"I cannot recommend Jon Waggitt and the team at SSCC highly enough, be it for everyday maintenance of your cherished classic, or full restoration of a barn-find historic racer. Jon is meticulous in his restoration and race preparation, whilst respecting the history and originality of all the cars he works on. In my case, Jon worked with me as advisor and specialist in the restoration of my first historic race car, a '69 Tecno F3 and a 1970 Tecno F2, then more recently as full nut and bolt restorer of a now very beautiful Lotus 51, much admired in its recent first outings in Historic Formula Ford.
Currently, Jon is undertaking another full restoration of a 1960 Cooper T52 Formula Junior that I imported from the USA in a sorry and less than original state. Jon has been painstaking in his research of originality and expert in his rebuilding of those chassis parts that had been modified over the years. The car will be one of the best restored and original out there competing in 2020.
Jon is also a racer, pragmatic in his understanding that such cars are there to be raced, but also very understanding in car set up appropriate to car and to driver ability! Without exception, I have got into a car that Jon has set up and found a confidence-building, neutral handling car that encourages immediate commitment and enjoyment."
