Its been an incredibly busy year for ACR so far, now having settled down into our new factory, we have taken on more staff, including two apprentices.
ACR’s competition and racing department has seen excellent results from its work, with great news from the MSA British Cross Country championship, where Mike Moran has provisionally retained his crown for a second season with an event to spare, Well done Bumpy Mike!
With the last BCCC race yet run at Walters Arena, we expect to see good racing for runner up and class positions, and watching closely how two BCCC event winner, Ben Duckworth with his ACR / Pectel SQ6 Milner performs, along with Mark Jacques with his ACR 4.8 V8 powered challenger, Britpart’s Paul Myers with ACR V8 Tornado, Steve Smith with his V8 Clio and Richard Green with his V8 Tomcat, all fighting for top positions.
In the Dunlop TVR Challenge, Dave Stuart is looking forward to the last race of the year at Oulton Park, Where he hopes for a strong class B result.
The workshop has not neglected its strong interest in the Classic Land Rovers of the 50’s through to more recent Defender models, along with Range Rover Classic and P38 models of course covered with standard and performance improved engines. The ACR 4.8 Hi Torque V8 continues to be the popular upgrade choice for these models.
Series Land Rover owners will be interested to learn that we are testing a new capacity increase for 2.25 3 and 5 main bearing engines! as part of a number of new developments in progress. This will increase capacity from 2.25 to 2.5 litres, and features a brand new piston design. More torque and power, standard servicing and an up to date piston with modern materials and technology means more durability, less friction, better ring sealing and wear characteristics all mean long term benefit, all at little extra cost. This complements our long running and successful 2.8 upgrade for the 5 main bearing engine.
