  • Broken Valve in Thor Racecar

    A quick update, we had an engine noise after qualy @ Castle Combe, a couple of weeks ago. The Motor was taken out and dropped at Peter Knight's and stripped. A valve spring had broken, the
    valve has been hitting that piston, eventually bending the rod and
    crushing the Big End Bearing causing the sound. Luckily Crank is OK,
    so just springs, rod and custom made piston, but do not arrive till
    next week, so I will be missing the next Thunder Saloon races @ Thuxton
    on the 17th August. So. next races in Thor in the Thunder Saloons @
    Cadwell on the 8th/9th September. I am racing my other car, The
    Bullet, before then @ Mallory on the 26th/27th Aug Bank Holiday in the
    Special/Thunder Saloon/Sport Revival Races. Some footage from my
    recent outings:
