Burlen Ltd, the world’s only manufacturer of genuine SU (Skinners Union), AMAL and Zenith carburettors, is gearing up for a show-stopping return to the Goodwood Members’ Meeting this month.
From 18-19 March 2017, the Salisbury-based company will be showcasing its latest products and services at the famous Motor Circuit, including one incredibly exciting addition for the very first time.
Burlen is putting the final touches on a completely game-changing, innovative SUi fuel injection system – which sees a fuel injection device work inside a carburettor – and it will debut a prototype at the Members’ Meeting.
Full details on the revolutionary product are still to be announced, although Burlen staff will be on hand to give show-goers a teaser of one of historic motoring’s most eagerly anticipated products of all time.
It will be fitted to a Jaguar D-Type for the event and is sure to draw a crowd – as Burlen has become accustomed to at Goodwood.
The Goodwood Members’ Meeting celebrates and recreates the BARC Members’ Meetings held at Goodwood throughout the 1950s and 1960s, and Burlen will be getting in the spirit by showcasing some of its iconic products.
It will display the full range of SU carburretors and spares with a special focus on racing to tie in with the Goodwood feel, plus there’ll be some restored carbs to show off the company’s restoration expertise.
Free catalogues to be handed out as usual and technical and restoration staff will available all weekend to help answer queries, talk through the new SUi product and more.
Burlen recently celebrated a record-breaking 2016 in which the company continued to demonstrate remarkable growth. By enjoying a hugely impressive annual turnover of £5.2 million in 2016, it smashed its previous best records and its own start-of-year target.
Mark Burnett, Managing Director of Burlen, said: “We are very much looking forward to heading back to Goodwood and setting up shop for the Members’ Meeting – an event that we’ve enjoyed immensely over the years. The first prototype of our SUi injection project will also be going on display for the first time, and even though it is still a work in progress, we’re more than happy to talk visitors through exactly why this is such a revolutionary product. We always love chatting to enthusiasts at the Members’ Meeting and invite all visitors to come and say hello and sample the very best of Burlen.”
