Hangar 111 & Turbo Technics

Hangar 111 are pleased to announce our engagement with Turbo Technics to become the official service centre for Turbo Technics TT190 and TT230 supercharger installations.  Alongside providing a full maintenance and repair service for the cars, we will also stock replacement and upgraded parts including belts, pulleys, injectors and ECU configurations for the K-Series supercharger kits for the Elise and Exige S1, 340R and Elise S2.

Using many of the carefully designed components from the TT kits and our in-depth knowledge of supercharging the Toyota engined Lotus models, we now have the basis for our own development of a new breed of supercharger kit for all K-Series Elise and Exige.  This is planned for later this year.  The new kit will deliver road-going refinement and durability combined with options to allow more aggressive use on the race track.

If you are looking to supercharge your K-Series Elise, Exige or 340R or you already have a TT190 or 230 that requires an update to our specification, please contact us.

O2 Sensor Simulator

 To remove that annoying MIL light when using a track day decat or low-cpi sports cat on any car (including Toyota 2ZZ vehicles), we have developed an easy-to-install and configure O2 Sensor Simulator.  This neat little device sits between the ECU and the Post-Cat O2 sensor and simulates the voltage and frequency required to let the ECU know that everything is okay.

300S on EVO Supercar Tour!

A Hangar 111 prepared Exige 300S took part in May’s Supercar Tour. “There was only one car I couldn’t keep pace with” said a proud Pete Taddeo, owner of the Starlight Black Exige…And you’ll just have to buy the magazine to find out which!

Pete’s car is prepared by Hangar 111 and incorporates the Komotec 300S kit which delivers over 300bhp and 199lbft. The well-proven upgrade kit for the supercharged Lotus Exige S has been installed in over 60 cars world-wide and as far as we know it is still the most powerful road and track-friendly forced induction kit available.

Lotus Festival – Sunday June 14th

The 2009 Elise Trophy moves onto Snetterton In June and organisers LoTRDC have organised a full range of attractions to support the racing and make it a real day out.

In addition to 4 Elise Trophy races – 2 for Production cars and two for Modified/211 you can enjoy:

  • World record attempt for largest parade of Lotus cars (see below)
  • Lotus Type 72 Formula 1 car demonstration lap
  • Lotus concours d’elegance – pre 1973, 1974-1995, 1996 onwards
  • Lotus clubs displays and historic parades including F1 cars
  • Lotus related trade stands (including HANGAR 111)
  • Classic Team Lotus display and merchandise
  • Weekend camping with Saturday night BBQ and band
  • Lotus enthusiasts pedal car race
  • Full support race programme – no fewer than 11 races on the day

The fastest man on Earth and double World Land Speed Record-holder, Wing Commander Andy Green, will be competing in the Elise Trophy at the wheel of a Lotus Elise. Andy’s involvement will help to raise awareness and funds for the Bloodhound SSC project.

For those of you who don’t already know, Bloodhound SSC is the latest project to be undertaken by Richard Noble and Andy Green and was launched at London’s Science Museum last October by government minister Lord Drayson. The target for Bloodhound is to exceed 1,000mph (yes, that’s right!).

In conjunction with Lipscomb Lotus and Motorsport Vision there will be an attempt to get over 500 Lotus cars in a parade around Snetterton circuit on Sunday afternoon. The previous record was set in 2007 with 313 Lotus’ taking to Brands Hatch but with the longer Snetterton circuit access should be easier this time. Cars will be assembled around midday before setting off on the record attempt.

You’ll need to pre-register to take part in the Lotus Festival record attempt for the Largest number of Lotus Cars in a parade. You’ll then receive one email update in April, May and one week before in June keeping you abreast of event details and times.

Sunday 14th June Advance Discounted Tickets for Lotus Enthusiasts are just £6.50 each including postage. Gate price on the day is £12 each.  £1 from the sale of each of these tickets will be donated to Little Havens Children’s Hospice.  Children 12 and under are FREE

For all info, to buy tickets and to register for the record attempt go to the LOTUS FESTIVAL web site for full details.
