Darren George is back

According to TotalKitCar http://www.totalkitcar.com/2014/08/07/find-your-forte/

"Autosport GP Engineering, based on the Kent coast and run by Darren George, offer their take on the iconic GT40 called GT Forte, which is designed to be an affordable build."

I didn't think Darren George ever left the scene? It was my understanding that he let GTS Tuning go up the swanny to focus more on the GT40 reps.

And before anyone suggests anything, I've got no affiliation to him or any of his companies past or present!

May have to sell my Royal Mail shares and buy corn futures

Even got a website - http://www.autosportgpengineering.co.uk/page1.html

You gotta love the quote - "With many years experience in the high technology world of Formula One car racing, we can now provide the same level of technical expertise to your needs. Whether that's design, CNC turning, CNC milling, welding and fabrication or GRP composite manufacture."

Shouldn't that read " many years experience ripping people off...."

Maybe just concentrating on one kit car type will improve things, tbh the GT40 kit looks very smart and well thought out

Hope things go well and good luck to them


those Wide Rear Wheel Arch Add Ons would look great on my bluebird!

I don't think his ability to produce a nice product was ever in question ? Just his criminally poor business ethic.

Reading THIS THREAD it seems you may be right although he does appear to have changed his MO.

"...I am in desperate need as Darren doesn't want to sell me any more parts as I am to fussy...."

It could be worse; He could take your money and not send the parts.

He used to design suspension for F1 apparently. Thought he used to have the gtforte web site.

The irony of a replica kit car manufacture (Tornado) complaining that Darren has ripped off their chassis design. I guess they now know how Ford feel lol.....
