IMG_7951A Morning on the Ramps!

We are 3 days away from our Morning on the Ramps event at our custom built workshop at Westcott Venture Park, Westcott, Near Aylesbury this Saturday from 9am-1pm. We have a few slots remaining if you want us to put your car up on the ramp for an inspection with one of our engineers and it will give you the chance to ask advice if you have any concerns or plans for the car. If you enjoy doing some maintenance on the car yourself and are unsure on some of the how to’s, ask away!

Booking your car on the ramp is not obligatory, please come and see us if you just fancy a drive out, a bit of socialising and a wander around our workshop and cars on display!

Tea, coffee and refreshments will be in plentiful supply free of charge and delicious, hot bacon rolls will be available at £1.50 each.

Convoy (2)As we near the V8UK Full Power Launch on Sunday 12th April, we can confirm that a fabulous 20 mile convoy route through the Buckinghamshire countryside, all with left hand turns only to keep the convoy together and some strategically placed people at the junctions to ensure a continuous flow from the Topcats workshop has been set. To record the occasion we will have not only a helicopter but also a drone to film the full length of the convoy before it sets off. We have a 1 1/2 mile avenue on a private estate to enable us to get all cars into formation. We will have a range of V8 products on display including engines on stands, upgrades and parts for your car. Photographer artist, Richard Duckham will be on hand to take photos of your pride and joy and work his magic to make it look truly spectacular. You will be able to purchase the images from a range of different formats incl. banners and canvases. Competitions and prizes will be awarded by the V8UK Club. A catering unit will be here to sell bacon rolls in the morning and fish and chips and burgers for lunch! Free tea and coffee until finishing time at about 2pm. Let’s see how long we can make this convoy! See you there!

* our Trackday event will be planned around the input we receive from those that would like to participate and will include drivers own cars on track / fast lap rides / driving our race cars on track / instruction / team support / consensus on amount of track time for drivers depending on costs. At this point we would appreciate your opinion on whether this is something you would be interested in doing and what you would like to do / how you would like to see the day arranged.  For those that book and wish to have their cars noise tested and inspected we could arrange this to be done at the Saturday Club event in July or by prior arrangement.

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!

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!
