WEST TO OPEN THEIR WORKSHOP

 

Adelaide-based manufacturer West Motorsport Australia will fling open its doors this Sunday, offering a rare opportunity for the public to get an insight into a racing car manufacturing facility.

Established in 2005, West Motorsport Australia is Australia’s only designer, developer and manufacturer of high performance race cars for a global market.

A race car engineering company and producer of the West LMP4 and DSR/CSR/C6SR world-leading Sports Racers, West is also the sole APAC Asia Pacific distributor of the Firman RFR F1000.

“We are very excited to welcome everyone to West this Sunday, it is sure to be a great day,” West Race Cars Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director Allan Branch said.

“Never before has there been the chance for members of the public to visit our facility in this style and get closely involved with our cars and our staff, and Leo being here is very special indeed.

“An impressively-credentialed international racing driver originally from France, Leo runs our operations in Thailand, has been a celebrity driver in feature films, raced in Europe and Asia, and has a resume many drivers would dream about - no one knows more about our cars than Leo.

“I can also confirm that Leo is planning on driving our new LMP4 model in the Australian Sports Racer Series in 2017 – adding Down Under to his extensive driving resume.

“If you can come down on Sunday, I highly recommend you do – it will be a fun and informative day out for all racing enthusiasts.”

The most well-known home for West’s racing machines is in the Australian Sports Racer Series – a national racing series that hosts fast-paced and entertaining racing across five rounds of the Shannons Nationals.
