This Peugeot hatchback belongs to Rahim Baloo who is taking the step up from track days to novice race driver. His Peugeot 306 has come to SVG Motor Sport for the conversion from track day car to race car.

The main upgrades required are to meet the MSA safety standards. These include the build and installation of the roll cage. A race seat and five-point racing harness seat belts along with plumbed in fire extinguisher were also fitted.

To help the car handle better on track adjustable suspension struts have been installed. This will enable SVG to add more camber to the front wheels.

The car will be raced in the Classic Touring Car Racing Club’s Pre 2005 championship.

Clubman Race Car Build 750 500 Steve SVG

A recently completed project for SVG Motor Sport is this Sierra XR4 4×4 Cosworth. This one was built to compete in the Classic Touring Car Racing Club (CTCRC).

The car is a very good base for a clubmans race car. With its four-wheel drive and Cosworth power, it should be a competitive package without too much modification.

It was brought to SVG as a car already prepared for racing but it became apparent very quickly that there was one issue that needed fixing straight away. The rollcage was not only poorly constructed it used the wrong tubing. Rollcages must be built from seamless tubes. This one not only had seams some of the joints were only partially welded.

Craig Rainer, our rollcage builder, commented:

It would be like having an accident in a car full of javlins! If the seams didn’t break apart the welds certainly would and all this metal would be floating around in the car.

So the first job was to cut out the old cage and build a new one. The next stage was to bring the rest of the car up to current regulations with new racing seat, harnesses and fire extinguisher.

The car is now ready to race in 2017, watch this space as we will bring you updates as it hits the track with the CTCRC.

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).
