Rolling Road Tuning
Our Superflow AD30 2 wheel drive chassis dyno has a 1200 bhp and 225 mph capacity. The knurled rollers give excellent traction with no tyre slip and the high inertia of the roller assembly allows us to accurately recreate all driving conditions. As well as optimising power and torque at full throttle we also focus on driveability and part throttle performance. This ensures your race car is as easy to drive as your road car and your road car is as responsive as your race car.
We have chosen market leading partners to supply our remapping services, Revo Technik and Superchips UK based companies with their own R&D facilities including rolling roads and all offer full technical back up. With a remap from Northampton Motorsport your car will feel sharper and more responsive.
We have the latest Hunter HD alignment system that lets us measure and visualise the complete 4 wheel alignment of your car. On your road car this means that we can optimise handling, safety and economy. On your race, rally or track day car we can ensure the geometry is optimised for your suspension and tyre type to help you extract the maximum performance available.
As well as being fully conversant with modern electronic engine management we know all about carburettors too. We have a unique 3 stage refurbishment process to bring your old and weary carbs back to their former glory.
Our experience, knowledge and equipment allow the team at Northampton Motorsport to pinpoint and repair defects that others can only struggle with. Our specialist equipment allows us to drill down to the cause of the problem within a budget that suits your requirements.
Race & Rally Preparation
Each member of our team has a unique experience of racing or rallying so we know what it takes to build a competitive car. We can help with any aspect of your car preparation from a minor upgrade to a full build taking your requirements into consideration at every stage.
Northampton Motorsport prides itself on quality of service and achieving results. These ideals also apply to the parts we supply. We only supply quality parts from premium suppliers and whilst this may cost more initially you wont end up doing something twice so can be cheaper in the long run.
All Makes Servicing
As well as our tuning and preparation services, Northampton Motorsport can also carry out general repairs and servicing on your road car and even arrange your MOT for you. we can cater for all cars with a simple “no hidden extras” format.
Just wanted to say a big thanks to you all for the corner weighting and wheel alignment you did on my MK2 Escort on 15/03/12. What a huge difference it has made. As you know I was on track at Castle Coombe the next day and the car just feels so much better and I now have so much more confidence in what the car is doing underneath me.Jon - MK2 Escort
Hi All, Just a quick email to thank you all at Northampton motorsport. Thanks for the rolling road map on my Mallock race car a few weeks ago. I managed to win both races at the weekend (see pictures attached) and the engine performed very well and is very driveable. Thanks again Steve.Steve Dickens
Hey guys, all I can say is WOW AND MORE WOW I have just been out in car for couple of hours, I cannot believe the difference in that car. It has gone from a anti handling thing to this go cart like car, where ever you point it it goes. Before it was done you would loose it 3 or 4 times in one outing, now I cant make it step out. All I can say is thanks for what you guy's have done, it was well worth the trip from the isle of wight and out of the many thousands of pounds that I have spent I would say that the set-up was the best value for money by far. Again thanks for everything guys I will recommend you to everybody. KeithKeith, Isle of Wight
Meet The Team
Troy started his motor trade career with Bond Street Saab in Leicestershire and subsequently moved to Francis Honda as After Sales Director. After almost 18 years in the retail motor trade he decided to follow his true passion and bought a majority shareholding and became Managing Director at Northampton Motorsport. Despite this grand title he is very hands on and his day to day focus is on the operation of the rolling road part of the business and he carries out the majority of the tuning work.
Steve started his motor trade career as an apprentice at Wadham Stringer Northamptonshires main Jaguar dealer. After completing his training and working as part of their service team for a number of years he moved on to Halfords and soon became a Centre Manager. After Halfords Steve also wanted to move into a more specialised field and joined the Carburettor and Injection Center where he was involved in carburettor repair and refurbishment,diagnostics and rolling road tuning. Steve's main focus is on the organisation of the main workshop at Northampton Motorsport but he also has an invaluable knowledge of tuning, carburettors and classic cars. Steve also carries out all of our carburettor refurbishment work
Amanda LockwoodAccounts and Administration
Amanda has had a successful career in business administration and account management. After starting with a small plastics company in Leicestershire Amanda moved to Mattel Toys where she was a key account manager (dream job or what!!) and then onto Ekins surveyors a subsiduary of Barclays where she was the customer services manager and latterly the business relationship manager. In 2008 she decided to leave the cut and thrust of corporate business to take on the greater challenge of bringing some organisation to the world of Northampton Motorsport.
After serving his apprenticeship at a local garage Chris joined Northampton Motorsport in 2012. Since then he has developed his skill set relishing any new challenges sent in his direction. Chris now looks after all our suspension set up work as well as ECU remapping and now builds wiring looms for our Life Racing and Omex engine management installations.
JackCompany Mascot (retired)
After 15 years of faithful service Jack sadly left us in 2018 but we all loved him so much we couldn't bring ourselves to remove him from the team so he's staying put, he is always with us in spirit anyway. Jack was an invaluable member of the team with diverse skills such as lolling around in his bed, playing football with tennis balls, barking at the hoover and soliciting treats from visitors using his power of cuteness.
James's background is in the retail motor trade having spent the last 16 years working for BMW, SEAT and Alfa Romeo franchises. Whilst this has allowed him to develop a high level of expertise in modern vehicle technology his true passion lies with Motorsport.His ability to put together top level track machines was confirmed when his Civic type R was voted car of the year by Japanese tuning magazine Banzai.
OllieTrainee company Mascot and chief fusspot
Ollie joined the company in March 2019 and has settled into his role quickly. He relishes the challenges of his working day and enjoys the interaction with the team and customers alike, although he didn’t seem to enjoy modelling the new Northampton Motorsport beanie hat.
Adam joined in March 2019, although he had worked with Troy almost 20 years ago when they both worked at Bond Street Saab in Leicester. Adam was doing his apprenticeship at the time and a year later Troy left to take over at Northampton Motorsport. Adam was into his rallying and they both had mutual friends so often bumped into each other over the following years. For over 10 years Adam had his own service and repair business so got used to dealing with any problems he came across from engine and transmission builds to diagnostics and wiring making him a versatile and experienced technician. During that time he was competing in his Mini as the driver and also co driving for other competitors. Currently he has a BMW E30 which he uses on Midlands road rallies, 12 car and Auto Solo events, so basically any excuse to go out and play.
