A one minute rev off involving over 200 cars was the highlight of the day at the opening of a motor racing team’s workshop.

Topcats Racing Ltd, based at Westcott Venture Park, held a fun day of events which included a one minute rev off for all the cars that wished to take part.

There was an estimated 80,000 bhp of engine revs during the minute.

Over 300 cars including members of the Marcos, V8 UK and Fiat 500 car clubs took part in the celebrations at the home of the sportscar and endurance racing team.

The day also featured the unveiling of Topcat Racing’s TVR Sagaris LS9 which demonstrated a variety of burnouts and doughnuts.

The new building includes space for six vehicle ramps, car storage, an MOT station, machining and preparation rooms and a cafe area and members club suite.

Over 500 people attended the launch event which co-director and co-owner Charlotte Gilbert described as ‘a great success.’

She said: “It was a fantastic day and we had far more people than we expected.

“One person even told me there were queues on the A41 towards Westcott because so many people were trying to get in at the same time!”

Topcats Racing Ltd compete in sportscar races across Europe and are taking part in the Silverstone Classic, a race for classic cars, to be held at the circuit later this month.
