It seems that our very latest race results are now being taken seriously. We have never boasted of our personal racing experience although we have had our successes when we were racing the first Striker TR during development.
With Andy Charsley a previous Formula Ford Champion at the helm we learned a huge amount about winning races and car set up. This has also precipitated much of our development work.
This is in direct contrast to some of our competitors who continually go on about their own racing experience in other previous championships. We always say you are buying a car not our experience so we have always let the Striker do the talking and just mentioned the 25 year heritage in race success. We have tried to build on that with the development of upgrades, the lowered chassis and also the Fulcrum.
Well customers are now taking us seriously. In the workshop Martin is building a supercharged CBR 1000 RRR Striker TR that will be racing in the Welsh series this year by Mr Russell Haggerty. The next car to be built is one we have been commissioned to for a customer who wants a seriously quick track car. The spec of this is an over 200 bhp Hayabusa powered Striker TR with all the trick bits on it. This customer has come to us after a disastrous experience with one of our competitors so the pressure is on. However it was the performance on the race track that has brought these customers to us. Remember what Enso Ferrari said ‘Win on Sunday, sell on Monday’. This is starting to happen and we encourage anyone that wants a sure fired performance car for the road or track …….Come and see us
We are also installing black top 2 litre engines into two cars a Striker and a Caterham. This 170 bhp engine is proving to be popular as it is very well priced for a new engine of this power. It is the one in our Striker Challenge so it is fully tested in the format we fit.
We are still doing deals for those who want to build a budget Striker. Remember all Strikers are upgradable. Start with a budget build and then upgrade is a very cost effective way of building and having fun
