‘More power, bet­ter brakes and sus­pen­sion’

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Living With Classics - IAN TILL­MAN OX­FORD­SHIRE SEV­ENS ox­ford­shire­sev­ens.co.uk

Ian has run Ox­ford­shire Sev­ens for seven years, but has been around these cars for much longer. ‘Most Sev­ens are used very spar­ingly but quite a few are used in tri­alling, sprints or cir­cuit rac­ing,’ he says. ‘Some do re­ally se­ri­ous tri­alling with the VSCC in events such as the Ex­eter, Scot­tish and Welsh Tri­als. For a road car, the first up­grade is usu­ally to the brakes, then SU car­bu­ret­tors. For com­pe­ti­tion, the fo­cus is al­ways on more power, bet­ter brakes and im­proved sus­pen­sion.’
