Photo above is from the Discovery channels "Dream Machines" in which they built not one but two Pilgrim cars! (Both the Sumo and the Speedster, which we also carry).



Here's what the Discovery channels "A car is born" have to say about the Sumo. Which was there very first car chosen when they started the TV series!

The first of the 'ÖIs Born' series was
presented by former vet Mark Evans.

Mark built a Pilgrim Sumo - a replica
inspired by the 1960's super car the
AC Cobra.


Over 15 episodes, 'A Car is Born' was a step by step guide to building a super car from a kit - we saw the whole process from choosing the kit to taking the finished car for testing by Ian Forrest - Chief Racing Instructor at Knockhill Race Circuit. The philosophy of the show was a simple one - to provide anybody watching with the confidence and the know-how to have a go for themselves.

Although Mark was an avid car enthusiast, he had never tackled a project like this before, but it was one of the most enjoyable experiences of his life and has sparked a passion for engineering projects that has so far continued for six series.

A Car Is Born helped give a welcome boost to the whole kit car industry; it has been estimated that from an audience of over 2m so far nearly 2000 people have been inspired to purchase and embark on their own projects.
