Mike Hawthorn's Riley Ulster Imp
« on: 23 September 2021, 11:14:22 pm »
Hello All, we are Clive Hearsey & Gary Wakefield from Cheshire and we work together for a precision engineering company in the inspection department, we came along to Grimsthorp and had a wonderful day chatting to those members who where there racing and came away with lots of inspiration and advice.

After our initial prototype the White Riley is already being built by on of our members we needed to find a suitable replacement, this has come along in the form of the Tourist Trophy/ex Mike Hawthorn Riley Ulster Imp that was built in 1934 as one of two works cars for the 24 Hour Le Man of that year.

Our cyclekart will be known from now on as the H&W Riley Ulster Imp, so far we have a rolling chassis, engine with CVT and lots of enthusiasm.  I will add pictures and prototype info at a later date.

Cheers Clive & Gary

It was good to meet you both at Grimsthorpe.    Looking forward to following the build.

Is this your inspiration car?  https://henderson-fellowes.com/1934-riley-ulster-imp-kv-9475/

Ooh jolly good!
Really looking forwards to seeing your build. My White Riley sends her regards and best wishes.

Two Riley’s in the constructors championship should do well, points wise ;c)
Cheers!
