CLASS-WINNING MOTORSPORT ENGINEERING

JOHNS ENGINEERING LTD.

THE PROFESSIONAL  ENGINEERS;

THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR A PROFESSIONAL JOB!

We’ve always had a strong interest in motorsport, and participate in Scottish Hillclimb and Sprinting events and championships. We originally campaigned an Alfa Romeo 75 3 litre in the “road car” classes, which was highly entertaining!

Pushing along at the Golspie Sprint

The car was developed with the emphasis on handling, with uprated roll bars, stiffer and lower springs, rose - jointed Watts linkages, spherical - jointed radius arms, all designed and made by ourselves; adjustable shocks and uprated brakes with Goodridge hoses were also fitted, and so on.

The aim was to produce a true “clubmans’ racer” which could be driven through the week and then raced at weekends, and it turned out to be exactly that; it’s so much fun that we’ve kept it, and can provide replicas of all the parts developed for it.

 

Our Stuart Taylor modified sports car, originally powered by a Honda Fireblade engine, but now converted to Suzuki Hayabusa power. Good power, low weight, fast, and great fun. Of course the car provides lots of scope for our engineering and development skills, and performs very well; if only the driver could keep up!

Services.

 

We specialise in bike - engine cars, older Alfas, and of course classic and vintage competition vehicles. We  provide a bespoke engineering service to the clubman competitor, and can also design and manufacture your ideas. We’re happy to provide technical advice, and we also provide stress and failure analysis services, and redesign where required.

 

We also provide these services for all classic and vintage cars and motorcycles, whether competition vehicles or not.
