Press Release (ePRNews.com) - BURTON ON TRENT, England - Sep 19, 2016 - The eagerly awaited 2017 Jaguar E-Type Performance catalogue from Denis Welch Motorsport has now been released. It’s been 7 years since the last edition and the 2017 version sees the addition of 28 extra pages and hundreds of new performance enhancing products for Jaguar E-Type 6 cylinder models, both road and competition.
Racing and high performance enthusiasts demand only the very best parts. The availability and suitability of original parts, which can be hard to obtain, can compromise performance and reliability when it matters most. Initially focusing on Austin Healey models, Denis Welch Motorsport have more recently been at the forefront of product development for Jaguar E-Type. Product development grew out of the realisation that component failures could be seen time and again. Just as with Austin Healey beforehand, new parts have been designed and manufactured to be
‘Better than Original’ but without damaging the cars irreplaceable heritage.
One such example of this quest for perfection has been the torsion bar reaction plate. A fresh approach was taken using CAD and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to produce this off the shelf kit which makes it straight forward to accurately adjust and achieve the desired ride height. The Reaction Plate is made from top quality steel and heat treated for extra strength. The end product is a greatly improved replacement over the original, with a new design which is considerably lighter and up to four times stronger than others currently on the market.
2016 is already proving to be a good year with the Denis Welch Motorsport built and prepared Low Drag E-Type of Julian Thomas driven to four race victories in the five race Jaguar Classic Challenge series. Much of the success can be attributed to the performance parts which have been fitted to the car.
Jeremy Welch, Managing Director of Denis Welch Motorsport said:
“Our new Jaguar E-Type Performance Catalogue is a significant step forward for us. Over the last few years we have increased our Jaguar experience and range of parts. We’ve been able to take a fresh approach to many of the traditional Jaguar performance ideas and we’ve developed a number of new products as a direct result of competition on track. Our success on track has helped to fuel demand for Jaguar parts”
Success on the track has also meant a significant increase in demand for workshop services. Jeremy also explains how busy the workshop is.
“As well as parts we’re increasingly building complete engines and other drivetrain components such as axles and gearboxes for trade and retail customers worldwide. Denis Welch Motorsport reputation for building these components is also growing with engines powering a number of high profile cars including the 2015 & 2016 Tour Auto winning car and the ex- Bruce McLaren semi-lightweight of Joaquin Folch-Rosinol, proof that even other preparation specialists see us as the Jaguar performance experts”.
Continued development and investment in the latest technology has enabled Denis Welch Motorsport to add some innovative new high-performance products to the range. These new products include:
Wide Angle and Straight Port CNC Machined Cylinder Heads
Increased investment in CAD software has allowed the Denis Welch CAD team to redraw the head in 3D as a solid model, producing all new technical drawings – including fully modelling and drawing the inlet and exhaust ports.
3.8 and 4.2 wide and angle and straight port heads available from £9950-00+VAT.
4.2 All Synchro Bell Housing
Made using Denis Welch Motorsport’s own pattern equipment these are cast in top quality Aluminium or Magnesium, both heat treated and superior to the original in terms of strength and accuracy of alignment.
Available with a variety of options for starter type and a choice to suit 4.2 ring gear as well as 3.8. These fit any 4.2 all synchro gearbox.
Competition Front and Rear Anti Roll Bars
Both front and rear ARB’s are made to DWM’s own design. The rear ARB’s mount to the original chassis and radius arm points and are the correct width to suit the wider LWE track. The rears link to the furthermost point out on the wishbone. Many sizes available to allow for tuning from track to track and both can be swapped in just a few minutes.
Rear anti roll bars are priced at £130-00 +VAT and fronts at £185-00 +VAT. Fitting kits and mounts are also available which come complete with rose joints, cones etc.
Stainless Steel Exhausts
Denis Welch Motorsport now offers a range of exhaust parts in high-grade T304 stainless steel. Stainless steel exhausts are ideal for the weight conscious as the components are typically lighter than the mild steel equivalent. They are also a popular fitment due to their, clean appearance and resistance to corrosion. All of the stainless silencers are re-stuffable and stuffing material kits are also available. Components include tubular manifolds, side exit silencer and 3 rear silencer options.
The 2017 Jaguar E-Type Performance Catalogue arrives as many competitors and enthusiasts will be starting to plan their winter upgrades and rebuilds, making it the perfect time to look at the performance products Denis Welch Motorsport now offer.
The new Jaguar catalogue runs to 72 pages with hundreds of images and illustrations. Customers who would like a copy of the new catalogue should contact +44 (0)1543 472244, e-mail: email@example.com or visit the website www.bighealey.co.uk. Catalogues are free with a charge for postage and packing.
