Track & Race Cars magazine, October 2008
UK magazine


This book is aimed primarily at hill-climb and sprint car and helps to build one from a budget. It begins with choosing the right engine and works through to design and construction. There is an extensive amount of pictures and diagrams, which does help as there is a lot to read and it breaks up the text well. It describes the subjects that will affect this kind of build in good detail and would be very helpful for people looking into this area.

British Racing News, December 2008
The magazine of the British Racing & Sports Car Club

Astoundingly comprehensive, well-written – with nicely inserted humor – it might be a soft-back, but this book is well worth 25 smackers. Even if the last thing you want to do is build a ’bike-engined racer. If you thought the process was just welding a few tubes together and slotting a breaker’s yard ’bike screamer and ’box in there, then think again – it is nothing of the sort. It is a major project, likely to daunt many, demanding determination to succeed and the most fastidious attention to detail. Pashley has those qualities, as proven in the past 20 years spent designing and building three ’bike-engined hill-climbers from scratch, at the time immersing himself in others’ similar projects. And the complete, honest way he approached that is evidently how he approached writing this book: it shines from every page. Mrs Pashley, the book’s unpaid proof reader, has done a great job. She also ‘gets’ hubby’s subtle humor. Under ‘C’ in the alphabetic glossary of suspension, steering and chassis terms, we find; ‘‘C’ word, compromise. A device for by-passing impasses met frequently during the design and construction processes, normally determined whilst [sic] engrossed on unconnected activities such as sleeping or drinking.’ The reviewer is a qualified mechanical engineer with decades of motor sport engineering under his belt: I learned more from this book. In a way it is a worthy, more modern, yet more specific, companion to Terrapin guru Allan Staniforth’s obligatory 'Race and Rally Car Sourcebook'; to which Pashey makes deferential reference within his pages. Informative and educational – and fun to read. Who cares if it’s a $50.00 paperback? Read it; you won’t be disappointed.

Speedscene, July 2008
The magazine of the Hillclimb and Sprint association

As anyone who read his long-running series of articles in 'Race Tech' magazine will know, Marengo constructor Tony Pashley is as adept at conveying the technicalities of race car construction to the reader as he is at actually building the cars themselves. With the modern motorcycle engine now the power unit of choice for the majority of cars in the smaller – and some in the larger – capacity classes in hillclimbing, it’s perhaps surprising that the modification and installation of bike engines for use in competition cars has rarely been covered in detail in any publication. So it’s good that Veloce have entrusted to Tony the first book to be devoted entirely to the building of these cars. This is an essentially practical guide, covering all the basics of race car design and construction (of both tubular and honeycomb chassis) based on experience gained with Tony’s three highly successful Marengo chassis. In any design process, other people’s ideas provide not only inspiration but a valuable guide, and a useful feature of the book includes multiple examples of suspension construction, engine installations, damper layouts, exhaust and cooling systems and many more essential items laid out on one or more pages for instant comparison. Materials and hardware selection form another important part in the process and the author guides us through these and indeed all the myriad of other basic engineering techniques involved. An engineer is, he reminds us, someone who washes his hands before going to the toilet! – an old saying perhaps, but just one example of Pashley’s immensely readable style that provides an easy grasp of a complex subject. This, together with literally hundreds of diagrams and full colour illustrations, make this book an absolute ‘must read’ for anyone contemplating such a project.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Tony Pashley has been active in motorsports for almost fifty years, starting out in motorcycle scrambling in 1957 and subsequently being involved in both competing and developing machinery in various branches of the sport on two, three and four wheels. Initially trained as a toolmaker he subsequently worked on engine development in the aircraft industry before becoming a project engineer in the nuclear power industry. He has during the last twenty years been involved in speed hillclimbing, invariably driving racing cars of his own design and construction with considerable success.

HASH(0x9e83b1b0) von 5 Sternen Building a Motorcycle Engined Race Car 1. Oktober 2008
Von Roger Q. Callaway - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book is great. It is informative, well written, and entertaining. If you sense a qualification here it is only that the book is really about building a race car for a very specific class and type of racing. You do get lots of information that is general, because after all it is a car. You get a very good idea of all the little bits that are required. This is in marked contrast to many of the build a Locost sports car books. If you are interested in race cars, and race car mechanical systems, and appreciate good writing, this is the book for you.

HASH(0x9d0cbbf4) von 5 Sternen Fails where it really should not 19. August 2010
Von Racecar Fabricator - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book falls short exactly where it should be at its best - how to adapt a motorcycle engine to a car.
The writer tries too hard to touch many of the aspects of racecar building and leaves you asking "why?".
There are so many better books about chassis engineering, design and construction, suspension and pretty much everything else but no books about how to make a bike engine work properly in a car.
With Staniforth, Smith and many others covering these areas so well, there is no need to spend so many pages on it...

HASH(0x9d0cbad4) von 5 Sternen great intro 3. September 2008
Von Osorio Batres Silvia Rebeca - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a fine book with lots of good info in it. Beginners to suspension design and tuning will find it fairly easy to understand as this section is well presented though basic. The other sections all do a decent job of covering engines trannys etc. Where this book loses 2 stars is the chassis section which covers tube chassis and honeycomb but doesnt cover either enough for you to actually set about making one for yourself. No practical basic chassis design principles are covered. I really would have liked a set of basic plans for a simple chassis that could be modified as needed individually (see Ron champion book or haynes roadster)

HASH(0x9d0cbbc4) von 5 Sternen Great Book! 5. Januar 2013

So I have been planning on building my own "motorcycle" engine race car for a while now so when I saw this book I immediately bought it. When I read the review some people complained about how there wasn't enough information in the book or that the pictures in the book are too small. I found this not to be the case, obviously if your planning to build a car like this you can't ONLY buy this book and expect to be able to build something like whats on the cover. Here is what the book does well and what readers can expect from this book:

-This book provides good BACKGROUND on all the aspects of building a motorcycle engine race car. You can see this just from looking at the table of contents. Its also a great starting point for learning about suspension geometry.
-This book also contains many pictures, although most of them are small, that can be very helpful. Sometimes its good to be able to visualize a design and draw from what other people have done.
-This book contains some very specific information, that I haven't been able to find anywhere else, about how to build a race car specifically using a motorcycle engine. There are certain modifications one must do to a motorcycle engine, such as changing the oil sump, in order to use the engine in a car.

-Like I said before this book isn't really as much a "how to" build the car on the cover, as the title suggests, but more a guide. You will probably not be able to build a race car only using this book.

So in conclusion I would definitely recommend this book as a good background text rather than a "how to". Also buy this book if you are specifically looking to use a motorcycle engine in your race car because it contains some very specific information regarding that.

HASH(0x9d0d4aec) von 5 Sternen Excellent start for an overall picture of what is involved 8. September 2008
Von JagLite - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I enjoyed reading this book very much. It is a great overall view of building a car using a motorcycle engine. It is not a book on how to "build this car" however. Do not think you will be able to design and build a car using only this book! The author gives a good general discussion of chassis design, suspension designs, general layouts and set up but he does not tell you what to do. I like the many very clear photographs showing various ways others have done things. Like several different types of uprights, a-arms, braking systems and so on. He gives basic information on how to set up a differential to work with a sprocket and chain drive and how to modify the bike engine oil pan to work in an automotive situation. I certainly agree with his recommendation to get and use the stock bike wiring harness including the ignition switch and key! Many builders have had a lot of trouble just trying to get the engine to start when making up their own harness.

I think this is an excellent book to get the overall picture. Then if you wish to actually build a car you will need to get several more books on actually designing the chassis, laying out suspension, figuring what hubs, brakes, spindles, shock arrangement and so on to use for your design.

I would certainly recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in putting a motorcycle engine in a car too. Whether a Lotus 7 clone, any kit car, one you design yourself, or just to put in a street car as is so common today, this book will be well worth the money for your project.

I am designing my own cars, one for autocross in the FSAE class as well as a road car and I have learned a lot that will save me time and money from this book.

Highly recommended.
