KEITH DIXON and ASTON MARTIN
     

 

Keith is a regular contributor to the Aston Martin Owners Club
Magazine (circulation 4000 world-wide), providing technical articles
on historical and current engine design and development.



Keith at the wheel of the eleventh and last of the Aston
Martin Works DB3S team cars, built in the 1957. They
were driven by Moss, Brooks, Collins et al and won
numerous events. The engine has been restored and
developed by Beauxfield Limited during the last three
years, with the help of Keith as Design Consultant.

In the summer of 1999 Martin McGlone, the owner of
CSK 200, and two friends brought the DB3S and the
actual Jaguar that won Le Mans in 1953 for a fun trip
to Wales - in this picture you see them together on the
lawn at Keith's Welsh Cottage.

 
One of Keith's roles is Technical Consultant to Beauxfield Limited, of
Warrington, Cheshire - specialists in Aston Martin engine restoration
and re-manufacturing. He has responsibility for the design and
procurement of road and race components including camshafts and
associated valve gear, crankshafts and other core parts to ensure
superior performance in today's highly competitive International
Historic Racing events.
