  • Sneak Peek - Our Latest Project - Fast Road New RS Escort

     

    So here we have a brand new manufactured Escort Mk2 bodyshell bolted down on to a special jig to ensure that the shell is all straight and true to original Ford specification. This shell will have Group-1 modifications done including alloy tarmac arches for 8x13" wheels that we plan to use.

    The initial plan is to insert a 2.0 Duratec engine on throttle bodies with a type-9 gearbox and probably an English axle with tramp bars and panhard rod. It will have a basic bolt in 6 point cage and the usual bodyshell mods including large gearbox tunnel, bulk head and strut top plates, gussets, tank stand etc. More details soon...

  • NLC121P - The Millington Escort

    Its been a while since we have posted any updates on the Millington Escort on here so lets see if we can get some news developments for you...

  • VEC100V - The original Motorsport Tools Escort Mk2

    Originally built as a Group4 tarmac rally car back in 2004, competing on a wide range of event through Wales and the north west, mostly single venue tarmac rallies and later some closed road events in Ireland including the famous Carlow Mk2 challenge and West Cork in 2007. We then moved on to various forest events in Wales such as the Cambran rally, mid wales stages, Sweet Lamb etc.

    Having been in storage for the last 5 years due to business commitments and other projects, we think its time to bring the VEC out again for some action. Will be doing a full service over the next few weeks including new upgrades, new seats, extinguishers , harnesses and a general freshen up.

  • Motorsport-Tools Sponsors the Opel Adam R2 Once Again

     

    If you're heading out to watch any of the Vauxhall Adam R2's racing over the next year, keep an eye out for some familiar products. This is the second successive year that we've offered our support to the team, and to be fair, the results have been really favorable. Recently, they had the above car on show down the road from us during the Dayinsure Wales Rally GB and it was drawing a lot of attention.

    This year around, we've provided the team with a lot more than we have in previous years. As you can see above, there's a full set of our Motamec GP1 FIA approved seats, as well as our Motamec 6-Point FIA approved racing harnesses.

    As well as the seat and harnesses that we've provided for the team, we've also given them one of our steering wheels to complete the look of the internals. One of our black, deep dish steering wheels if you're curious...

    Away from the business end of the car, we've also supplied a load of the sundries that make the car. As above, we've supplied the team with a Motamec Racing Helmet Hammock.

    And also one of the Motamec Light Weight Wheel Braces.

    We didn't just help kit out the interior of the car. You'll also see some of our products on the exterior. Such as the Motamec Tow Straps on the front and rear.

    And also we gave the team a set of our Motamec Scrutineer Safety Decal Stickers. A small but necessary touch on the outside of the car.

     

    So there we go. If you happen to get chance to see any of these cars running over the next year, keep an eye out for our products

  • Latest Flight Cases Now In Stock

    Looking for a more professional way to move your tools around, we've got the answer for you here.

    We now stock a variety of tool flight cases, with multiple options on how to kit them out. You can get just a simple case for loading your tools into, all the way up to a rally spec kit, coming complete with tools.

     

    FLIGHT_CASE

    Above is the Motamec Service Flight Case MTB-200. It comes complete with the foam lining seen above if you want it, as well as a kit needed to make your own cutaways for your tools.

    External dimensions for these are 550mm x 400mm x 160mm (520mm x 370mm x 150mm internally).

    FLIGHT_CASE_CUTOUT

    As for colours of the case, you have the choice of either blue, green, red, or black. You also have five choices for the foam insert; grey, red, orange, green, or blue.


    The next setup will be more suited to you if you have a lot more tools to carry around.

    LINED_FLIGHT_CASE

    This is the Motamec Service Flight Case MTB-100. It's slightly smaller than the MTB-200 (external dimensions 490mm x 350mm x 195mm) but comes with two liners. Each liner has 24 elasticated grips on it to reduce the risk of your tools moving around and both of the liners sit comfortably into the top cover of the case, doubling the storage on the top and leaving you with the bottom half to fill with whatever you need.

    If you don't want to leave the bottom half of the case unorganized, then there is the option of getting the case with an additional, bespoke alloy tray.

    FLIGHT_CASE_TRAY

    As with the MTB-200 listed at the top of the post, this one also comes with the option of four different colours, blue, black, red, and green.


    If you're just getting started and need a good set of tools, or just need something to take on the road with you instead of your usual set, we've got an option for you too.

    SPEC_CASE

    SPEC_CASE_2

    This is the Motamec Motorsport Tool Kit. It's got the same dimensions as the MTB-200 case listed at the top, but comes with everything you see in it, and also comes in the same four colour options as the other two cases listed here, and the choice of either black and red, or gray and red foam insert. The full tool kit includes;

    Motamec 18v Cordless Impact Wrench - Lithium-Ion - 430 ft/lb / 588Nm Torque
    Spare Motamec 18v Battery - Lithium-Ion

They all also have a 5mm thick stainless steel name plaque, come fully padded to prevent damage to your tools, and are all lockable.
