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.
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.
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.
As a once in a life time event, Ben Cartwright is running the London Marathon in aid of Matlock Mencap. He has been been pounding the Derbyshire lanes for over four months in training and recently completed a hilly run of some 25 miles, so Ben feels more than capable of achieving the task.
