New ECU Reflashes Available

During the last few months, we have added a few new maps to our reflash pages for the Toyota 2ZZ engined Elise and Exige including reflashes for ECU’s previously not covered.

If you are looking for a lower cam switch in your normally aspirated Elise/Exige or you would like to increase the performance of your Exige S, Cup 260 or 2-Eleven, then we have reflashes available that range from 265bhp through to 318bhp.

Bentley Takes Double Win!

After the excitement at the Brands round of the Elise Trophy and our absence from the Castle Combe round due to driving work commitments, we returned for a busy day at Oulton Park for the 4th round of this years LOTRDC series.

Hangar 111 driver Andrew Bentley was straight back in the saddle of our production class Elise 111R and right away clicking up lap times that mirrored and exceeded those of the previous season. We were back!!

In brief, we achieved a 1st place finish in Elise Trophy race 1 after the Rover-Powered Elise S2 of Rob Boston retired from P1 on the last lap of the race.

In Lotus Cup UK we held a tight 2nd place to the finish however we unfortunately picked up a 2 lap penalty for leaving the pits 2 seconds early after refuelling!

Elise Trophy race 2 saw an incredible flying start from Bentley, moving from 8th into 1st place within a half-lap, a lead which held to the finish with 2nd place Rob Boston catching up throughout. Amazing adrenalin in the pits and incredible racing to watch.

It all came together this weekend with a race meeting that technically gave us three podiums had it not been for the penalty. Amazing driving by Andrew and great performance from our team.

Thanks to to the team – our latest additions Ben and Sam, also to our regular honorary team member Rob Clarke for the spannering, fuel, lunch and breakfast trips! Thanks also to Marianne without whom we would have been without brakes on Saturday morning!!

I should mention the huge number of calls, emails and text messages we have received from customers all over the world since Sunday – superb encouragement!! See you at Brands Hatch for the Lotus Festival!!

Turbo Technics Supercharger Refurbishment

We are now pleased to be able to offer a refurbishment service for Turbo Technics Elise Superchargers.  The work includes complete disassembly and reassembly of the supercharger unit and inspection of internals with replacement parts if necessary.

turbo-technics-supercharger– Inspection of all Internal Components
– Replacement of Internal Bearings
– Replacement of Inner and Outer Oil Seals
– Remanufacture of some internal components

All work can be combined with a service for your vehicle.

Prices start at £465 +vat for bearings, seals and inspection.

If the supercharger unit has failed (noisy or heavy rattles present), internal components may be required.  Turbo Technics are no longer able to supply stock of these components.  Reproduction of the components to the precise specification required would be very expensive, therefore we recommend having your charger inspected and refurbished every 3 years and the oil cooler system inspected and flushed through at each service.

Please Contact us for more details about this service.

Suffolk Meet – Summer 2002

We’re celebrating 10 years of Hangar 111 this year and what better way to celebrate than to get all nostalgic with some old photos!

These are from our vast collection of Suffolk Meet photos.

“Suffolk Meet” started around 14 years ago after a group of us met at the Lotus factory and decided to keep in touch.  Suffolk was generally closer than the factory to the majority of us so after a few months, Suffolk Meet was born!  Track days, holidays, children, sprint championships and more track days followed!  Somewhere in all that we started a business!

Has it really been 10 years?

This time of year is always a little chilly and damp for testing but in spite of that off we went to Cadwell Park for a day of putting our Elise 111R through its paces with some new and surprisingly effective suspension changes!!  More news on this in full over the coming weeks, but just to wet your appetite here are a couple of laps from our tame racing driver Andrew Bentley!
