RALLY PREPARATION SERVICES
There are very few vehicle workshops with the knowledge, skills, professionalism and commitment to prepare classic and vintage cars for rallies and endurance events to the standard required to succeed. At RPS that’s what we do, along with managing and supporting teams during all sorts of events. Although we specialise particularly in older vehicles, we also have considerable experience in preparing modern cars for endurance events.
2013 Peking to Paris Rally winners prepared by RPS
We work with amateur and professional motorsport competitors at the highest level, and are renowned for our unique expertise in both the classic and vintage car market. For the 2013 Peking to Paris Rally we both supplied and prepared the Vintage Category-winning 1937 Chevrolet Fangio Coupé of Phil Garratt and Kieron Brown. An RPS-prepared car led the vintage category for every day of that event – over a total of 33 days and 12,500km! Clients are already talking to us about preparing their cars for many long-distance events in the future, along with the Mille Miglia and the Monte Carlo Historique, and of course the next Peking to Paris Rally, which promises to be the greatest motoring adventure yet.
Our services are highly sought after because as well as having unique technical skills, we have competed successfully in many rallies and endurance events ourselves, so we know what can go wrong! Our expertise lies in preparing cars in a way that reduces the potential for anything going wrong. And in support situations, we are geared up and fully equipped to rapidly resolve the unexpected problems that sometimes occur, despite the most painstaking preparation by anybody.
We are present on most major events all over the world – anywhere from the extreme heat in the deserts of Mongolia or Africa to the snow and ice at the top of the Col de Turini on the Monte Carlo Rally!
If you’re as bewitched as we are by the magic of classic and vintage cars, and you want your vehicle prepared thoroughly enough to let you confidently compete and enjoy local or international events, let’s have a chat about your ambitions and how we can help you to achieve them. Contact us
