One of the longest running Trials Trucks with one the sports longest running competitor, The Phoenix & Steve Lacey have been a staple of the sport for over 40 years!
Originally a Suzuki SJ410 powered a Ford 4 cylinder, The Phoenix competed in C Class for several years before upgrading to D Class with a 3.5L Rover V8, the engine of choice back in the day!
In 2012 the running gear was removed from the Suzuki and put into a newly built Howat Engineering spaceframe, with Steve & Andrew putting it back together!
One of the only vehicles still competing with a manual gearbox, The Phoenix continues to rise with several modifications done over the last 10 years!
