NGK go for mower power

Published:  08 November, 2018

NGK and Seven-times British Pro Mod drag racing champion and race car builder Andy Robinson have teamed up to launch the MO70 project to transform a standard ride-on lawn mower in to a speed machine capable of reaching  more than 70mph.

Andy will be spending the next few months working on the Honda mower to enable it to at least exceed the road speed limit at the Santa Pod Raceway drag racing circuit in Northamptonshire next year.

NGK announced the MO70 project at the Saltex horticultural show at Birmingham’s NEC and plans to show the souped-up mower next year in its full racing livery.

Mark Hallam, NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd Marketing Manager, said: “As part of our MO70 project, Andy will be working through the winter months to turn it in to a speed machine. We bought the standard Honda mower off eBay for just a few hundred pounds and have given Andy the task of making it reach 70mph but knowing him it could well achieve 100mph!”

Mark added: “We will be reporting on Andy’s progress over the coming months as he prepares the MO70 to make its track debut next year.”
