Manx Classic 2016

Sat 30th. - Lhergy Frissell Hillclimb (Weather: AM, Cool, damp. PM: Cool, dry):

Sue Derbyshire obviously enjoying the fruits of a new (well, rebuilt) engine in her Morgan Super Aero with her third fastest time of the day in the TW class. Only a few seconds behind her time was Tracey Cameron in the Hale Morgan. This short video shows Tracey followed by Sue followed by Nancy Thomas in a 1934 F type Morgan. Ewan Cameron's 1c class record still holds.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Special mention must go to Brent Downey who had the second fastest time of the day in the Cameron Engineering prepared Lotus Cortina missing out on the top spot by under one second!

Fri 29th. Creg Willey's Hillclimb (Weather: AM, Cool, damp. PM: Cool, dry):

Another good result for Sue Derbyshire in her Morgan Super Aero with her second fastest time of the day in the TW class. 

Ewan Cameron's 1c class record still holds.

Thur 28th. Govenor's Sprint (Weather: AM, Rain, cold. PM: Rain, cold):

A good result for Sue Derbyshire in her Morgan Super Aero with the new engine recently rebuilt by Cameron Engineering & Motorsport having fastest time of the day in the TW class. In the 1c class (pre 1941 cars 1101-1500cc unsupercharged or up to 1100cc supercharged) Ewan Cameron, although not entered this year, is still the record holder from last year with the Morgan Hale Racer.

10TH APRIL

The complete rebuild by Cameron Engineering & Racing of a 1930's Morgan is nearly finished. The result is stunning:

9th April

One of the services that we provide is the care and maintenance of customer's cars preparing them and delivering them for events such as The Goodwood Member's Meeting. We'd spent several months recommissioning this Lotus Ford Cortina, transported it to Goodwood and oversaw it through the scrutineering for our customer to thoroughly enjoy himself in the Whitmore Cup race. He didn't win but that wasn't the point. He took part and his car was safe and reliable. And he thoroughly enjoyed himself!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5th April

We're capable of machining any part for vintage cars of motorbikes. Today saw us making brake drums for a Jaguar SS100:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2ND April

One of the great 'mavericks' of our time was Bob Berry whose attempts at the world motorcycle speed record on Pendine sands never quite succeeded but who was a proud owner and rider of a Brough Superior with a JAP engine. Here's an extract from a film we've recently had digitally remastered (from a VHS tape).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1st April

No, this isn't an April Fool's joke. This 'car' (!) arrived on the back of a truck from Germany. Is it a Jag Moggie or a Moggie Jag? XK150 or Traveller? Our instructions are to recommission it as is. Watch this space! (PS It took us about 5 minutes to get the engine running once off the truck.)

Jag Mog? Mog Jag?

MAY 2015

Leaping Lena is running again. This historic JAP JTOR engine was built by Alan Bruce and fitted in a record breaking Brough Superior. He achieved 124.41 mph world record in 1932 with a sidecar fitted. Cameron Racing Engines has fully rebuilt it as Bruce first ran it except that it is no longer supercharged. We’re hoping to see it back in a Brough one day.
