2019 has been a another busy year here at Nick Cartwright Specialist Cars. The service side has grown on 2018 with an increasing customer base entrusting their Ferraris with our highly experienced and enthusiastic technicians.
On the racing circuits Nick Cartwright himself has been flying the flag for the Scuderia Cartwright. Also Burgo Wharton and Pauline Goodwin competing with their 328 GTB group 3 class cars. As enthusiastic as ever Nick has continued to pursue his goal of clinching the class 4 honour which he achieved this year finishing just ahead of rival and friend Colin Sowter. Nick looks forward to defending his title next year. Jamie Cartwright is also planning a return to racing next year wetting his appetite at the Silverstone meeting this year where he raced a group 3 328. Some very close racing with Chris Butler in his group 3 328 was a highlight of the weekend and ended Jim's two year break from racing. What class Jamie will be running in next year is yet to be decided. Much deliberation and race preparation to be done in the meantime.
Now moving into the winter months our focus turns to longer term projects. We are currently restoring / re-commissioning several very special Dino's. Included in the clutch of low mileage highly original cars we are working are a 246 Chair and Flares, three 246 GTS and three GT's. We are also carrying out a painstaking restoration on a type L series 246. A completely untouched body made a for perfect reference during the body work stage. With chassis work and fibreglass panels in place we are now at the stage of dressing to body for paint. A very exciting project in what will no doubt produce one of the finest examples in existence.
A recent engine/gearbox removal on a Lamborghini Countach was also a highlight and a real 'roll your sleeves up job' with a lump emerging that one could only stand back and admire ! We look forward to hearing it crack back into life next year.
Moving into 2020 our commitment to deliver the best prepared sales cars on the market is a strong as ever with our carefully selected inventory of stock. Not every car we sell makes the open market. Please let us know your preferences when considering your next purchase.
From all at Nick Cartwright Specialist Cars we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year.
