Motorsport

Here at Paint Perfect we have a keen interest in all forms of motorsport and we have enjoyed working on a number of track cars and motorbikes. If you have a car or motorbike that you race or use for track days which you would like respraying, please contact us to discuss your requirements.

For 2011 we painted the S2000 and NGTC BMWs run in the British Touring Car Championship by Geoff Steel Racing. After an interesting season with a driver change halfway through we were invited to the season finale at Silverstone where the NGTC car made its debut to become the first Turbo BMW to compete in BTCC. In the off season we painted both cars again to repair the battle scars and ready them for the 2012 season.

We have also completed work on their BMW M3s used in GT Cup and a full respray on the BMW 3 Series used by MP Motorsport to win the 2012 Britcar 24 Hour Race.

We performed a 3 colour full respray on Kev Wendt's BMW M3 ready for the start of the 2010 Euro Saloons season.

The roof is carbon fibre, the bonnet, doors, boot lid, front wings and body kit are all GRP. The M Sport V8 engine produces about 550bhp.

We resprayed the car in a striking bright red, brilliant white and metallic grey colour scheme working only from one sketch supplied by Kevin on an A4 sheet of paper. Each of the lines were masked and painted by hand using experience and judgement to produce a smart looking colour scheme that complements the shape of the car. This really outlines the capabilities of our team.

Kevin invited us to Silverstone to watch the car perform in its first race weekend in the 2010 season, achieving a class win even with the power steering not working! After narrowly missing out topping the class in the final standings due to sabotage and a 2011 season blighted by mechanical issues we are keen to see how Kevin and the BMW progress this season and wish him the best of luck.

We also did a full repaint on a Suzuki GSXR 1000 and belonging to John "Jonny 5" Otter who rode it to become to 2010 Michelin Power Cup 1000cc Champion.

We resprayed the bike at the start of the 2010 season in white, pearlescent powder blue and dark blue metallic. Again working off some rough sketches and required colours we were left us to do the rest. We created a unique design to show off the shapes of the bodywork and stand out amongst the other bikes on track. Once in the sunlight the pearlescent paint work really stands out and looked great dominating the races at Cadwell.

We have resprayed two Ford XR2s for Andrew Lightfoot / ARL Racing that are both used in the 750 Motor Club Stock Hatch Series. The first one gained the nickname "Pinky" due to its faded red paintwork when it was bought, but after a trip to our Clayton Road workshop there was no mistake it was bright red! After a successful season "Pinky" had gained a reputation as a race winning car and was quickly bought. Its orange coloured replacement arrived having previously been sponsored by Halfords. Andrew surprised us when he specified the car to be painted bright green similar to the Kawasaki factory colours. This complemented the gloss black roof and makes one mean looking Fiesta! We wish Andrew the best of luck with the season and hopefully "Ninja" will remain ahead of the pack and stay looking pristine!

With this enthusiasm for motorsport it was inevitable that Paint Perfect would gain a Motorsport Division. A Renault Clio Cup 172 has been purchased to form the basis of our race car. It will be heavily modified and will feature a number of custom touches to showcase our abilities. Whilst the Clio takes shape a half finished Peugeot 106 GTi was bought and transformed into a track day car. Naturally we had to give it a full three colour respray as well as finishing off the work required to get it ready for the track including strut brace, fire extinguishers, oil catch tank, a custom made aluminium oil cooler bracket, a custom made dash board and centre console, new wheels, spoiler, up rated brake pads, vented and grooved discs.

We are looking to expand our motorsport operation and offer a full service from sourcing, building and painting track day cars.
