Car cover

I'm looking to have a new cover made that will fit over the race car when it's transported on the trailer. I'm just south of Birmingham. Any advice on who could make one for me and is not too far away?

If the trailer is not covered ie the car is open on the trailer please be careful the cover flapping in the wind doesn't scratch the car.

I did once .....

I ordered a new cover from Specialised covers in Yorkshire in December. They were very professional, detailed and were good to deal with. My contact is Vicky on 01943 861036/ Vicky@specialisedcovers.com

There's also a set of neat straps you can get to keep your cover in place whilst towing - http://www.hamiltonclassic.co.uk/aca...er_Hugger.html

although I haven't unpacked my box yet- specialised covers provided transit straps sown into the cover as well!

I have used one of the Hamilton 'nets' for 6 years over a loose fitting Halfords cover on my Lola.
It works very well indeed, but the tie down straps are a bit fragile or I'm a bit heavy-handed...

Always wanted a tailored cover for the Lola, but the £400+ ticket seemed too much.
While at the events I use a simple £4.99 plastic tarpaulin to protect the car at night and that has been perfect.
I tension it over the car using 7 bungie cords.

I was very happy with my old cover until it "bounced" out of the car en route from Gurston to Silverstone. So if anybody needs an SR4 cover there should be one still sitting in the undergrowth on A34 nr Oxford somewhere....

Hi Clive, that's amazing - on my way back from Silverstone I stopped for coffee and found a scruffy by of material in the lay by. It did not fit too well as it was far too big for my car but we cut it down and it works great now. I may still have the remenents left over if you would like them back ????
