Raced out of the historic Silverstone, England, home of the British Grand Prix, ‘Havoc’ is the creation of partners Nick Davies and Rob Loaring, owners of I.C.E. Automotive. I.C.E. has specialized in building V8 racing engines for more than 30 years, however, Havoc was their first professional chassis building effort and what a huge success this 112-inch Austin Bantam-bodied AA/Fuel Altered has become.
Debuted in 2005 at a cold October firework meeting, the partners never expected the car to gain the global popularity it has earned. Until 2014, the car ran a supercharged and injected Chevrolet engine and competed in the British Nostalgia Fuel Altered Association (NFAA) class running down into the high six-second zone at speeds of just over 200mph. 2016 saw the pair remove the faithful Chevrolet powerplant and replace it with a nitro-burning Chrysler Donovan hemi in anticipation of a match-race series with some travelling American nostalgia altereds.
With the mighty hemi installed, the little altered is still considered a work-in-progress for the team, but with Nick behind the wheel, Havoc has run a best E.T. of 6.28 seconds and a top speed of 229.04 mph.
