Ex Andy Priaulx Spider restoration

Postby eastlmark » Tue Nov 15, 2016 9:39 pm

Thanks to young Joe Watts at Raw Power motorsport in Essex for these photos he has sent of the rebuild project of an ex Andy Priaulx
race spider. Hopefully more to come. The plan is to get Andy to drive the car at next years Goodwood Festival of Speed. If anyone has been following our Twitter feed yesterday, you will know Andy himself joined in the conversation!

Joe says its Chassis 9932 although not seen any proof of that. Andy Priaulx campaigned for 2 seasons, given Josh Files Clio Cup champion season allegedly used 5 new cars, then its not unreasonable to assume that Andy may have had at least 2 cars during his time in the championship.

Thanks all for comments!

I’ll add some pictures over the weekend and into next week. The roll cage has now been sprayed and is ready for fitting. We are now thoroughly checking everything on the car to make sure it has all been done correctly. We are hopeful she will be finished over the next few weeks. But I’ll keep you all posted.

Thanks

Joe

Sorry for the lack of updates, I went back to uni so the project was put to a stop until summer started.

Now I’m back I’ve done some more work on the Spider over the past week. Some of the jobs include: Roll cage on, rear lights and wiring in, general tidying and organising of entire wiring loom and some other bits and bobs.

I will try to keep posting updates on here as and when I remember.

Hearing some rather shocking news today about a fire at Robbie Watts workshop with several cars lost- Have not had it confirmed yet that this is amongst them but fear the worse. Must be heartbreaking for Robbie, Joe and the whole family to loose such a big part of their lives- at least they are ok thank god.

There has been a crowdfunding appeal set up to help out- although money will never replace all this, at least it may help him get back to racing again.
Best wishes to Robbie and Joe and the rest of the family and just hope to see them out racing again soon.
