Topcats Racing open day, 10 Oct 2015

The Annual TVR Noughties event is on this Saturday, 23rd September at Topcats Racing from 10am!
All TVR’s are welcome to join us and the Bucks, Herts and Middx TVR Car Club for breakfast, courtesy of the team. Enjoy bacon rolls, pastries, tea, coffee and refreshments in our custom built workshop facility at Westcott Venture Park near Aylesbury, Bucks. You don’t have to be a car club member.
Once refreshed, why not benefit from a free ramp inspection with one of our engineers who will give your car a full top to bottom inspection, including a detailed report for your records.
We will of course have a range of cars on display in our 10,000sq.ft workshop to peruse and we will have a number of prizes to give away including a prize for the loudest car (using MSA approved monitor). There will be some exciting competitive challenges, pit stop style and a race simulator challenge with prizes for those who can beat a lap time that will be set on the morning by a 10 year old around Donington Park circuit! It will be harder to beat than you think!
As a TVR Network Member we will have lots of information and details on display and for you to take away for the new and fabulous TVR Griffith!
We will round the day off with the prize giving and for those who are continuing their day with the TVR Car Club will depart in convoy to the Coventry Motor Museum.
To find us, please don’t rely solely on your Sat Nav as the site is formerly MOD and the postcode can send you up the wrong road. Please check out our location on Google maps before you depart.
We are located just off the A41 between Aylesbury and Bicester. Follow the sign for Westcott from the A41 and the turning for Westcott Venture Park is almost immediately on your right.

We look forward to welcoming you on the 23rd!

Upcoming diary dates for our racing and sports car fans!

Posted by | Posted in Latest News, Main | Posted on 12-08-2016

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.
Bacon rolls, burgers and snacks will be available to purchase along with free tea, coffee and refreshments.
As usual, Pistonheads only announce the date and venue 1-2 weeks prior so we will let you know when it goes live as you MUST add your name to the list on the thread. If you aren’t already, subscribe to Pistonheads to enter. It’s completely free.
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!

Britcar Trophy Champion Steve Glynn

Topcats Racing are pleased to announce that their team driver Steve Glynn won the Britcar Trophy Championship at the final race of the season at Thruxton on Saturday in the TVR Sagaris.

Topcats Racing took over the running and preparation of the car before the start of this season with an overhaul and converting from LS3 to LS7 power ready to mount a serious challenge for the championship.

At the last race of the season , Glynn was on top form despite impending operations on damaged shoulder muscles! Wrestling a car with 500+hp and no power steering around Britain’s fastest and bumpiest circuit singled him out as this year’s deserving champion.

Glynn finished 5th overall in race one after suffering a tyre blow at 150mph putting paid to his chances of a win but an outright win in race two only served to prove his status.

Glynn will have revelled too in the fact that he beat his two Topcats Racing team owners Charlotte and Warren Gilbert sharing a car each with Jon Harrison and Rob Wilson respectively in their sister Marcos Mantis GT cars in the same class.

Duo, Gilbert and Harrison (car 54) failed to finish race one with a broken output shaft before Gilbert could to take over from Harrison.

Gilbert and Wilson in the sister car (60) were on point and finished second overall to the Class 1 Riley Daytona Prototype.

With Charlotte Gilbert starting race 2 from the back of the grid following race 1’s DNF, she made a great start managing to make her way back up to 3rd overall in time to hand over to Jon Harrison who maintained position to the chequered flag.

Warren Gilbert started from P2 on the grid behind the Riley, determined to pass the Riley for leading glory, maintained the lead for a lap and a half only to half spin at Noble, lose 3 places, regather and repass to catch back up with the Riley.

The Riley soon retired and Gilbert found himself leading the race as he pitted to hand over to Wilson. Wilson’s run didn’t last long as he too suffered a puncture dropping them down the board to finish 4th overall.
