Race Engine Technology, September 2008 UK magazine and website Back in 1995 I had reason to devise a series of magazine articles for another publication about how to build your own racing car, writes Ian Bamsey. I figured the best way to do that would be to follow a project from conception to track and I asked around to find a budding amateur builder of proven competency. To my surprise, it didn't take me long to track down a suitable candidate. I first met Tony Pashley at Gurston Down in South West England. Gurston Down is a snaking asphalt farm track, unusually for a UK hillclimb course dipping downhill before climbing up again. Tony was based not so far away at Bridgewater in Somerset, handy for where I was based and when I met him was campaigning his first self-built racing car, which he called the Marengo. It was a 600cc motorcycle-engined single seater and it turned in a very respectable performance on the Gurston Down asphalt that day. I learned that it had gone well on a number of UK hillclimb courses and, happily for me, that Tony was already itching to make a second car, based on what he had so far learned. So it was that the 'Pashley Project' was born. I recall not long afterwards, visiting a magazine trade exhibition in London. The very first stand I went to was one offering specialist magazine packaging services and the person I spoke to ask the name of the magazine I was publishing. I replied that he wouldn't have heard of it since it was a specialist motorsport technical title but when pressed for the name, he replied: 'Yes, I know it - I am planning on making a car just like that Pashley Project for the road!' The Pashley Project kept on running and runningfor as soon as he had finished his second car, Tony wanted to make a third (this time monocoque rather than spaceframe). It had quickly become apparent that Tony was not only extremely competent at building racing cars from a home garage, he was also brilliant at writing the installment articles himself, plus he could do the photos, too. In fact, prepared to let the rest of the world learn by his mistakes as well as his successes and an excellent communicator, Tony was in the ideal position to write a book entitled 'How to Build Motorcycle-engined Racing Cars'. Now he has done just that. Part of the Veloce Publishing 'Speedpro' series, 'How to Build Motorcycle-engined Racing Cars' delivers just what it says on the cover by way of very sound, hard-worn practical advice. I am glad Tony joined forces with Veloce Publishing since it is run by Rod Grainger, who back in the eighties, working for the Haynes Publishing Group was my publisher for a number of technical motorsport books. Those books that I wrote back in the eighties then culminated in the 'International Race Engine Directory', published by Haynes in 1989. That book was the precursor of Racer Engineering and, in effect a dozen years on of this publication, 'International Race Engine Directory' is long out of print but since 2003 has lived on through 'Race Engine Technology'. From the point of view of 'Race Engine Technology', it is worth noting that Tony's book covers selection and preparation of the engine and transmission as well as design and development of the chassis. Moreover, since I met Tony at Gurston Down in the summer of 1995 there has been an increasing movement towards the use of motorcycle engines in all manner ofsmall displacement racing cars and some road cars, too. The motorcycle engine/gearbox package is hard to beat in terms of weight and size for a given level of performance. All those involved in race engine design and development would do well to familiarize themselves with its potential through this excellent book, which is absolutely crammed full of knowledgeable A detailed study of the medium sized touring cars in the extensive range built by Bugatti during the fifteen years following the 1914-18 war. Aspects of design and development are considered together with pictures of components and chassis commencing with the Type 28 culminating with the Type 49. These cars represented the bulk of production and typify the Bugatti style and design, which was the basis of the company's unique standing in the field of automobile engineering. Over one hundred and fifty different cars are depicted via over 200 principally contemporary photographs, many of which have not been published before. The works of many different coachbuilders, throughout Europe, built upon these chassis are illustrated together with tables showing their market position compared with other makes and models, which were competitors. A study of the performance of these cars in competition is included together with a survey of the fall and rise in values over eight decades. The book represents an important addition to the series already produced by Veloce covering models Type 40, Types 46/50 and Types 57/57S. The royalties pass to the Bugatti Trust, a foundation dedicated to the study of the works of Ettore Bugatti and the furtherance of aesthetics in engineering design.
