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!

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!

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.
