As part of testing for our entry into the Motor Magazine Hot Tuner challenge we organised a private track day at Phillip Island circuit. Phillip Island was chosen as it was similar in layout and speed to Eastern Creek where Hot Tuner will be held.
We also has a few lucky customers come out and join us as well as good friend Pete Wrench who was testing his HPF tuned Evo X and giving hot laps!
Our friends at Pedders Suspension not only helped us setup our VE’s suspension, but got plenty of track time in their project ‘eXtreme VE’. HPF has been heavily involved in the development of the Pedders VE, having fitted and tuned the Harrop supercharger kit as well as the clutch, exhaust, cam and balancer. Check out more information on the car here.
We will be holding more track days in the future where we can help you use your car at its limits legally as well as provide advice on car setup and the best lines. If you are interested in hearing more about the next drive day register your interested here and we’ll keep you informed.

Here’s one track special that is a little bit different to the cars we usually work on. Known affectionately as ‘The Monoskate’ it is the last Australian built George Reed Special which raced in the late 1940′s and 50′s and is now owned and raced by friend of HPF Graham Raper.
It has a long and distinguished history in Australian motorsport having won many races over the years, beginning in 1950, when it won all three major races at Mount Panorama, including the 1950 Bathurst 100. Read more…
