Team MEV, consisting of ROAD TRACK RACE and Mills Extreme Vehicles have announced a ‘MEV’ build-fest for this year’s National Kit Car Motor Show at

Stoneleigh on May 6 & 7.

On Stand 68, HALL ONE, you’ll find a forlorn Mazda MX-5 donor car that each day (11am, 1pm and 3pm), will be stripped and transformed into a MEV Exocet, which is cool, but especially so given that it will take just EIGHT MINUTES!

The process will see the MX-5 body removed and fitting of the new MEV kit creating a radical modern sportscar with ease and speed. Of course, preparations will have taken place before the show to ensure a speedy conversion and the car will take another 100-hours or so to complete into a drivable vehicle but the main conversion will be a spectacle not to be missed.

It will be very enlightening to those who assume that a car build is beyond their ability, and this demo will encourage them to take a second look at all the cars at the show, I reckon,  once TEAM MEV have shown the ease of construction.

To add to the excitement the team will be working against the clock to try and beat their own best time. There will be a live commentary at every show by vehicle designer and director of MEV Ltd, Stuart Mills, who will explain the process as the boys (and girl!) frantically ‘spanner’ the transformation.

More from or ENDS.
