Colchester Racing Developments

Colchester Racing Developments Ltd, founded by Selwyn Hayward and continued by Clive Hayward, produced Merlyn racing cars from 1960 till 1979.

During this time we built up our own machine shop to manufacture race car components. Machining and engineering for customers became a successful addition to the business and eventually CRD Tool and Engineering Ltd was formed.

After more than 37 years of trading the decision was taken to close CRD Tool and Engineering in November.

Clive continues to run Colchester Racing Developments Ltd. The manufacture and supply of all genuine Merlyn parts, including chassis repair and fabrication work, is not affected by this change.

Simon Brown (Trackstar Racing Services) remains the Merlyn build specialist in the UK, he and Clive are the points of contact for any Merlyn based requirement that you may have.
