FEBRUARY 2015 - ROAD GOING VERSIONS OF MILNER LRM-1 ANNOUNCED.
It's offical - we are going to release a tarmac version of our LRM-1 race car.
Stay tuned - more details to follow soon!
JANUARY 2015 WORLD SPEED ATTEMPT - 675BHP /540lb ft torque.
This went to Bonneville 2014 for an attempt on the speed record in the class of Blown Fuel Modified Sport (BMFS) but unfortunately got rained out, however we will try again in August 2015.
It has been built by David Chapman (employee) & Sir S.Walker / Fabricated by Milner Off Road Racing and features a tubular spaceframe chassis and a supercharged Ford Coyote V8 engine - the same as we fit into our R5 and LRM-1 race cars.
Below is an article which featured in the MG Owners Club magazine, January 2015 and makes interesting reading.
Our debut at The Goodwood Festival Of Speed was most successful. Our stand drew lots of positive attention and the R5 that we brought down with us did exceptionally well on the Rally Stages, mixing it with 'rallying Royalty' from the Rothmans Mk2 Escort, Porsche 911 and Lancia Stratos to Group B monsters like the Ford RS200, MG Metro 6R4, Opel Manta 400 and Lancia 037 right up to modern era rally classics from Toyota, Mitsubishi, Subaru and WRC cars.
We even made the front page of the Goodwood
Festival Of Speed website!
Check out this video of the different cars coming down to the hairpin bend at Goodwoods Rally Stage. We are at 5:50. Although the conditions were very slippery, the spin is entirely theatrical of course - putting on a show for the spectators :-) The R5 is being driven by Richard Kershaw, 6x British Champion.
"Thank You" to Tom Greggors for not only taking the video in the first place but also for kindly allowing us to use it here.
