When it comes to building and preparing a race car, there’s a lot of things to consider. It isn’t simply a case of throwing things together and hoping for the best, as expertise and a good understanding of race car mechanics is required. This is why it’s always best to seek the help of a professional team. Rather than worrying about whether or not you have met your specifications, you can relax knowing that safety requirements and race regulations have been met. At Harding Auto Services, we can help you at any time. Whether you are starting from scratch or simply looking to make a few improvements here and there, you can count on us.

Why is Track and Race Preparation So Important?

Any car that is being raced on the track needs to be kept in good condition at all times, as you will want to be ready for whatever a race throws your way. As competing puts a great deal of stress and pressure on every part of the car, the key really is to ensure that everything is working as well as possible and that nothing is going to let you down. This includes testing everything from checking nuts and bolts have been tightened to testing safety equipment.

Driving on a track puts a lot more pressure on a car than standard driving would, which is why it is vital to prepare the vehicle beforehand. For example, brake fluid should be new to ensure efficiency and all fluid levels should be topped up to avoid fluid starvation. It’s also important to check brake pads and discs, with spares should you need them. When brake pads and discs become worn, they don’t work as well as this can affect your driving on the track. Tyre tread is another thing that you should always check when preparing a race car, as you will need enough tread left after it has been used on the track. These are some of the easier aspects of track and race preparation, but there’s actually a lot more that goes into it and this is when it’s helpful to enlist the help of those in the know.

When you take the time to properly take care of preparation, you are giving yourself the best chance of having an enjoyable and successful track race.

Here's what some of our clients say


Thank you and all your team for fitting in the work on my son’s car today at very short notice and doing a wonderful job.

Hardings did a terrific job on my exhaust. The customer service at the garage was brilliant.

I brought my BMW here a number of times now, so my feedback is based on a cumulative experience, not just one-off. There are standard car services out there - you know, the ones which will try to do a minimum work to "cover" issue symptoms, get paid and move on to a next customer. And there is Mike Harding's one. Who always strives to resolve the problem entirely, not just to cover it up. Who provides a detailed report with empirically proven underlying cause and steps taken to rectify it. Do you want to pay less... but a few times? Choose other service. Do you want to pay a fair price once and really forget about your problem for good? I suggest you speak with Mike.

July 2019


I cannot fault the fantastic team at Harding Auto Services! I needed some major repair work done on my Landrover Defender and they were helpful and kept up communication the entire time (my vehicle was with them for approximately two weeks). When it came to specifing what work needed to be done and the overall cost they were completely transparent so there were no "nasty surprises" when the job was finished. They obviously know what they are doing with classic Landrovers and I will 100% recommend them to anyone!
