West Chassis

C and D Sports Racer


"The West chassis is a carbon-fibre reinforced, semi-monocoque space frame. The driver is surrounded by smooth 1" thick carbon panels. These pieces are vacuum bagged and oven cured. The chassis uses front and rear steel tube sections for easy repair, with the composite center for safety. The 6 speed electronic paddle / button shift is like modern F1 cars maximising the cars performance and consistency. The new Kawasaki ZX10 2007 crate engine revs to 12000 rpm and adds a new dimension of reliability to motor racing."

From the West Race Cars' cars page.


West announced their new LMR chassis at the PRI show in December of 2006. The new car will be available for delivery Spring 2007.

The car can be configured for CSR with a crate Kawasaki ZX14 (dry-sumped) or as a DSR with West's latest generation tunnel floors. Crate ZX10 motors are available for the DSR or they will supply motor mounts for other 1 litre engines of choice.
