FACTORY FIVE IN UK WITH TECH-AUTOS

Factory Five Racing is almost definitely the largest kitcar manufacturer in the world in volume terms and although a variety of people have personally imported their kit packages here over the years the Massachusetts-based company has never really had an official agent in the UK who have imported their complete range – until now.

Dan Walsh of Tech-Autos of Frome, Somerset has been restoring and modifying a variety of cars for several years and he recently did a deal to represent Factory Five here. He’ll be bringing in most of the range including Roadster, Subaru Impreza-based 818S and Type 65.

SOME IDEAS ARE GOOD; SOME ARE JUST BRILLIANT!

Here’s a great new venture that we think will be of great interest to totalkitcar/TKC Mag readers. It’s called The Machine Shop and is located in Hinckley, Leicestershire.

Basically, if you are struggling for workshop space or don’t have a covered area in which to work, or you have the skills to do a specific job but don’t have the equipment, join up at The Machine Shop and use their space and their tools and machinery. How often have you been left on a Sunday afternoon wishing for access to a TIG welder or a metal guillotine, for example?
