Hewland Classic

When you are the company that invented the bespoke racing transmission, it’s in our interest to maintain that history and heritage as long as people are interested in classic race cars.

For years Hewland maintained our legacy side-by-side our normal operations. But in 2014, Hewland licensed the long-term support of all H-Gate transmission designs produced prior to 1990, including the celebrated FT, DG, MK5 / MK8, LD, and VG variants to Hewland Classic – part of PDS Racing. The partnership provides support for the ever-growing demand for Hewland products within the historic racing market.

Hewland continues to make all of the transmissions and parts sold through Hewland Classic with the new entity focusing its knowledge and experience of classic car racing to deliver the same excellent level of service and support to Hewland’s valuable classic gearbox customers.
