Established in 2005, West Race Cars 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 LMX world leading Sports Racers.
West’s CEO 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 Australian spec CAMS approved WR1000 which was brought into Australia in 2006 and the creation of the C6SR Sports Racer category. Competing now in the dedicated Australian Prototype Series, part of the Shannon’s National Series, West holds lap records at virtually every track we have raced at, including Queensland, Phillip Island, Mallala, Sydney and Sandown.
West sales and marketing group are based in Adelaide and our vehicle production group are based in our purpose-built, state-of-the-art racing car manufacturing facility in Samutprakarn, Bangkok, Thailand. With the exception of the motor, drivetrain and electronics, West with our OEM partners manufactures the end-to-end vehicle, including chassis, composites, suspension, brakes and CNC components. West’s R&D Group, Ethan-West Ltd provide contract engineering and prototyping services to the global motorsport market. West have been involved with a number of LMP2 & LMP3 teams since mid 2016 and will be announcing collaboration projects later this year.
In 2015, West embarked on a revolutionary new racing car design called the “LMX”. Two prototype cars, the LMX-10 & LMX14 have been tested and raced over the past 12 months and West has now entered full production of both models.
The manufacturing assembly line in our Thailand factory was completed in June 2017, with the first production race cars shipping late July.
The West team is committed to continuing our heritage of delivering world class race cars to the motorsport teams globally.
