Am looking for a rolling road in Devon, ideally with experience of the K series & Emerald.

Anybody know of anywhere in this area?

Thanks in advance!

The Tipton Garage at Tipton St.John near Honiton has a rolling road and a very good reputation for engine tuning and rebuilding, etc. Not sure exactly what their speciality is, but certainly worth a call. They can get very busy, so do call them early on.

Speak to Richard, on 01404 812091.

Second recommendation for The Tipton Garage. Steve's the guy who run's the rolling road and really know's his onions when it comes to Webers etc. Take a look on my website here:

www.cate1.co.uk/rolling.html

for my little visit. He's also done 3 of my mate's Tigers including one running an Emerald ECU. You will however need to bring a laptop with the software on it to re-program the ECU (unless he's got his own by now).

As mentioned he's very busy so phone up a few weeks before you need anything doing.

Thanks for the reccomendations, I'll give the Tipton garage a call.

Corin, I'm near Barnstaple. I've used Bickington garage many times over the years, but am looking to try somewhere new, just to get a second opinion really.

FWIW If anyone in the south west is looking to meet up, there is a very informal car show in Braunton, on July 25. Just email me for details & directions Jools@westprop.demon.co.uk

NO,NO,NO!!!!! Please do anything but got there, Wouldn't let him tune a piano let alone something you rely on!!

There are no good tuners in the Plymouth area, the best around here is Roy Rowe of Treburley Garage in Launceston, used to set my Hillclimber up but Launceston's a bit of a way from you.

I have run a couple of garages in the Plymouth area and the amount of complaints Alan Jeffrey gets is unreal!

Ok, fair enough.. Did the S quite well a year or so ago, diagnosed and sorted a couple of minor problems and seemed to do a good job..

Gents,

Thanks for the info. Since the earlier posts I've booked in at Tipton. They come across as a good bunch & turns out they do a few of my competitors in local sprints.

They are very busy, which has to be a good sign! I'll let you know how I get on.

Is North Dorset too far?, 1 & half from Barnstaple, Sigma in Gillingham do these, they run a few race cars out of there, no number at hand but I'm sure a google will do.
