Topcats Racing and owner Paul Black, don’t believe in doing things by half. Not one thing has been compromised on the newly converted LS7 Sagaris and neither has its first journey to Banus in Spain in a convoy of supercars (with the power to weight ratios confirmed, we already know the Sagaris will outperform every one of them). Paul is driving all the way from his home in Solihull to catch the ferry to Spain and onwards to the Southern Spanish circuit…..the day after he collected it from the team.

Topcats Racing launched their new Lotus Service division in December 2009 in response to the demand for a reliable and experienced service centre in the Buckinghamshire / Oxfordshire region. Moving into the Lotus marque has been a relatively easy and natural transition with a number of Lotus owners already on the client list. To promote the launch, Topcats Racing are offering Lotus owners £50 discount on their first service.
Topcats Racing have two more Chevy LS engine conversions underway, which indicates that owners understand just why this conversion makes so much sense, from both a cost and performance perspective.
Included in the conversion is a brand new ‘crate’ LS engine with custom exhaust headers coupled to an upgraded brand new TKO600 gearbox to handle the increase in power. A new clutch, flywheel and starter motor round up the package.
The major advantage over an upgrade of the original engine is that the cost of the new engine can potentially be offset against the sale of the original engine and gearbox. Once the conversion is complete, owners will be able to reduce their maintenance costs dramatically over the duration of ownership and will allow drivers to enjoy their cars to the full without the limitations and stress of engine reliability and maintenance.
