Description du produit

Revue de presse

Track & Race Cars magazine, October 2008
UK magazine


This book is aimed primarily at hill-climb and sprint car and helps to build one from a budget. It begins with choosing the right engine and works through to design and construction. There is an extensive amount of pictures and diagrams, which does help as there is a lot to read and it breaks up the text well. It describes the subjects that will affect this kind of build in good detail and would be very helpful for people looking into this area.

British Racing News, December 2008
The magazine of the British Racing & Sports Car Club

Astoundingly comprehensive, well-written – with nicely inserted humor – it might be a soft-back, but this book is well worth 25 smackers. Even if the last thing you want to do is build a ’bike-engined racer. If you thought the process was just welding a few tubes together and slotting a breaker’s yard ’bike screamer and ’box in there, then think again – it is nothing of the sort. It is a major project, likely to daunt many, demanding determination to succeed and the most fastidious attention to detail. Pashley has those qualities, as proven in the past 20 years spent designing and building three ’bike-engined hill-climbers from scratch, at the time immersing himself in others’ similar projects. And the complete, honest way he approached that is evidently how he approached writing this book: it shines from every page. Mrs Pashley, the book’s unpaid proof reader, has done a great job. She also ‘gets’ hubby’s subtle humor. Under ‘C’ in the alphabetic glossary of suspension, steering and chassis terms, we find; ‘‘C’ word, compromise. A device for by-passing impasses met frequently during the design and construction processes, normally determined whilst [sic] engrossed on unconnected activities such as sleeping or drinking.’ The reviewer is a qualified mechanical engineer with decades of motor sport engineering under his belt: I learned more from this book. In a way it is a worthy, more modern, yet more specific, companion to Terrapin guru Allan Staniforth’s obligatory 'Race and Rally Car Sourcebook'; to which Pashey makes deferential reference within his pages. Informative and educational – and fun to read. Who cares if it’s a $50.00 paperback? Read it; you won’t be disappointed.

Speedscene, July 2008
The magazine of the Hillclimb and Sprint association

As anyone who read his long-running series of articles in 'Race Tech' magazine will know, Marengo constructor Tony Pashley is as adept at conveying the technicalities of race car construction to the reader as he is at actually building the cars themselves. With the modern motorcycle engine now the power unit of choice for the majority of cars in the smaller – and some in the larger – capacity classes in hillclimbing, it’s perhaps surprising that the modification and installation of bike engines for use in competition cars has rarely been covered in detail in any publication. So it’s good that Veloce have entrusted to Tony the first book to be devoted entirely to the building of these cars. This is an essentially practical guide, covering all the basics of race car design and construction (of both tubular and honeycomb chassis) based on experience gained with Tony’s three highly successful Marengo chassis. In any design process, other people’s ideas provide not only inspiration but a valuable guide, and a useful feature of the book includes multiple examples of suspension construction, engine installations, damper layouts, exhaust and cooling systems and many more essential items laid out on one or more pages for instant comparison. Materials and hardware selection form another important part in the process and the author guides us through these and indeed all the myriad of other basic engineering techniques involved. An engineer is, he reminds us, someone who washes his hands before going to the toilet! – an old saying perhaps, but just one example of Pashley’s immensely readable style that provides an easy grasp of a complex subject. This, together with literally hundreds of diagrams and full colour illustrations, make this book an absolute ‘must read’ for anyone contemplating such a project.

Présentation de l'éditeur

If you are aspiring to build a racing car this could be the book that you've been waiting for! Tony Pashley revisits the path that he took in the Pashley Project articles in Race Tech magazine during the design and construction of two successful hillclimb cars. This time in great detail with a view to enabling the reader to carryout a similar exercise for themselves. Although hillclimb and sprint cars are the focal topic, a lot of the book is applicable to race cars in general. The cars under discussion in the book are powered by motor cycle engines which, in the smaller racing car classes are meeting with great success. The total process of building a car is described beginning with the selection and procurement of the engine. Chassis and suspension design is covered in a simplistic but adequate manner as the author's aim is to minimise the inclusion of involved calculations. Two recipes for chassis construction are illustrated in detail along with guidance on the processes of construction and a description of the required equipment. Following on from this the fabrication of the suspension is explained. Further chapters are dedicated to the remaining aspects of the vehicle covering; transmission, brakes, fuel and coolant systems and electrics. The book is heavily illustrated with 200 photographs and extensive explanatory diagrams and tables. This book is a vital addition to any would be kit car builders library.
