news_vmax_2Hartlepool-based Saturn Sports Cars was one of the first companies to supply panels and parts for the Haynes Roadster model. Their modest star flickered brightly for a short while before they ceased trading.

The project moved next door (literally!) to NTS for five minutes before heading south, passing to another Haynes Roadster specialist, Gilham Engineering although they keep a very low profile. Therefore it was with interest that I heard this week that it has returned home to the North East, now under the control of Stockton-on-Tees-based VMax Composites, run by Dave Williams.

Here's VMAX's new demo vehicle

Here’s a cool Roadster built and owned by Kevin Pooley of the Haynes Roadster forum

With a background in composites Dave has got stuck into restoring the original moulds, which needed a bit of TLC, but can now start offering Saturn panels once more.

More on this one soon. In the meantime visit Dave’s Facebook page via ENDS.
