Catching up with the backlog of features that I couldn’t do at various times over the last ten months and I’ve been out and about this week.

First off, I was at CCK in High Hurstwood on Monday morning to watch as Hawk Cars’ beautiful aluminium-bodied Cobra Daytona replica was put through its paces. There’s been plenty of East Sussex’s finest input in this car’s build.

The paint has been applied by the artisans as Kingswell Coachworks, the engine and suspension set up carried out by AJ Barnard Engineering of Bodiam, while Shaun Rainford’s rolling road was used to set up the car’s Ford 302 V8.

The CCK rollers are good for up to 1000bhp and although the Hawk never got near troubling those limits it did give a reading of 340bhp, which seemed to please everyone present on Monday.

We’ll be bringing you more details on the ‘Hawk at CCK’ morning in a future issue of TKC MAG.
