The visit to the rolling road at Track'n'Road in March before showed the engine producing 292bhp/197lbft with a very smooth increase in both horsepower & torque.
Despite an overcast start, Peter tested his Westfield with it's new 2.0L Vauxhall XE engine at Curborough in March 2007. While there, he arranged for Toby & Tom from Aurok to come to discuss the suspension set up of his car.

All Circuit Runner up: Peter Hayter Westfield SE1
Peter Hayter Wins so far in my first season of sprinting are for the ACSMC are 7 out of 7 in my class
This is what the car first looked like , it then evolved into the car shown in the picture below which was taken on a very cold day testing at Curborough.
The car was purchased to give me something to play with while my Sunbeam Tiger was being restored,by the time the Tiger was finished the Westi was trackdaying quite a lot.
After a full restoration of the Tiger (imported from the states as a left hand drive and in a right mess) including a brand new 5ltr Edelbrook tuned 350 hp engine and conversion to right hand drive l decided l didn't want it as the Westi was so much fun and that was were my time was going to be.
After Steve took all my money l had no choice but to sell the Tiger and continue with the development of the Westi which is due to have a light weight chassis and a new body ,this will leave nothing from the original car apart from the gear lever!
