"We are a British company based in Yorkshire England. From our humble beginnings we now design, manufacture and market a world class range of vehicles, sold mainly for private recreational and corporate hospitality users. With our growing international reputation we are expanding and producing highly sophisticated off-road, track and road legal vehicles that are meeting the demands of discerning customers from F1 drivers, world rally drivers to high profile celebrities.
We are firmly established in competitive motorsport, the RX150 Rallycross derivative has its own class in the British Rallycross Championship. In cross country rallying, clients have had great success with race versions of the Rage Hurricane and Comet. In international motorsport we have vehicles competing in the UTV challenge in Portugal and Kenya and have already proven the exceptional performance, durability and handling under extreme conditions.
Our move into international motor sport and the Dakar Rally came via former World Rally Champion, the late Colin McRae and his brother Alister.
In 2008 a prototype Hurricane was taken to the Sahara for testing. The McRae Dakar team then developed the machine to meet FIA regulations and to cope with the rigours of the World’s toughest race – as reported in Car Magazine (December 2010). No less than eight cars were entered for the 2010 event, and in the hands of private entrants these cars have now clocked up more than 50,000 miles while competing over the following years.
It is the feedback and knowledge gained by these endeavours, over the toughest terrain and in fiercely competitive conditions, that give us the confidence to say that Rage products are developed way beyond those of any of our competitors. All our products incorporate the knowledge gained from our Dakar-developed vehicles which ensures extreme performance, toughness and reliability comes as standard.
Our Rage model line up now boasts a range of two seat vehicles with power outputs from 70hp to 200hp – giving blistering 0-60mph times – with a choice of manual six speed sequential or automatic transmission. Reverse gear is standard on all models. The design and production process uses the latest computer aided technology in nearly all phases, from CAD design and simulation, to CNC tube bending, laser tube cutting, milling and turning. Significant investment has been made in both the new factory and production equipment.
We have invested in the award-winning 123insight MRP software system, which has allowed us to streamline our manufacturing facility. We’ve managed to reduce our spares lead times ensuring that we hold enough of the right parts in stock so that we can deliver to you quickly. Our traceability is second to none, and every stage of manufacture tracked, ensuring we meet the same high quality standards every time. In 2014 we were a Finalist in The Manufacturer of the Year Awards because of our highly successful implementation and use of 123insight.
All machines have been rigorously tested by our own R&D team, and also by World Champion Racing and Rally Drivers, who are unanimous in offering their praise and approval of the performance and handling of our products on both tarmac and loose surfaces. All of our vehicles are tailored to each customer’s specific requirements, and are handmade to order. We pride ourselves in the quality of our products, and also the excellent customer relations and after sales service that we offer."
