Southside British Cars, Danville, Virginia


Racing

Racing and Wrenching!

Southside British Cars evolved out of the Vintage Racing hobby and the need for a support base for the race team. We currently have four vintage race cars and two teams based out of our shop; the original Team 51, as well as DWD Racing. Our cars are a ’61 AH Sprite, ’67 MGB/GT, ’67 MG Midget and a ’59 bug-eye Sprite. (See picture album below).

The square body Sprite was the genesis car and has been raced continually since 1992. Jim stared the race history of this car and Julie took it over in 2003. It has gone through several iterations in the 15 years, while always retaining the original look. Now it may be going to a third generation as Julie’s daughter, Ashley is headed toward getting her competition driver’s license. Julie’s husband, Mike is the lead mechanic and engine builder and keeps all of the cars running. Tony Dix is our Crew Chief and provides trackside support.

We are prepared to build you a Vintage Race Car using your car as a platform. We can prep and maintain your existing racecar if you need extended support services. We can find you a race-prepared car if you are inclined to put your toe in the Vintage Racing water and want to hit the ground running. Call us soon and we will discuss all of the options open to you with our racing programs.
