Pure Race Car Construction

Safety, my highest priority, was fundamental in the design of a space frame chassis made from CDS roll cage steel. It has a FIA approved cage and I am currently working on FIA approved wheel tethers which will be available on all subsequent builds. The chassis is also 15% larger that original and this allows us to have drivers up to 6’4″ fit the car and still have their ankles behind the front wheel centre line. The Lola limp is a thing of the past. 

Suspension and brakes are the next area of safety and the suspension is made of chrome molybdenum and brakes are supplied by Willwood and AP Racing. Cost and reliability was covered by using a crate motor from Ford Motorsport. This we breathed on slightly with an 8 barrel injection system, using a MoTeC management system and a dry sump. The 6 speed gearbox is built by ZF for Audi, another cost effective and highly reliable option

The chassis is a common platform and we have made the following tribute – look alike bodies from this era, to fit that platform :

– Gurney Eagle

– Ferrari 312

– Lotus Type 49

– Brabham BT24

– Honda RA273

– BRM P115

– Matra MS7

– Cooper T86

– McLaren M7A

With 420 hp, over 400 ft/lb of torque and a weight of only 1700 lbs, it certainly will focus your attention.
