History Built as a Westfield SEight in 2005 by John Fisher (Fish) for competing in the Westfield Speed Series. At that time, the V8 engine had throttle bodies, so more powerful and very thirsty. Fish removed the throttle bodies, built a custom inlet manifold and added twin SU carbs (and a windscreen) to make it more road-friendly before I bought it in 2012.

Sold to its next owner Oct 2016.
