AMOC Area 14 Summer Drive

ASM participated in the Area 14 AMOC Summer Drive.


Seven cars lines up at the Thornham Four Horseshoes for a Le Mans style start with two ASM DBR's included in the mix.
The day's route was very well planned and took in some great East Anglian roads on the way to visiting RAF Bentwaters Cold War Museum and onward to lunch at the Froize Inn, Chilesford.
Thanks to Brian and Julia for organising a great day.

Prescott Speed Hill Climb

Once again ASM supported the Prescott Speed Hill Climb event run by the local Rotary Club.
This is a great event that manages to raise a large sum of money for charity every year.


The event is on course to raise around £20000 this year which is an excellent result. Our thanks go to all those who give their time to make the day so much fun.

This is a non competitive event, so there are no requirements for the usual track safety gear. In fact pretty much anyone one anything can have a run up the famous hill.

One of the oldest entries present was a Vauxhall Prince Henry through to modern equipment such as the Renault Clio seen running before us on the video above.

We were squeezed in between a gaggle of GT40's and Frontline Developments rather roarty MGB.

This year we had entered two cars and the video shows the last run of the day in EOL 898C. This is an XK 3.4 powered car running on stage two head and carbs.

ASM DBRi Le Mans


Following on from our successful Spring Open Day we have been getting on with the serious business of putting cars together.


One of the features of the Open Day was out latest Injection engine.
This unit was displayed under glass in coffee table style and attracted much interest.

Now though, the engine is resting in the rolling chasssis that was also displayed.



The unit was fired up today and settled into a smooth idle straight away.
a quick set up of the throttle position sender and we are pretty much set.

 

It just remains to progress the rest of the car through to VOSA IVA test.

ASM Spring Open Day 2014.

 
 
The weather was kind to us once again and the day remained dry.

 
Our yard had been cleared and swept ready for the arrival of some exotic machinery.
 
 
The ASM Demonstrator car (rear) hosted several trips around our country lanes.
EOL 898C in the foreground attracted plenty of interest. This car has been constructed alongside our customer builds and is available to purchase and enjoy for this season from stock.
Please contact us if you wish to view / trial but be quick though..

 
We had three customers visiting with their cars this year.

 
Rolling chassis with it's GRP body in the background.

 
the ASM 3D timber buck produced in conjunction with 3D Engineers.
was displayed behind an ASM chassis that is ready to commission for alloy work.

 
All pictures here have been taken by visitors to our annual Open Day.

 
The yard held upwards of fifty cars at one point.

 
an impressive gaggle of Astons made the journey to visit the works.

 
Including this rather lovely DB6.

 
'YPC' is ASM Alloy build number four and lives nearby to the works address.

 
An unusual sight in any event, this McLaren was a little more unusual to be seen in a farmyard.
He turned up just in time to blag nearly the last clean concrete parking space.


Thanks as always to those who help to make the day run so smoothly. We passed around the charity bucket for East Anglian Children's Hospice and are very happy to report a sum of £270 was raised. Thank you for your generosity. The hospice is in the process of fund raising for a new build care unit.

A testing Christmas for ASM.


Whilst some people wind down for the Christmas holidays at this time of year we at ASM crack on with the important work of getting cars built.
Our latest car is seen here just ready for the journey to Norwich VOSA testing station for it's Individual Vehicle Assessment (IVA) test.



Starting up the Jaguar XK engine.


The first journey out into the yard.


Off the ramp -

- and into the yard.
A little muddy underfoot but nothing a quick rinse won't sort out.
Especially as the car is pre-paint at this stage.

 
Tested successfully and delivered to the paint shop ready for the Spring.

ASM DBRi

We can now supply full management and multiport injection systems to complement our cars and engines.
The system fitted to our demo car has been designed to conceal the majority of components and wiring giving a nice clean aesthetic appearance for your engine bay as well as delivering modern levels of performance and convenience.

ASM's New DBRi demonstration car. This car made it's first public appearance at Goodwood Revival last September. It is now fully commissioned and ready to impress visitors.
