It the case of Josh Barber’s Renault Clio three weeks is all we have! Josh is a young guy keen to get on track. Having just past his ARDS test and bought the Clio there were only three weeks to the first race he has entered in at Cadwell Park.

Josh has entered into the Pre 2005 championship of the Classic Touring Car Racing Club. The rules of this championship are designed to keep costs down by keeping cars to near standard form. This has meant the work on the car is mostly to comply with safety standards. The starting point was to strip the car of its interior trim, seats, carpets etc. Then came the biggest job, to build the roll cage.

That is where the car is now, race seats, race harness seat belts and fire extinguisher will go in next. The finished car and news from Josh’s first race will be updated on this site in a few weeks.

A new car for an old client. This impressive looking BMW was originally built and used as a track day car, hence it has two seats. The car was bought by a long term client of SVG Motor Sport and we have been tasked with the job of preparing the car so that it is eligible to compete as a Classic Thunder Saloon car with the Classic Touring Car Racing Club (CTCRC).

This BMW E36 328 Coupe is being built as SVG Motor Sports new car for hire. The car will be available for racing, eligible for BARC Saloon Series, and track days.

SVG will transport the car to any UK race circuit and prepare the car, and driver, for a day on track. SVG will set up the car for the circuit and conditions on the day.

The car build has started with a roll cage designed and built in-house by SVG, before being race prepared and livered with the SVG Motor Sport logo.
