Salisbury: September 23, 2022: Austin Pedal Cars, formerly J40 Motor Company, is the world’s only Austin J40 pedal car sales, service, restoration and community specialist, now owning the Austin trademark which enables an official range of Austin pedal cars, spare parts and accessories to produce.
The Austin Pedal Cars name was unveiled at the 2022 Goodwood Revival as part of a major activation that included a J40 race track, a selection of significant historic Austin Pedal Cars, several classic J40 cars for sale and the latest follow-on prototype Austin Pedal Cars J40. A range of in-house manufactured parts on display also provided a glimpse of an upcoming range of J40 upgrades, more details of which will be announced soon.
The Austin Pedal Cars were the highlight of the event.
The J40 race track was packed all weekend with young racers eager to get their first taste of driving. Kids ages 4-10 were able to pedal around the track on their own, while younger kids were able to get help from their parents or pose for photos on a trackside J40. The track was designed over many months to ensure that it provided the right layout for children to fully experience the capabilities of the classic J40 pedal car, while still allowing room for overtaking, creating some exciting racing and many budding racing drivers.
Crowds of spectators lined the track to watch the spectacle, second only to the two Settrington J40 Cup races which were held at the Goodwood Motor Circuit to celebrate 10 years of J40 racing at the Goodwood Revival.
Austin Pedal Cars CEO Mark Burnett said, “Owning or simply driving an Austin J40 encourages a new generation of classic vehicle enthusiasts. Many owners restore their cars with their children, allowing families to learn about car maintenance together. Racing a J40 introduces the excitement of motorsports and competitive driving, and just owning an Austin pedal car encourages kids to take pride in their vehicle and allows them to enjoy the freedom that a car brings.”
More details on the Austin Pedal Cars J40 Continuation Prototype along with a full range of upgraded parts will be revealed soon.
