Ratrace engineers have built a reputation on the track and on the road for building bespoke high performance engines that exactly meet our client’s needs for power torque weight and size for particular vehicle applications.


Specialising in all 7 engines our meticulous engine building methods have proved over the years to produce unequalled reliability and performance with hundreds of race wins and fastest lap credits to our products.


Having some time ago developed the Ford Puma engine to some 240 Bhp we are currently developing similar upgrades for the Ford Sigma engine which will be available very soon. We also specialise in period and specialist design like Lotus Twin Cam, Vegantune VTA and Maserati and have also built a vast array of generic race engines and have competed in the highest levels of Motorsport with overwhelming results. All our engines are hand built in house and with our in house machining facilities we can replicate and reproduce quality products time after time.


We only use top quality components that we have tested in all our race engines to ensure their durability. With a constant development program we are able to design new modifications for the latest engines and continue to improve the characteristics of older engines still being used in competition. We can custom build your engine to suit your track application and can also adjust performance to match your driving style either on the track or on the road.


Although we are experts in the top end competition engine market we also build custom engines for road use and can build to your personal specification and budget. We are also able to assist in providing a full machining service to support home built engines. We will machine your parts perfectly and provide guidance on your project so that you can build and modify your own engine.
