In 1972 when John worked for Roger Clark, Ford decided to use the Lucas Mechanical Fuel Injection System for the first time on Roger's RAC Rally Winning Escort LVX 942J. This made him the first British driver to win the RAC Rally round Great Britain and break the dominance of the Scandinavian drivers. During this time John met Bob Blurton, Motor Sport manager of Lucas who was the main technical expert on the system and living locally he would visit our company and offer his expertise when required. Sadly Bob a good friend and colleague passed away and will be sadly missed. Since the early 70's we have continued to work with the Lucas Fuel Injection for all forms of Motor sport. We are still building new Lucas Mechanical Injected engines and supplying new injection systems to this day.
