I was talking to Scamp Motor Company boss, Andrew MacLean this week and was pleased to hear that business in Scamp-land is very good at present with a book full of orders that are keeping Andrew busy.

The car pictured here is called Thunderchild 2 and has been built for a chap called Mark Nicholson to replace his aging championship-winning Autotest Scamp Mk2.

Andrew’s new design from Mark’s brief instructions. … nothing hanging out the back, adjustable height rear suspension for fully-forward mounted coil-overs, which are the same shape as the old Scamp Mk2 and lighter.

So here he is… Thunderchild 2 super lightweight chassis frame in MIG-welded stainless steel, beefed-up suspension mountings, electric power steering mounting, stainless steel fittings throughout. Totally Mini-based with full-race-spec 1380cc A-Series engine, unique two-speed gearbox with Quaife diff and brushed stainless steel frame with polished alloy panels.

Other Scamp models available are Mk1, Mk2, Mk3, GT3, Mk4x4, RTV and the little Rowfant roadster.
