Sherwood Engines Ltd are a family run business, established for 50 years, and are ready to expand further in 2020. We are seeking a professional engine builder to join the team, specialising in Ford based Historic Motorsport. We would ideally like to recruit someone with proven engine building experience in the Ford Cosworth BD series and a keen interest in engine development and testing.
Specialising in historic race engine builds, our primary focus is on high performance BD variants.
Sherwood Engines was formed and is run by Alan Sherwood and his son, Paul Sherwood.
A highly skilled and accomplished engine builder, Alan has worked at the highest levels of professional motor sport since building his first BDA.
His is a career that has spanned everything from 4 cylinder industrial power units, high performance BDA, BDG's and Lotus Twin cams, through to Le Mans endurance racing.
After serving his apprenticeship at Perkins he built his first BD in 1971. Ten years later he formed MASS Racing, which later merged with Cambridge Motor sport in 1996.
Always looking for a new challenge Alan accepted a position at Zytek Engineering's Engine Technology Division - heading up the development and test department. Working on projects for PANOZ, the work lead to the US, which is where Alan spent the majority of his time developing V8's and V10's and providing his experience, trackside, to the team's engineers.
