we know that we have a surefire hit on our hands, and very much look forward to seeing the public reaction in September.”

Speaking on behalf of the Revival, Lord March said, “We are delighted that TVR will feature so strongly over the Revival weekend this year. It is entirely fitting that TVR, as such an iconic British marque, should unveil what will be a very exciting entrant to the global sports car market at our iconic British event and I very much look forward to welcoming them to the Revival in September”.

TVR has held back a small allocation of the 500 Launch Edition cars for the public unveiling, so will soon close the order book, before re-opening it on the 8th September.

At last, the covers are coming off the new TVR! Are you invited?

Posted by | Posted in Latest News, Main | Posted on 09-01-2017

phmeetstvr_016We are sure news will have spread fast that TVR have announced dates for the eagerly awaited reveal of the new car with 2 morning and 2 afternoon sessions each day over the weekends of 18th/19th and 25/26th March, 2017.

Grouping into these sessions will allow for a much more intimate event for depositors and interaction with key TVR personnel, including Chairman, Les Edgar.

To ratify the bond with their depositors, TVR are giving exclusive viewing to them, along with TVR Network Members only, well in advance of public disclosure later in the year.

Needless to say, as the reveal will be held within TVR’s design studio at Gordon Murray Design near Guildford, not only is the TVR top secret, but other projects on site too and all visitors will have to sign a non-disclosure agreement.

tvr-teaserAs TVR Network Members, Topcats Racing will also be in attendance and as such would like to arrange, if possible, the opportunity for our own customers who have paid their deposits through us to attend the same session.  A great chance for us all to to catch up with each other!

Invitations from TVR are on a first come, first served basis and we will do our best to co-ordinate this. Please email us with your preferred morning/afternoon date and we will see if there is a majority preference we can fit around.

This will be a defining moment for depositors and a major milestone towards the arrival of their very own, new TVR. This date announcement marks the final few weeks that customers will be able to place a deposit for the Launch Edition model which includes the iStream Carbon chassis in the price (TBA) along with other upgrades that will become optional extra’s once the books close shortly after the reveal.

img_8907-300x225The Spring Reveal will no doubt be stirring the soul of many. If you would like to put your name on one of the remaining few Launch Edition cars and be there for probably the most exciting automotive revelation of 2017, please give us a call on 01296 655109 or email charlotte@topcatsracing.com and we can set the wheels in motion!

 

We look forward to seeing you in March!

Join us on the GMR Stand at the Autosport Show 12-15th January!

Posted by | Posted in Latest News, Main | Posted on 09-01-2017

gmr-engine-bayJoin us on the GMR Stand ….at the Autosport Show 12-15th January!

This year’s Autosport Show marks the anniversary of our first encounter with GMR Superchargers at their stand at Autosport 2016. Our curiosity of their Aston Martin V8 Vantage supercharger rapidly turned into a desire to get involved with their product and within a few weeks we had negotiated with them to appoint us as installers.

At this year’s Autosport Show we are very proud to be joining them on their stand No. 19250 to represent them and the GMR Geyser supercharger system that transforms the lacklustre, underpowered V8 4.3 Vantage into a 583BHP (the 4.7 tops 600BHP!), musclebound challenger for any supercar. Aston-ishingly, it improves fuel economy and reduces wear and tear to the engine through it’s super cool running, thanks to GMR’s Geyser water injected system.

nnoja1drThe media have raved about it and other performance upgrade competitors have tried to find fault and failed. There are many impressive accomplishments to its name; not least on a trip to Nurburgring last year where it slayed AM Test Centre’s own GT4 race car whilst on road tyres and with passenger!

You will be able to view all of GMR’s adventures on their big screen at the stand.

Not only that, GMR’s demonstrator will be at the show waiting outside for you to experience the phenomenal, velvety torque for real.

 

downloadIf you are planning a visit the show, please come and see us. We would love to make you a coffee and show you the beautiful engineering involved to create this wonderful product, along with a range of other optional upgrades to complement the package, including exhaust systems, brakes, manifolds and custom AMV8 Nitron suspension.

 

We look forward to see you there!

Wishing you all a Very Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas

Just 2 days until Christmas and we are still very busy in the workshop. 2016 has been our best year since Topcats Racing began; servicing, repairing and delivering performance upgrades to more customers than ever before.
We have big plans for next year and we believe that by continuing to invest in services for our customers, coupled with ensuring the highest levels of customer satisfaction, we can have another great year in 2017.
We are setting new dates for our calendar of events for next year including TVR Noughties, Corvette Car Club and our own ramp days and we will announce these in the coming weeks.
TVR will, at last, be unveiling the production car that we have all been waiting for in the New Year, with exclusive first viewing for us as Network Members and our deposit holder customers. We are very excited that we will have one at our workshop available for customers to view and demo.
Finally, whilst it has been a good year for us, we cannot ignore the atrocities that are destroying the lives of families in Syria, Yemen and surrounding countries. This year we have chosen to donate £350 to the Syria and Yemen Crisis appeals.
That just leaves us to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Topcats first of three AMV8 GMR Supercharger installations starts next month!

Posted by | Posted in Latest News, Main | Posted on 21-09-2016

gmr-1Topcats Racing, as appointed GMR Supercharger installers, are delighted to confirm that they will be starting the first of three installations for clients for the highly acclaimed GMR Supercharger, designed and developed exclusively for Aston Martin V8 Vantages.

It’s reputation for power and reliability is firmly established on the back of several years of development and with GMR supercharged Vantages having now covered over 150k problem-free miles.  GMR can boast endurance racing, sprints and hillclimb successes across numerous road and racing GMR Supercharged Aston Martin V8 Vantages.

 

A fast growing community of admirers continues amongst motoring professionals, media and new clients longing for the performance to match the looks of their AMV8’s.

 

The first installation will commence week beginning 17th October, taking a few days until completion.

Topcats Racing has vast experience with complex installations, conversions and modifications, most notably as the leading UK specialist for the installation of Chevrolet LS engines into TVR’s.

The process has, for years, been an opportunity for Topcats Racing to invite clients to take an interactive role in their installation. Clients come to view the work in progress, allowing them a unique insight into the build.

 

GMR Supercharger clients will be afforded the same opportunity and will be invited to visit for an inspection during the installation. They will be able to ask questions and take pictures for their own portfolio.

 

As with all new clients, Topcats Racing provides a FREE full top to bottom vehicle inspection and the owner is welcome to stay and view it with the engineer. A full written report is given to the owner with any advisories.

This can be done at the time of a GMR installation booking or at the owner’s convenience.

 

For clients who are interested in a GMR Supercharger installation please contact Topcats Racing on 01296 655109 or email: info at topcatsracing.com and they will be happy to advise you on their exclusive current price offers.

They will also be able to advise you should you wish to finance. Interest rates are low and may be a good opportunity to take advantage of them!

You are likely to save more on your fuel economy over the year once the Geyser water injected supercharger is installed than the yearly interest payable on your loan!

 

In the meantime, here is a brief overview of the GMR Superchargers:

 

  • Converts AMV8 Vantages from a measly 380BHP to a musclebound 583BHP! More for the 4.7L!
  • Geyser Water injection charge cooling system which significantly improves fuel economy and wear and tear on the engine.
  • No increased stress on clutches or gearboxes.
  • Remarkable low speed torque levels.
  • Highest quality materials and manufacture in keeping with AM.
  • NEW ‘Unique to car’ Powergate plug in data box enabling owner to remotely access mapping updates for power and torque direct from GMR without having to visit.

We look forward to hearing from you.

The Topcats Racing and GMR team.
