Kit car build pages


Adrian's Race Genesis

Adrian is a local cam7er. He is also racing in the RGB series, albeit it in class A. This website is all about his Genesi kit cars.

Alex Milton's Rush

Another V8 LWB Rush build. He's even rebuilding he engine like I did.

Ashley Trowe's site

Another Oxford blue Rush. At the time of writing Ash has actually sold this car and is building another one.

Bob Flaherty's site

An Aussie Westfield builder. Isn't the web wonderful?

Bob's Ultima site

An Ultima build site! Drool....

Bob's FuryBusa site

Having built a MegaBusa and then an Ultima he's now doing another BEC, except this time he's going to race it!

Charlie's Tiger build

Another local chap, this time building a Tiger Avon with lots and lots of nice photos.

Chris' site

Chris has a fearsome Cosworth-engined Westfield.

Craig's Phoenix

Craig built a Phoenix, which is a design fairly closely related to the Fury. However, he's now sold it to Steve who appears to be storing it until he can show it on Antiques Roadshow in 2052.

Dan's stuff

Dan is another cam7er who is now building a rather pimpy Fury complete with carbon fibre, kevlar, etc., etc. He's recently started work on another Fury which he's intending to race in RGB. I'm trying to stop him fiddling about with other cars and just get on with the racer...

Derek's Blog

Not strictly a build page, but Derek's also an RGBer.

DH2's page

Dave is another cam7er. He's built a Westfield MegaBird and set up a webcam. Check out the time-lapse videos on his site.

Duncan's Dax

This was the first Dax Rush I saw. Duncan used to live just round the corner but then moved to Sheffied and sold his Rush.

Ed's Westfield builds

Details of Ed Cane's Westfield builds. Ed has become a stalwart of the BEC (bike-engined car) builders and pioneered some of the now standard approaches to things like propshafts and reverse gears.

Erwin Dekker's page

An amazing page detailing a real do-it-yourself seven-alike.

Jim's Westfield build

Yet another build from a cam7er.

John's Pembleton

John's building a Pembleton Brooklands, a new one on me until he mailed me. It looks like he's trying to produce a nice warts and all page here.

Kev's site

A detailed description of buiding a Rush, with loads and loads of photos.

Marc's site

Yet another pseudo-local, this time with s Striker that's been converted to bike (Yamaha R1) power.

Matt's Phoenix build

An example of the relatively rare Phoenix build site. What's more, he reckons this site is "inspirational" so he's clearly one of the good guys.


Build page for a Zetec-engined Mojo-2. (Which I quite like, unlike many others.)

R1 Fury

Detailed build site for and R1 engined Fisher Fury.

Richard's Rush build

Vying with this site for torpidity is Richard's Zetec Rush build. He's actually finished the car now and it's on the road, not that you'd know from the site.

Rich's Striker

A gorgeous R1 engined Striker. Rich has actually sold this car to Kerry. However, his site has now been hosted elsewhere which is good as it's a great read!

Rick's site

Rick is a chap in the Netherlands building a Rush. Luckily, his English is very good!

Rob Collingridge's Fury

A nice site about the ongoing build of an R1 engined Fury. Lots of nice detail and frequently updated.

Stephan's Dax

A bi-lingual Dax build site.

Steve Richards' site

Yet another yellow Westfield, except this one's a SpeedSport

Thomas' site

Another Dutch Rush builder

Trevor's Rush build

I sold Trevor some unwanted brake bits, so see what happens to them here!

William's Dax build

William used to have a Tiger and, like me, went on to building a Dax.

ZX9R Fury

Another bike engined Fury build page, this time with a Ninja engine.

You can find everything here from detailed Q&A about cars, pub style discussion and even arrange to go on various tours to far flung parts of the world. Just follow the links to the list pages and join the ones that seem appropriate. You could even join cam7 and join in the fun!

Mallory Park

Mallory Park circuit. Perhaps not the best circuit but one of the better circuit web sites.

Silverstone circuit, home of the British GP, until they do something (even) more stupid with it. Unfortunately, it's also an utterly stupid website where they assume that you've got some sort of terminal tunnel vision. Why are there so many poor web designers around?


My local circuit, I guess. Actually a great circuit. It's a bit flat and windy out there but the circuit's got everything.


Spa-Francorchamps; fastastic Belgian circuit.


Trackday organisers



My personal favourite trackday organisers, run by a friendly collection of people who nonetheless control things pretty well.

Motorsport Events

These people do pretty well organised days at a local airfield circuit. A few too many stones but it's local. Problem is, there noise limit is getting a bit difficult.


Another decent organiser


Has to be one of the most horrible websites (why do some web designers presume to change the size of my windows on my screen?), but they are there, I guess.
