MOTORSPORT ENGINEERING & RESTORATION SERVICES
Experts in Classic Car Restoration
Engineering-led Race Car Solutions
From our dedicated facility in rural Hampshire, within easy reach of several UK circuits, airports and channel ports, WDK Motorsports offers professional motorsport engineering solutions. One of our key services is classic car restoration and we cover many types of cars. For example, we can restore Single-Seater, Sports Prototype, Grand Touring and Touring car racers. WDK’s ethos of ‘Winning Together’ drives us and motivates everyone on the team to achieve.
In-house chassis repairs, restoration & preparation
Our staff of time-served engineers, fabricators and mechanics provides a comprehensive range of services. Chassis repair (monocoque and tubeframe), restoration and preparation are handled ‘in-house.’ We specialise in bespoke fabrication, using TIG, MIG and gas welding of steel and aluminium. From a bracket to a chassis, we can make it. Replicating wings to original patterns is another widely sought-after speciality.
Bespoke chassis fabrication
WDK has fabricated many replacement roll hoops (ROPS) to FIA standards, using CDS (cold drawn seamless carbon steel) tubing from stock. Investment in staff training enables us to self-certificate the requisite crack testing of steel components. Testing of aluminium and magnesium parts is currently outsourced to aerospace-certified specialists.
We have also forged excellent relationships with top pro race driving coaches/mentors whose work, complementary to ours, is clearly reflected in results.
We offer gearbox overhauls by F1-trained staff and our own blasting equipment and chromating tanks ensure a top finish on casings to match the rest of your car. WDK is one of the UK’s largest stockists of gear ratios and dog rings, a comprehensive selection of which are always taken to events.
Many of our discerning internationally-based clients have collections of vehicles. Our secure on-site storage facilities enable them to corral cars at WDK for both discretion and flexibility of programmes. Engine turns are carried out on a regular basis for cars in long-term storage or awaiting work.
Engine rebuilds, bodywork and paintwork
Engine rebuilds, bodywork and paint are sub-contracted to top specialists, to customers’ choice. We have also forged excellent relationships with top pro race driving coaches/mentors whose work, complementary to ours, is clearly reflected in results.
