Mussett Technology Group and Geoff Page Racing had a large stand at Autosport International last week where they launched two new engines they’ve co-developed.

Among their display was a particularly fine Cosworth YB and a fiendishly clever bike-derived unit called the MR-1500T, a four-cylinder turbo with aluminium crankcase based around a Suzuki Hayabusa cylinder head with Mussett’s own cast block and composite rocker covers and manifold and the turbocharged 1500cc unit produces 500bhp at 1.7-bar. What’s more the engine can be bolted directly to the vehicle’s bulkhead, thus aiding possible packaging problems.

The Norfolk-based operation has a huge array of talents on-tap with over 50 state-of-the-art CNC machines within their modern 52,000 sq/ft factory employing 120 staff.

They also have a separate composite division housed in a 10,000 sq/ft unit and from I saw on their engines their quality of lamination is first class.

Geoff Page Racing, meanwhile, need no introduction, as Geoff was an ex-Ford and Janspeed-man also working within the Formula One environment for a time and he currently maintains a large selection of historic F1 cars among his other activities that include looking after Duncan Cowper’s superb DAX Rush Hayabusa turbo.

The Mussett Group is involved in top-line aerospace, marine, oil and automotive projects.
