Race Engine Components (REC)

Race Engine Components was established in 1962 and has had extensive race preparation and experience driving many British Sports Racing Cars of the era.

Paul Ivey started his career as an apprentice at Downton Engineering and went from strength to strength from then on. He has been involved quite extensively with the development of the Cooper 'S', Jaguars and the Twin Cam Lotus engines of the time. Eventually this led him to the decision of starting up a special tuning parts business supplying valves to the fast growing car market.

Inevitably this brought Race Engine Components and G&S Valves, the specialised engine valve manufacturer, together. They jointly formed a partnership in the early 80's and together have developed many valve designs and associated parts including valves, retainers and collets suitable for the new breed of high revving racing engines that rev to speeds in excess of 17,000 rpm.

G&S Valves Ltd. has itself serviced the race car and bike industry for over 60 years and together their valves have won at all levels of motor sport including F1, Sports Car, Le Mans, Indy Car, The TT, the World Super Sport 600 Class and many Club Level Championship Races. Both Race Engine Components and G&S valves go into 2010 with enthusiasm as always, and wish all their customers a winning 2010.
