The company has become renown by motor sport and classic car enthusiasts who use their services for engine tuning and upgrade services.
This is a relevant process for any modified car, however classic and vintage cars have often been modified through the years to allow them to keep running, not least of which because they were designed to on four star leaded fuel.
What all these vehicles have in common is that they run on petrol and because the car is physically strapped down on the rolling road inside the building, it means it is not feasible to remove the car quickly.
Northampton Motorsport estimate that in the last 10 years over 4000 cars have passed through its tuning facility and in that time, there have only been two minor incidents of fire which were quickly dealt with.
The oldest car Northampton Motorsport has tuned was a 1912 model T Ford right up to current production cars. The most expensive car has been a 1957 Ferrari Testarossa which had just changed hands for £24 million!
The management therefore decided to take further steps to increase fire protection and Tecserv was approached for advice as to what could be done to improve fire protection.
A fully qualified Tecserv engineer visited the site to discuss the various options that might be suitable.
Having conducted research on the various fire suppression systems, Tecserv recommended using Firexo extinguishers.
At the same time, Northampton Motorsport took out a fire maintenance service agreement with Tecserv and having installed the new fire extinguishers we serviced all existing fire appliances.
Northampton Motorsport now has the capacity to deal with a fire quickly without having to worry about selecting the right type of extinguisher or dealing with the mess caused by using a powder type extinguisher.
