About Hawker Racing

Hawker Racing is the sister company to Hawker Restorations, world leaders in the restoration of the Hawker Hurricane and other WWI and WWII aircraft. At Hawker Racing we apply the same exceptionally high level of engineering skill and experience to the restoration and preparation of historic sports and racing cars, many of which compete in the world’s most prestigious events. For us, ‘aircraft quality’ is not merely a marketing catchphrase, but a daily reality.


Many of our engineers are qualified toolmakers and in some cases have been with us for more than 20 years, working on both cars and aircraft. Their skills include traditional engineering, electrical systems, instrumentation, sheet metalwork and fabrication. In addition to a large general workshop (c165 m²) our facilities include a CNC machine shop (c77 m²)., an engine shop with dedicated flow bench and a dyno room.

Whether you leave a car with us or deliver an engine alone, we can restore, rebuild, refurbish and tune it to perfection for road or track. Current projects include the refurbishment of four Bristol engines and the construction of a limited series of Jaguar C-Type Coupes. You will find more examples of our past and present work on the ‘Our Work’ pages – click here.

Quote  …….“It’s unwise to pay too much, but it’s worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money – that’s all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot – it can’t be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.”― John Ruskin
