How it began…

John Woolfe Racing was created back in 1967 when the late John Woolfe started a race team with a view to entering long distance sports car events. He was very keen on speed trials, hill climbs and sprinting and his first project consisted of two 7 litre Shelby AC Cobras, followed by a Repco Brabham V-8 powered Chevron. More performance cars followed which led to the use of large displacement V-8 engines which he brought in from America. As a consequence of this, John also began importing and selling speed equipment, customizing and high-performance products to his fellow race competitors and by the end of the 1960’s John Woolfe Racing, as an American parts supply business, had become firmly established.

Today…

Forty plus years on, John Woolfe Racing has evolved into a major international company, continuing to supply high-performance and customizing equipment and additionally, replacement and service parts for American vehicles. We stock many well respected brands and our range includes –

  • Brakes and chassis parts
  • Filters, plugs, belts, hoses and ignition parts
  • Water pumps, electrical units and batteries
  • Exhaust systems
  • Engine oils, lubricants and paint -in fact, virtually any part that may wear out and need replacing.

In addition, we offer a special order service for locating those hard to find items, and our regular shipments can guarantee an excellent delivery time.

Our prices are very competitive, but we also welcome price comparisons so if you have been quoted a better price elsewhere, we will always aim to match or improve on it if we can.
