Hi everyone,

Some time ago I openly and honestly told all who read P'heads about the fact that we were having a problem with an investor which was causing us some trouble.

Unfortunately a combination of this problem and a less than helpful banking community in the current economic climate mean we have not been able to resolve the issue and as such Adrenaline Motorsport Ltd has been placed into the hands of an insolvency specialist.

I can not begin to describe how heartbroken Tom, Dan and I are at the way the situation has developed but despite trying absolutely everything under the sun it has not been possible to find a viable solution for the Adrenaline Motorsport trading company.

HOWEVER due to the way in which the business was structured the Murtaya project exists as a separate entity and remains fully available through the established UK and International distribution network. Anyone interested in the Murtaya should simply look up their local agent/dealer and contact them direct (http://www.adrenalinemotorsport.co.uk/ams-cars/murtaya/murtaya-distributors).

The network can supply Murtaya in kit form or can work individually with customers on specifying a fully built car which will be constructed by the agent in question.

This support network obviously also goes for all those who have already purchased a Murtaya as knowledge, parts supply and ongoing support also remain fully available through the same dealer network.

This is possible as we were already gearing up to move into a situation in 2010 where the car was only available through the network rather than direct from Adrenaline so all of the pieces were already in place for this change.

As a result of these developments two customer cars which were being factory built at Adrenaline have been subcontracted out to be completed - one at Arden Automotive in Didcot (a Murtaya agent) and one by an ex-Adrenaline technician here in Cornwall. In addition we are personally working with two other customers on the fulfilment of their Murtaya orders in the New Year.

I am all too aware of the rumour mill and the way that incorrect information spreads so rapidly through the internet so to prevent the inevitable Chinese whispers could I request that any and all questions you may all have are directed to me through the following e-mail address;-

enquiries@adrenalinemotorsport.co.uk

Everyone who sends anything through will get a personal reply - although I would ask that you allow up to 48/72 hours or so to get one as I am responding to, and dealing with all of the current issues by myself which means I do have quite a workload right now - hence the email request as I do not have time at present to be on P'Heads as often as usual (like everyone I normally have a click around while having a cup of tea!).

I would like to thank all of our suppliers who have worked hard with us through this period to ensure that our agents and distributors are able to continue offering the Murtaya direct to customers - and for all of the support that the P'Heads community has shown me personally over the last few years. Many members on here have become friends in the real world, some customers, and some both!

The Murtaya is a terrific car of which I am very proud and I look forward to watching it continue being a success through the agent network in the coming years.

I hope that everyone enjoys a fantastic Christmas and New Year.

Kind regards,

Neil.

Really sorry to hear that Neil. As you know I'm a big fan of the car (and the people) and look forward to seeing both resurface.

You know we (Arden Automotive in Didcot) have been and will continue to offer support to you and all Murtaya customers.

Adrenaline may be dead but The Murtaya will live on......

Good luck for the future, I know we're all going to benifit from the new structure.

I thought the car was a hit when i saw and so very nearly bought one 2 years (3?)ago.

You must have worked so bloody hard and gauling I'm sure to face this.

Having spoken to you at length then, I am equally sure you have the 'wherewithall' to jump up and get moving forward again in short time.

Great car that is a result of pure conviction and sound heart.

I wish you all the best for a brighter 2010.

Neil,

Gutted by this news Think the car is fantastic and would have bought one had the wife not put her foot down with a firm hand and insisted the kit had to have 4 seats.

I will continue to save towards my murtaya as I have been told I can build one when the girls are big enough to be left.

Knowing you and your can do positive attitude you will come back from this. Always enjoyed talking to you at the shows and wish you all the best and hope to see you again soon

I am so very sorry to read that Neil, you guy's are so dedicated to your product that I have no doubt you will and probably have found a way to return to norm. Well as normal as this game gets that is.
I genuinly whole heartedly support all new designs, the Toniq and Murtaya are brilliant examples of showing how the scene can move forward and run along side the dominant replica market. I wish you all the very best and will NO DOUBT see you at the shows next year. Regards Stuart

Hi Neil
I' very sorry to read about your project being halted due to problems with the current economic climate and other.....

I really hope that this condition is only temporary and that you will be able to restart again this, or any other project in the near future.

I wish you guys all the best and will be looking forward to seeing you next year at a kitcar show.

Im not an expert and I understand your pain completely (as I lost £5k on a kit that I couldnt build and later scrapped (nothing to do with Adrenalin, Murtaya or Neil))... however if the company is in administration I suspect Neil wont be legally allowed to reply especially as its so public that you are asking questions.

Im not trying to defend anyone, just explain that your probably not just being ignored.

Neil,
As you know my support has and will be there, it is such a shame when something so obviously excellent as this has such a painful birth.
However the Murtaya IS out there and fortunately there are quite a few places that can be gone to for a build and advise as you said.
This is not the end of the Murtaya just a crappy bit at the start that needs getting past.

OK having re-read the opening post I see that he has promised to reply to emails personally, so ignore me.
