    Some introductory words.. as CGTi has opened up a trader section, which we should see grow as word spreads..

    Who is Badger5? Badger who?

    Badger5 started unofficially in 1997 by myself Bill Brockbank, from hobby modification on my good old Jetta for those who remember it, running slide throttles to the now production available Direct to Head throttle bodies, partnering with Jenvey Dynamics & DTA Race Electronics.

    Badger5 Ltd was incorporated in August 2000 and has since grown in experience and product offerings now heavily into turbo 1.8T's whilst competetively racing in Castle Combe Saloon Car C'ship in our own race prepared Seat Ibiza Cupra running >500bhp.

    Almost all products and brands chosen are as used and proven on our own vehicles, be they fast road or race cars. (Lupo 1.8T>200bhp, Ibiza racecar 1.8T>500bhp, Octavia 4x4 1.8T>400bhp).

    I run Badger5 to be customer service first, to treat others as I would like to be treated myself, having had the benefit & experience of working with many top UK tuners in being able to offer products you need, not selling products to just shift boxes.

    I have CGTi to blame for my speed addiction from the good old days of Curborough Sprints, Blytons etc... Beware. The tuning lark is a slippery slope. The more you have the more you want. Give me a call, I will try to oblige your thirst.

    thanks for reading..

    Bill Brockbank

    wooooooooooooooo snakeeeeee snnnnnnnnnnnnake....

    i luv that animation.. have a browse at the weeble trailer for transformers done in badger stylee.. fantastic.

    As for meaning of Badger5..

    My full family name is William Henry Brockbank V (5th).
    Brock in ol ye english is Badger.
    Now my family clearly were'nt too imaginative on the name front as my father is also named William Henry Brockbank IV as was his father III, his fathers father II, and his fathers father father I. Makes me the 5th of the dynisty = 5

    Add Badger to the 5 you get Badger5.
    means nothing really, but kind of does to me.

    Bet that bored ya.
