Westfield SpeedSport Carbon

Limited edition FACTORY BUILT Westfield SpeedSport Carbon
Engine by Scholar Racing
Westfield Racing Green. July 1999


A very fast and capable limited edition Westfield which strikes a nice balance between a road going car, and one that is awesome on track! The engine was tuned and developed by Scholar Racing (Formula Ford Engine Builders) and has never given me any problems.

A WSCC sponsor and motorsport engineer commented that "if only all Westfields were like this one", following a hot Mallory park track day where the car temp was rock solid, the oil pressure was great and the coolant level stayed constant.

Current mileage 15,521 Tax until Sept 2005, MOT until July 2006

This car has a baffled sump which means no oil surge when cornering on the very sticky and very new Yokohama 048R tyres. These tyres offer amazing grip in the dry, and work very well in the wet.

Since owning this car I have changed the wheels to lighter 13" CXRs with 048 tyres at the end 2004, upgraded the seats to lighter racing seats, added a 6 point quick release "aircraft" style harness on the drivers side, added the baffled sump, added smaller front indicators, and added the high level brake light.
