The Car – Worth over £7,000
Watch Petrol Ped take the wheel and go from a Track day hero to a proper racing driver:
The car was built from a road car by Stock Hatch winner and Clio 182 Championship front runner Martin Ward and in his hands was always in the top ten and at times near the sharp end. Looking stunning in white, underneath the car is Blue as shown on the V5 which comes with the car (registration DX04 FHJ).
The engine is strong and keeps up with the pack. Cam belt was changed at the beginning of this year and more recently has had a new reconditioned gear box, alternator, ABS pump and power steering pump. There is lots of meat left on the brake pads running Carbon Lorane RC6 with the standard pattern Brembo disks. The seat and belts are good until 2022. It has a standard fuel tank and weighs 1,000kg without fuel or driver.
The car is fully 750 Motor Club Clio 182 Championship ready, cage is MSA compliant and can compete in other championships without modification. The car was raced during July in the Classic Sports Car Club Tin Tops Series, entering Class B. Given the car is virtually standard (as per the 750mc Championship rules), the field was full of lighter and more powerful cars. The car qualified P18/33 overall and P3/7 in class. During the race the quickest lap time was a 57.4 and due to some poor pit stop decisions by the driver (me), finished P15/24 and P3/4 in class. The pace in the car was good for P10 overall and P2 in class. The last time the 750mc Championship raced at Brands Hatch, the pace would have put the car inside the top 10.
Other series and championships the car is eligible for include the Track Attack Tricolore series, 750mc Road Sports, Club Enduro & Hot Hatch, MSVR Trackday Trophy & Championship and many more.
The car comes as shown ready to race with a new set of fresh rubber and some fuel. The car is not “as new” or even that expected of a reasonable road car. It has some scrapes and knocks which is consistent with the normal rough and tumble of a tin top race car. There is paint which doesn’t quite colour match, some vinyl covering up some scrapes and chips and marks consistent with rubbing. The car is presentable and will pass muster with any scrutineer or club steward.
Car located at www.jjperformance.co.uk and can be viewed at Fleet Marston, just north west of Aylesbury. Phone John or Paddy on 01296 655255 for viewing.

Little Hearts Matter are a national UK charity offering help to anyone affected by the diagnosis of single ventricle heart condition. From initial antenatal diagnosis, through treatments and into life at home, the charity works with children, young adults and families to reduce the isolation, fear and lack of understanding created when a child is diagnosed as having half a working heart.
Little Hearts Matter wraps a blanket of understanding and care around families at every rollercoaster stage of their half a heart journey. The charity team offer a mixture of personal support and easily understood information to help reduce families’ stress and improve their understanding. They also link young members, parents, grandparents and families. There is really nothing better than being able to reach out to other families walking the same path as another, especially when that journey is stressful and strewn with life changing challenges.
They are the only charity in the UK offering this highly specialised help and their assistance is needed more now than ever. This year, and every year, as many as 600 families in the UK will learn that their child has only half a working heart. Little Hearts Matter provides up to date, expert, medical and lifestyle information that is well supported and respected by a national medical network. Referrals into the charity’s services come from many clinicians, at all stages of a family’s journey often starting at the time of their initial diagnosis.
Little Hearts Matters is a registered Charity No. 1123290 and more information can be found at: https://www.lhm.org.uk/
