What do you think about our ideas for Saturday Club and a track day?

Posted by | Posted in Latest News | Posted on 11-11-2014

Formation FinishWe are in the process of planning our Saturday Club events for 2015. For those that are interested in participating we have a buy cialis 20mg couple of ideas that we would like to share with you to get your opinion.

We have confirmation from Prestige Detail (Swissvax), our preferred car detailing company, that they would be able to hold a class for general aftercare and correct washing practices or beginners machine polishing with discounted rates on products on the day.

Secondly, we want to gauge interest in running one or two track days at Silverstone, which is our local circuit. This would provide owners with the chance to drive their own cars on circuit who perhaps have never driven their car on track before, would like to better learn the handling abilities of their car and improve their driving skills with the assistance of our own qualified racing driver instructors.  It would also suit drivers who have track experience but want to improve and would like to take advantage of the extra support. It would be fully race team supported to provide drivers with mechanical and set up assistance throughout the day. We would also bring along 1 or 2 of our race cars (i.e. 600hp Marcos Mantis GT car and TVR Tuscan Challenge race car) to do fast lap rides at the end of the day. We would need to limit this to about 20 cars. Once we know we can make this cost effective we will be able to confirm a price.

These are ideas only at this stage and would welcome any other ideas too!

Ought to mention that the track day probably wouldn’t be on a Saturday…just to confuse you!

Saturday Club goes down a storm with added thunder!

Making some noise

Making some noise

Topcats Racing held their very first Saturday Club on the 11th October and the place was buzzing with over 50 cars of all makes and models in attendance including a truly beautiful Camaro SS called ‘Bruce’,  a MKII Cortina Drag car and a whole host of American and home grown muscle cars including TVR’s, Corvettes, Camaro’s, Aston Martins, Caterhams and Monaro’s to name just a few. We would like to take the opportunity to thank James and Ralph from the V8UK Club who, with so many of their members, helped to make it such a fun morning.

We were pleased to see so many of our own TVR and sports car customers there as well as many new faces who came to enjoy the morning and take advantage of our free vehicle inspections on the day and a delicious bacon roll!

Alistair photo (2)We were thrilled to be joined by Cerbera owner, former QPR player and 2012 Paralympian football star, Alastair Patrick-Hesleton. A man with a tragic but very inspiring story.

The vehicle inspections on both ramps kept Tom and Warren busy all morning while several cars took turns to rev their cars up inside the workshop to be captured on video. The combination of some seriously powerful engines with the acoustics of our workshop made for a truly thunderous soundtrack! A compilation of a whole host of V8 powered cars of all differing sounds can be viewed and heard on our Facebook page and check out this link for some noise!

Saturday Club Photo 5Topcats Racing took the opportunity to ask for suggestions from their guests for ideas for future Saturday Club events. There will be around 6 events in 2015 to be held throughout the year with dyno days, detailing and valeting workshops, DIY and maintenance, upgrades and accessories all in the pipeline.

Look out for our calendar of events which will be released early next year!

Topcats Racing launch their first Saturday Club event!

Posted by | Posted in Latest News | Posted on 26-09-2014

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERATopcats Racing have set a date to host their inaugural Saturday Club event which will be held from 9am-12pm on the 11th October.   This will be an opportunity for TVR, Marcos and all other sports and performance car owners to pop in for an informal gathering to taste test the formula that will set the basis for all our future events.

  Visitors will be welcomed with a free bacon roll, tea, coffee and refreshments whilst enjoying the company of other car enthusiasts under the roof of our brand new custom built 10,000sq.ft open plan workshop. You can be getting your hands dirty rampside or relax and enjoy a coffee upstairs at the Mezz cafe whilst looking down on the activities below.

Topcats Racing will free up two of their car ramps for the morning to give owners the opportunity to have their own cars up on the ramp and one or two of our engineers will be on hand to inspect and offer advice on your car if you want them to. Hands on owners might want to use the opportunity to do their own inspection or show other enthusiasts work they have done on their own cars.

For extra muscle, the V8UK Car Club will be bringing a handful of power crazy cars in the shape of dragsters, hotrods and the like to add variety to the morning.   If you have a car with a particularly noisy, modified, special exhaust sound we may take the opportunity to give them a quick rev up inside our wonderfully acoustic building.   You do not have to be a Topcats customer; just the owner of a sports, performance or modified car. Being a petrolhead is a prerequisite.

If you would like to attend please reply to our Facebook post https://www.facebook.com/topcatsracing?ref=hl with your name and the car that you will be bringing or you can email me at charlotte@topcatsracing.com. This will allow us to plan for catering and car parking. It will also ensure that you pass security and gain access to the site.

We look forward to seeing you!

Roar in the Valley! Because power and petrol is in our blood, we just can’t help ourselves; we are going to have a 1 minute Rev Off for all cars that want to take part. Free ear plugs will be supplied for those of a delicate nature!

BBC Top Gears Original Stig, Perry McCarthy will be kicking off proceedings and never fails to entertain the crowd. He will also bring copies of his highly acclaimed and top 20 twenty motorsport books of all time, ‘Flat Out, Flat Broke’ available for purchase at a reduced price and signing.

The highlight of the day will be showing off our incredible new facilities and most of all our very special creation, the TVR Sagaris LS9. Dynoed and mapped yesterday. You’ll have to come to the opening to find out how much punch this unbelievable car has got. We think it is the fastest road going TVR in the world! It will be unveiled and fired up and will hopefully go out for some burnouts just to show off (weather depending).

We have three fantastic local bands playing on our live music stage plus our very own compere for the day to keep us on track.

All visitors will receive a welcome pack with everything they need to take part!

Even if the weather’s a bit shaky, who cares!? We just take the party inside! After all we can get more people in our new workshop than a beach party in Ibiza!

See you there!
