Latest news for the Autumn Gathering of Power on 20th October!

Posted by | Posted in Latest News, Main | Posted on 28-09-2018

New-TVR-Griffith-to-be-displayed-at-the-NEC-Classic-Motor-ShowOnly 3 weeks until our Autumn Gathering of Power on Saturday 20th October from 10am-3pm.
We are delighted to confirm further details for the event. The events season might be coming to a close but we think we are saving the best till last!
We told you we are proud to be the first TVR Network Members to host the display of the brand new TVR Griffith and we can’t wait to show you around this amazing car. What we didn’t tell you was that TVR boss, Les Edgar will be there too! Who knows this car better than him?! As always, when car enthusiasts and TVR devotees are around Les is in great demand but gives his time willingly to answer questions and chat.
As an event exclusive, Topcats Racing will contribute £500 to the purchase of the new TVR Griffith for any clients who place their order on the day or place their intention to buy and pay their £5000 refundable deposit by 26th October!
Guaranteed to whip up a storm with savvy performance car fans, we’ve tempted away from his non-stop global supercar vlogging schedule, Schmee150, aka, Tim Burton to join us at the event to film content for his 8 million+ followers on social media! He will be adding to his online story as a TVR Griffith deposit holder. He’s not averse to the odd selfie with enthusiasts. Smile, you might be on camera!
Like a stick of Blackpool rock (ahem), we have TVR running right through us but we do have other skills. We are appointed installers for the GMR supercharger which turns a relatively benign 380BHP into a whopping 573BHP for the 4.3L AMV8 and 600BHP for the 4.7L! All this and with the Geyser water injection system actually improves MPG and reduces wear on the engine by it’s cooling effects! If you’re not convinced come and get yourself on the list for a demonstration with GMR boss, Graham Heane.
We have selected a handful of our customer’s cars for display in the workshop which shows our diverse engineering skills. What the customer wants the customer gets and we have some incredibly powerful, fun and quirky machinery to show you that have been upgraded, enhanced and improved!
To live up to our name, we will be rolling out our GT race cars and running them up for your pleasure – bring your earplugs! We are pleased to have along two of our team drivers, James Reveler and Gary Smith who are campaigning in the Ginetta G55 in GT Cup and fighting to win the championship overall as we head into the last round of the season. They will be around to sign prints for you.
Nick Fisher from Max Car Care will be doing car detailing demonstrations to show you how he could keep your car looking in tip top condition.
A new car park adjoining our workshop will be completed in time for the event and should accommodate 100+ cars. This means you won’t have to walk far to admire the myriad of cars that will be visiting, some of which we are assured are coming are very rare indeed!
Finally, we haven’t forgotten it will be lunch time and the food vans will be ready and waiting to take your order. Refreshments will be free all day inside the workshop. Onsite café, Waddesdon Deli, are open all day if our food vans don’t take your fancy.
The Topcats Racing team looks forward to seeing you on the 20th!

NEW DRIVER ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE 2018 GT CUP

Posted by | Posted in Latest News, Main, Racing News | Posted on 13-04-2018

 

IMG_1232Topcats Racing are delighted to announce that they will be running an exciting new driver and car line up for the 2018 GT Cup.

2017 GT Cup GTA Class co-contenders Mick Mercer and Gary Smith are rejoining the team with their Ginetta G55. However, Mercer will be joining in a managerial capacity and has handed his seat to a deserving young driver, 21 year old James Reveler.

Having successfully learnt his craft in kart championships in his junior years earning several championship titles, focus on his racing career soon moved to F4 but inexperience from both the team and driver made it a difficult transition despite regularly fighting within the top 10. When the series was upscaled to the British F3 Championship the bigger budget meant Reveler couldn’t follow suit.

IMG_1237Reveler made his debut in GT Cup at the last 2 meetings in 2017 where he secured two second places at Donington after being out of racing for 2 years and with no testing! … then 3rd, but due to a track limits infringement and a technicality with the safety car he lost that place, having made up the penalty difference. That was followed by 4th places at Snetterton.

The team hope that this opportunity will give Reveler the foothold he needs having realised his aspirations lay within the GT racing scene.

Reveler will be supported by main sponsor JG Wealth along with Clearview Mortgage Services, Duncan Phillips and The Lawson Practice.

The Ginetta G55 has been rebuilt over the Winter by Topcats Racing and is in the stages of fine tuning and the addition of sponsorship livery ready for testing next Friday before the race. The team have one of the longest GT Endurance racing credentials in the UK. Last year, together with owner driver Neil Huggins in his Lamborghini Gallardo they won the GT Cup GTB Championship and 3rd with their Marcos Mantis GT car which will also be competing again this year.

As always the team will provide all the skill, resources and knowledge to capitalise on such a strong, young and exciting driver line up. We hope that we can give James Reveler and Gary Smith every chance to win the championship this year.

The first round of the GT Cup is on 21st/22nd April at Donington Park.

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.

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.
