  1. After nearly 6 years of ownership the time has come to sell my roadgoing Westfield sprint / hillclimb / track day car. This is an opportunity to buy a truly ready to go competitive car which has been run in roadgoing classes (Westfield Speed series W2 and BARC equivalent) but easily has the pace for W3+ on non-roadgoing tyres. In my novice hands it has delivered class wins at Shelsley Walsh, Gurston Down, Castle Combe and Abingdon CARnival and has rarely been out of the top 3. Despite 270 HP it is extremely well set up and predictable, even in the wet. A recent outing at Castle Combe with an instructor, more used to Caterhams, left him seriously impressed with how capable it was. The previous owner purchased the car new as a factory build Sport 2000 and carefully upgraded the car for competitions using the best available parts and suppliers. It certainly is not a show car, with the bodywork reflecting a competition focussed vehicle. However, it comes with the following brand new items for the new owner:- - New Westfield V8 Bonnet (red) - New Westfield nosecone (Black) - New Carbon NV super lightweight carbon wheel arch protectors - New Carbon NV carbon composite boot cover - 10 Litres of Millers Triple Ester competition oil and other spares. Also included is a spare set of 13” Compomotive CRX wheels (like new) and Avon ZZS tyres fitted in April this year, with less than 50 wet track day miles. The additional items would cost around £3k if purchased separately. Price £16.5K to include all above as an ‘on the button’ roadgoing competition car package / amazing track day car. Chassis: Standard Sport 2000 – Registered on age related plate in 2008. Mileage 11,200. MOT until 21.05.22 Steering by Westfield rack, competition mountings, short competition steering arms. Suspension is standard rear wishbones, factory ‘Gen 3’ wide track front. Dampers are Protec alloy spec'd and supplied by Procomp Motorsport. Factory rear anti-rollbar, Playskool front anti-rollbar. Suspension setup by Procomp Motorsport. Westfield alloy uprights, Westfield competition brakes, with 4 pot front callipers and front vented discs. 7” x 13” Prorace 1.2 black wheels on the front and 8” x 13” Compomotive CXR wheels, black, fitted with 215/55x13” Avon ZZS all round (MSA 1b). Body: Standard factory Sport 2000 Post Office red bodywork, with Aerodynamix carbon fibre aeroscreen, carbon effect rear light clusters and carbon effect lightweight dash. Dash 2 electronic display (factory fitted). Dash mounted FIA cutout switch. JK Composite seats; double skinned, and a special order low back seat for the passenger. lightweight wing mirrors. Small headlights. CSR style carbon fibre front wings. CarbonMods carbon fibre lightweight nosecone, fitted with canards. Playskool Motorsport lightweight full safety cage (fully approved for MSA use). Engine: This is essentially the original Ford Power products Duratec engine as fitted by Westfield new. However the engine has been much modified, and its present spec is as follows:- 2ltr. Duratec on standard crank, but carefully balanced, and SBD keyway mod. Lightweight flywheel, by Raceline. Titan drysump kit, Carillo steel conrods, Supertec forged pistons. ARP flywheel bolts, crank pulley bolts, main bearing cap bolts and big end bolts. Cylinder head gas flowed by Simon Armstrong of Ultimate Performance, and camshafts also by Ultimate Performance, fitted with vernier pulleys. visit www.ultimatep.com after which I think you'll agree there isn't anyone better qualified for the job. The engine still runs on the KMS tapered throttle bodies, as used at the time by Westfield, and the KMS ecu. The entire exhaust system was built by Matt Simpson, Simpson Race Exhausts, to dimensions supplied by Simon Armstrong. Typically noise tests at 97-99 db. Engine was initially rebuilt to something like the above spec by Northampton Motorsport in 2011, and re-mapped by Troy Robinson. It subsequently had a precautionary engine rebuild at Northampton (when the dry sump conversion was carried out) in March 2015. In April 2015, the car was checked (following the March re-build) on The NMS rolling road, and was found to be making (at the flywheel) 272 bhp at about 8,750 rpm, and 181 lbs/ft of torque at about 6,400 rpm. Of more practical relevance, the torque exceeds 150 lbs/ft from 4,500 rpm right through to the red line of 8,950; and the power exceeds 250 bhp from 7,400 rpm through to approx. 9,000 rpm. It has been completely reliable, just changed the oil filter and oil very regularly, and only used Millers fully synthetic triple ester competition oil. Transmission: Uprated competition paddle clutch. Gearbox is based on a Ford type 9 5 speed 'box, but everything was re- built in March 2019 using full alloy casings by Steve Perks (SPC transmissions). It is a Steve Perks own design of straight-cut close ratio gear set, on fully needle roller main shaft and synchromesh engagement. The prop shaft is an upgraded Bailey Morris item. The diff is a Ford Sierra based diff. However, it has been rebuilt by Bara Motorsport with 4.44 crown wheel and pinion set and at the same time a ZF plated LSD unit was fitted. The combination of high revving engine mated to this gearbox gives amazing speed ranges through the gears and is key to the car’s competitiveness. 60mph in 1st, 84 in 2nd, 105 in 3rd, etc. and it had been timed at the Aintree sprint at just under 140mph and still pulling. Fuel supply is via a pair of small sprint tank made by Alloy Racing Fabrications, with a separate swirlpot, and 2 fuel pumps, so no risk of fuel starvation unless you run out of fuel completely.
  2. Deposit taken After 15 years of ownership I have decided the time has come to try something different . So I would like to sell my car. It is fully road legal so would be great for either fast road use , trackdays or competition, its not really a show and shine tho. Spec Westfield Narrow Sei chassis with Westfields own diff casing and drive shafts , which help to keep the weight down, it was about 505kg at last weigh-in. The chassis was completely re-jigged and re-finished by westfield when I rebuilt the car back in 2001/2 and has since been on NMS laser set-up rig where it was spot on There is a full roll cage to make it safe if you want to venture out on track. You can remove the side impact bar . The bodywork is smart and in very good condition and has detachable arches , very rare on a narrow! It has an aero screen and also a brand new spare bonnet and nose in case you get carried away ! Engine is the superb Toyota 4age 1600 twin cam , producing approx 160hp. it is fitted with twin 45s, adjustable verniers , Kent cams, Ali Flywheel, Omex ignition,Tony Law manifold, Polo rad, ali catch and expansion tanks. Gearbox is the Ford type E 4 speed. Clutch is an AP H/D plate with Toyota pressure plate. The key to this car is its superb handling. This is due to the Ash Mason developed anti roll bars fitted front and rear and complimented by Gaz monotube , ali bodied , sperical bearing dampers all round. The steering is taken care of by a quick rack. final drive is a LSD with a 4-4 CWP , but I could change this to a 3-9 or 4-1 if prefered Front brakes are lightweight Hi spec calipers , rears are ali golf calipers CXR wheels are included with a set of Avon ZZRs and also a set of slicks for the track. Front Hubs are ali. The interior is sparse and functionable and has a padded Westfied race seat for the driver , however the passenger has to put up with padded squabs, but both have the safety of 4 point 3" harnesses I will try and put up some photos , bare with me , as a degree in IT is needed to load them on here , I will repeat the ad on the Westfield facebook page where I can easily load pics Please ring if you want more info , but I will update ad when I think of more spec I would like offers based on £7500 or maybe a part ex like a Gti or sports caror similar thanks for looking Stu Hill 079 39 266 971
