458 Challenge

The winter months are a great time to undertake Ferrari restoration projects which have recently included a Ferrari 246 Dino engine and gearbox rebuild. We are also converting a Ferrari 246 Dino engine to run on unleaded fuel. Both Ferrari cars are coming to the final stages of their ground up restorations.

The ride could not have gone any better with hardly any technical problems along the way. That is not to say the ride was easy. I hope you enjoy this short account from each day to share our adventure with you.

On May the 1st Ben Cartwright will be embarking on Challenge to cycle from Lands End to John o Groats in 8 days along with 4 other cyclists, all in aid of Matlock Mencap where Ben has been a volunteer for the last 7 years. A fellow volunteer has kindly offered his valued support by driving along side the cyclists with a variety of spares and supplies onboard.

We have just carried out a refurbishment program on this magnificent Ferrari 365 GTB/4. The Ferrari has been subject to a full Ferrari repaint, Ferrari interior re-trim and detailing to the engine bay. Our next project is on a Ferrari 275 GTS.

We are proud to have been involved with the restoration of this stunning Ferrari Dino 246 GT which won its class at the Ferrari Owners Club Concours on the 6th of July at Walton Hall.

The Ferrari 246 Dino we featured at the beginning of the year has now received a colour change and we are preparing the Ferrari Dino for this years Ferrari Concours at Walton Hall on the 6th of July.
