Stunning customer service, backed by years of knowledge, is what gets the CG Motorsport team  out of bed in the morning! CG Motorsport’s customers come from all areas of the automotive world, from race, track day, daily driver and specialist car. Therefore each application is unique and tailored to the car’s requirement, and whatever the car, they can help.

Mick Deakin is an engineer by profession with over 30 years’ experience in the clutch industry, and apart from a two-year stint spent working with Walter Scott VW Audi of London, has always worked in his native Leeds. His family-run business has been trading for 25 years, during which time CG Motorsport has evolved into the efficient operation it is today, with customer service the paramount concern. If you phone the company, there’s a good chance that you’ll speak to Linda Cardiss, who presented the CG Motorsport awards at our recent Dinner Dance. Not only is Linda Senior Director at CG Motorsport, but she is also one of the most knowledgeable people in the UK when it comes to clutches and clutch theory. Equally, the ever-helpful Rhys from Engineering is always willing to give support or advice.

The team enjoys problem solving – the trickier the better – and unlike some companies that merely sell clutch components, CG Motorsport are more than happy to mix and match components, thus ensuring you get the best components for your car. As they say, no two applications are ever the same. With 56,000 product lines in their catalogue, they will probably have what you need, and if not they have the facilities to make it in their full engineering CNC workshop that includes clutch testing facilities for checking load and lift, along with Aqua and shot blasting machinery and flywheel grinding facilities. All of their motorsport products are machined and hand-built in their premises in Leeds.

The team is currently developing new clutch kits and drive plates along with flywheels. This is an on-going process and currently there is a new CNC machine on order to assist the team to fulfil orders for one-off components.

If it’s just advice you need or your clutch testing (a free service!), why not call in? The kettle is always on!   0113 242 6359
