Hi Mike,

 

Having just finished our time racing in Iame Cadets, Winning races & Championships on Bontoft Engines.

Myself and my son William #19 would like say how grateful we are for the time and effort Mike has put into building our Iame engines.

I know without Mikes skill and knowledge plus the passion he clearly has about preparing a race engine our job would have been a lot harder.

Having been involved in karting myself for 23 years and used various engine builders, I can say Mike is the best I have worked with.

Anyone looking for an engine builder that’s honest and motors to be prepared and perform to the best of their ability I would strongly recommend you give Bontoft a try !!!

Again Mike Thank You

 

Regards

Stefan Elswood
