Historic racing is in our blood…

We’ve been a part of the historic racing scene pretty much since its inception; indeed Richard and his father Barry before him are passionate racers past and present, so we have a deep understanding of the importance of meticulous preparation.

Over the years RH Classics has built, prepared and maintained a wide range of historic cars that have competed successfully in world class events on the historic motor sport calendar. 

Events have included the Goodwood Revival, Silverstone Classic and the Mille Miglia amongst others.

Our first-hand experience is significant; our expertise covers a wide range of post wars cars: 

  • Jaguar XK120
  • Jaguar C Type
  • Jaguar D Type
  • Jaguar E Type
  • Aston Martin DB4
  • Jaguar Mk 2
  • Ford Cortina-Lotus
  • Ford GT 40
  • Lola Mk6
  • Ferrari 308GT4

Richard is a highly experienced racer and is equally happy sitting behind the wheel as he is underneath a car, tools in hand. 

Richard number 2 or Jodders, is a talented race mechanic with 20 years hands-on experience with some very high profile teams.  Whilst his day job is very much with us, we’re delighted to see him travel around the UK and Europe during the historic racing season, where you’ll witness his spanner ship on a wide variety of machinery.

Our current project is a early 60’s Zink Mk111 Z-4, which Richard has painstakingly rebuilt and is currently being readied for the 2021 historic racing season. 

One of a handful of examples known to survive, ours has enjoyed a full and varied race career in period in the SCCA series in the hands of John Gordon. 

Events include the America Road Race of Champions in 1966 and much on-track action at Watkins Glen throughout the 60’s. 

With superb handling, combined with great power to weight courtesy of its’ Ford-Cosworth- Lotus twin cam, the Zink is an effective weapon little known on European circuits in period, which could all change, some 55 years on…
