Welcome to Jessop Racing the home of Andy and Brian's Westfield
How we came to own it
A friend of ours purchased a Westfield and in June 2004 he invited us to join him for a track day at Ty Croes Anglesey, this was an overall great weekend and after much discussion we decided to go ahead and buy a Westfield.
In August 2004 we found a nice example and went ahead and bought it. It was a 1989 Westfield SE, fitted with a Ford 1600 GT Crossflow engine, twin Weber 40 DCOE carburettors, a Ford Type 9 5 speed gearbox and a Ford Escort 'Live' rear axle.
We used it in this spec until early 2005 when 'upgradeitis' set in. We removed the engine, which was completely rebuilt by Noel Flinders at NF Racing Developments, Rotherham.
This was a superb power unit, producing 110BHP with a 0 to 60mph time of 5.2 seconds, very respectable for a Crossflow engine. We used the car for a number of 'Trackdays' and as the car is road legal covered many pleasurable miles around the Yorkshire/Derbyshire Countryside.
What is it like on the Road & Track and to work on?
It's for road use and is perfectly road legal, very nice head turner, but with a change of wheels/tyres and suspension set up it is a fantastic 'Track Day' car. It's really easy to work on and parts are readily available, either new direct from Westfield Sportcars, or plentiful supply of good used parts. (Ford and Vauxhall Running Gear).
The car was on a trackday at Elvington, York only 6 days after purchase and has since been on numerous circuits which include Elvington Airfield York, Donington Park, Ty Croes Anglesey and Cadwell Park.
PerformanceAs the car only weighs 550kgs, it gives an impressive 342.3 BHP per tonne with a top speed of 135mph (Circuit only!).
The 0 to 60 mph is now 4.8 seconds.
