Vintage racing is a sport built on passion, history, and competition.
Michael's Vintage Racing is a family-run race shop which has served the vintage racing community for over 20 years. We built our business on a passion for keeping vintage race cars out of barns and garages, and on the track where they belong. We study and celebrate the history of every car in our shop and in the sport. Most of all, we use our success on track to feed our own competitive spirit and help our customers reach their racing goals.
Thanks to a number of full restorations on Elva Couriers and Mk1b, MkIV, and MkVII sports racers we've become known as the "Elva guys" in the vintage racing world, but that hasn't stopped us from supporting competitive Turners, Alfa Romeos, Lolas, Lotuses, Brabhams, Datsuns, MGs, and most notably some of the fastest Ginetta G4s in the country. Whatever you may be interested in racing, we've most likely got some experience!
Our dedication to quality work and customer care has made us one of the most respected shops in vintage racing. If you share our passion, get in touch and let us help you fuel it.
