The WX10 started on paper in 2006, with the first production car available in early 2009. Improvements were made over the previous model WR1000 in all major areas: drivetrain, aerodynamics, weight, safety, reliability and ease of maintenance. The bodywork is completely redesigned to be more aerodynamic and with less drag than the previous model. West now offers more powerplant choices than anyone – you can have your car built with a Honda CBR1000, Suzuki GSXR or Kawasaki ZX10R. Downforce is greatly increased through a completely redesigned rear wing, tunnel extractor and front diffuser – all matched to the extremely successful tunnel floor system from the WR1000. All components were designed in CAD (computer aided design) and the aerodynamic performance of the tunnel, wing, diffuser and bodywork was verified with advanced CFD testing.
Over 50 additional improvements have been made to the WX10, yet at the same time, West has kept the proven elements from the previous model, ultimately giving you a proven design package with the latest advances in aerodynamics, performance and power! And the results are starting to speak for themselves! The WX10 has won many National SCCA events competing against the best manufacturers in its class – Stohr, Speads, Radical, Elan, and many others (all more expensive cars)!
The WX10 can be built specifically for the class of racing you desire. A more advanced version is available for SCCA racing, using the latest technologies and composites (lightweight materials, carbon fiber brakes are just a few examples). And a “spec” version is available for the IMSA Prototype Lites series at a much lower price point. The WX10 currently runs in Prototype ites L2 (exclusively), SCCA National and Regional DSR, SCCA National and Regional CSR, NASA, PBOC, track day events and more! The WX10 was specifically designed to be easy to drive for the novice, yet challenging for the advanced or semi-pro driver. Handling is neutral, braking is incredible and the power of the engine is a rush! Download the WX10 brochure here for additional specs.
And combined with the service and support provided by the West factory, you will always be covered when you need parts or service for your car. For more information on the WX10 sportsracer or the West factory race team feel free to contact West at (800) 288-WEST or firstname.lastname@example.org
