Huge and Thunderous Full Power Launch 2016!

Posted by | Posted in Latest News, Main | Posted on 04-04-2016

IMG_8630What a monster event yesterday with the V8UK Full Power Launch 2016! This year’s event exceeded even last years numbers with over 300 cars arriving at Topcats Racing’s workshop facility near Aylesbury, Bucks!

With fantastic weather again, pumping music, V8 noise, food, drink and a dyno to enthral the crowds, which by the way was won by a stunning Camaro blowing the away the nearest rival by 125bhp with a staggering 749bhp!, it was impossible not to have a great time. The highlight? The convoy which may well be one of the biggest in the UK! It snaked up and over the Buckinghamshire hills and through the villages bringing people out of their houses to investigate the rumble! The response was great with waves and thumbs up! Thank you to all the drivers who drove carefully and with respect en route and back to Topcats Racing to enjoy the afternoon in the sunshine.

IMG_8617We would like to thank the boys from the V8UK Club for allowing us to host again this year.

A very big thank you to all those who took the time to make their cars beautiful and bring them to us for the event, some of whom had travelled far to get here. We were delighted to see our TVR, Corvette and Camaro guys arrive in force as well as all others who brought their amazing machines for everyone to view in wonderment!

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!

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!

Since Topcats Racing completed the conversion of their T350 with the now revered LS7 engine in November 2012, its purpose was to demonstrate to clients its performance, above all, but also to show how tractable and even relaxing it could be when the driver wants it to be.

Topcats Racing Sagaris LS7

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.
