Racing and Trips Galore

This month has been a busy one both inside and outside the factory. The recently restored Bugatti Type 51 seen in May's News makes an appearance again this month, as it was raced in the Williams Trophy, held by the Bugatti Owners Club and the Vintage Sports Car Club at Cadwell Park.

In the hands of Simon Diffey, the T51 was the first petrol-powered finisher (fourth overall), and was also awarded the AJB Trophy for Best Turned Out Car. The weekend's activities also included an extensive talk by Dick Crosthwaite to the Bugatti Owners Club dinner at the Petwood House Hotel. Dick's speech included talking about his wealth of personal and professional experience with the Bugatti name, as well as a few humorous stories of his.

 

In other news away from the factory, Ollie Crosthwaite's split screen VW was treated to its first outing of the year, which was to Sussex-based VW Heritage's New Warehouse Preview Party. This was in preparation for bigger trips later in the year.

A historic victory was achieved by one our valued customers this month, too. In the 2014 Modena Cento Ore Classic, the E Type of Walker & Redhouse powered to victory in the pre-1965 class using a Crosthwaite & Gardiner LWE engine.

Seventy teams from all over the world took part in the event, with an estimated total value for the grid being in the region of 50 million Euros, and included eleven Jaguars, nineteen Porsches, fifteen Ferraris, seven Alfa Romeos and offerings from Ford, AC, Aston Martin, Maserati, Lancia, MG and Shelby. The route takes in challenging closed road stages and track stages over four days of driving, ending in the historic town of Modena.

Finally, inside the Crosthwaite & Gardiner machine shop doors, yet more wheels have been produced. To show the precision we use to manufacture these wheels, which are machined from magnesium castings, we placed a camera on the boring bar of one of our CNC lathes and filmed one of the processes.
