Established in 2005, West Motorsport Australia Pty Ltd is Australia’s only designer, developer and manufacturer of high performance race cars for a global market. West is a race car engineering company and producer of the West LMP4, DSR / CSR / C6SR world leading Sports Racers. West is also sole APAC Asia Pacific distributor of the Firman RFR F1000. West and Firman are the premium manufacturers of the highest quality, and highest performing, super-bike engine powered race cars in the world.
West director Greg Steer was one of the original consortium who purchased West Race Cars LLC in Portland Oregon, USA in 2005. Greg was involved in the specification and production of the first Au spec CAMS approved WR1000 which was brought into Australia in 2006 and the creation of the Sports Racer category. Competing now in the dedicated Australian Sports Racer Series, part of the Shannon’s National Series, West holds lap records at virtually every track we have raced at, including Queensland 2013, Phillip Island 2013, Mallala 2014, and Sandown 2016.
West are the exclusive distributor for the RFR F1000 open wheeler from Ralph Firman Racing, UK. Director of RFR, Ralph Firman, was the founder and driving force behind Van Diemen Racing’s success as the global leader of volume race car manufacturing for three decades until its sale in 1999. Ralph set up RFR early in 2008 to cater for the club racing enthusiast and the same volume car market which he dominated throughout the 1970s, 80s and 90s.
West maintains an Adelaide engineering, assembly & workshop facility and a purpose-built, state-of-the-art racing car manufacturing facility in Samutprakarn, Bangkok, Thailand. West offers full race car maintenance, preparation and logistics in its well equipped, modern workshop. We also provide car preparation services, track support and logistics for West and Firman owners and our lease drive customers. West has a large inventory of parts consumables for West and Firman race cars, ensuring our customers are back on the track in no time.
In 2015, West embarked on a revolutionary new racing car design called the “LMP4”. In September 2016, the manufacturing assembly line in our Thailand factory was completed, and the first production racing cars came off the line in November 2016, and in 2017 with national and international sales already.
West also supports sports racing and is managing a team of existing and new race cars and drivers, including 2 new LMP4’s driven by international drivers for the 5 round Australian 2017 Sports Racer series.
