Pistonheads Sunday Service here this Sunday!

Posted by | Posted in Latest News, Main | Posted on 26-08-2016

As we ready our venue for the arrival of approximately 200 cars of all makes, models, shapes, sizes and power, we look forward to showing you some of the things that we have going on in our workshop at the moment; TVR LS conversions in progress, completed ones, the infamous 753bhp LS9 Lingenfelter supercharged TVR Sagaris being prepped for the Brighton Speed Trials next weekend, an insane turbocharged Hemi Jeep and a range of other project cars, to which we have worked our magic, that will either be in our workshop or turning up to show off for the event.

We are TVR and Corvette specialists and we specialise in most V8 powered cars. If you want any advice or help with your car, team boss Warren Gilbert will be on hand. Just look for the Topcats shirt!

For the early risers, breakfast bacon or sausage rolls will be ready and waiting and available to purchase when you arrive as will burgers and snacks for the lunchtimers. Free tea, coffee, refreshments and biscuits will be available all morning.

If you haven’t made your mind up what to do this Sunday morning, log on here and sign yourself up! http://www.pistonheads.com/news/general/topcats-racing-sunday-service-28-08/34819

We look forward to seeing you!

IMG_2008As purveyors of racing, automotive high performance and adrenalin fuelled customer happiness, we have some imminent dates to appeal to most of our fellow petrolhead’s needs.

GT Cup – 13/14th August
This weekend the team will be competing at Donington Park in the GT Cup with drivers, Neil Huggins and Jeff Wyatt in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo car. If the prospect of free entry and a base and refreshments with the team is more tempting than a Saturday Tesco shop or Sunday lunch washing up then email charlotte@topcatsracing.com for details.

PHSSTopcatsracing_03[1]Pistonheads Sunday Service – 28th August
On Saturday, 28th August, we will be hosting Pistonheads Sunday Service for the 2nd year in a row.

Get your name down quickly though. Last year, all 300 places were filled within 2 days!
We will have many of our own and special customer cars on display as well as the infamous 753BHP TVR IMG_8779Sagaris Lingenfelter LS9, further enhanced in its armoury with a newly installed line lock and some super sticky Mickey Thompson’s, ready to attack and reign victorious (fingers crossed) at the Brighton Speed Trials the following weekend, which inevitably leads us to……

IMG_5403Brighton Speed Trials – 3rd September
Come and support us and cheer on owner driver, Paul ‘Blackie’ Black for this historic event. Last time we entered the car in 2014 we could have topped the leader board going by our terminal speed….if only we could have gotten her cleanly off the line. This time, with the right equipment, we could nail it!

Topcats Racing’s New Home is Almost Finished!

Posted by | Posted in Latest News | Posted on 28-03-2014

Workshop 1Topcats Racing is in the final stages of completion with the development of their brand new, custom built 8000sq.ft workshop at Westcott Venture Park, Near Aylesbury. The building has been designed to incl. 7 ramps in the main workshop that will allow the team to expand and develop the logistics and services of their TVR, Marcos and special projects division. It will also allow them to expand their racing division. Multiple ramps will enable the team to carry out LS engine conversions concurrently, reducing build times.

Logo signTopcats Racing have also built in an MOT station which has been approved for cars and Class 7 light goods vehicles. The scale and design of the building will allow permanent indoor storage for their state of the art race transporter with room to spare for long and short term storage of customer cars.

In tune with car owners who enjoy working on their own cars, Topcats Racing will have a dedicated ramp with its own set of tools that will allow customers to book ramp time in the safety, convenience and comfort of our workshop.

Topcats want to maintain the personal and inclusive relationship they enjoy with their customers and are incorporating an area for customers where they can relax and view their cars from the upstairs gallery.  Topcats will also be announcing dates for the Saturday Club which will be free to our customers where they can congregate and tinker with their cars, enjoy a coffee and a chat. Depending on idea’s and feedback, Topcats are hoping to introduce a few ‘workshops’ and activities to the club.

Director, Warren Gilbert, added, ‘We have had to wait a long time to turn our plans for this building into reality. We can now finally offer a bigger and better service to our customers. We have increased our workspace seven-fold and this means we can implement our new ideas, add services and reduce or even eliminate waiting times to provide a customer experience that we believe will be second to none’.

Topcats estimate that they will be opening the doors to their new facility in 4-6 weeks. In the meantime, it’s business as usual!

Please feel free to visit us. All we ask is that you call in advance and we will be delighted to show you around.
