As Sherwood began to get more involved with Piper, a seminal decision was taken by Henrotte to split the company into two independent concerns so that he and Gaylor could continue developing the extremely successful tuning accessory concern, while Sherwood took over responsibility for all Piper car production, moving the entire car operation to his workshop premises in Wokingham.
Work and sales continued at an unabated pace for the new Piper Cars concern, but frustration was already setting in as Sherwood realised that the development of the existing GT sports racer has reached a plateau.
