That's very sad.

I was amazed the day I found out those odd pod things (assumes LHR T5 connection?) were built by them.
I wonder what caused it in the end. There are a LOT of people with deep pockets messing with autonomous stuff.


Just time to rent a thimble more petrol before dinner.

That also means the demise of the lovely Chesil Speedster which has always been a nice liitle car. Perhaps the original owners,builders will buy it back, I know Total Headturners in Essex buy up every one they can as they are very popular.


Here for a good time not a long time!!

Sad news and worrying. Westfield were considered the next down from Caterham so well up in the ranking.
Over the last few years the kit scene has been shrinking. The good Lotus7 style cars are real drivers delights. I came clise to building a Raw Stryker before getting a Morgan. One hell of a car!

I note that it is two Trading companies that have failed and that the Holding company is still fine.

Guess assets (designs, jigs tooling, premises') belong to Holding company and that Westfield will re-emerge once they have written debts/liabilities off.

I hope that customers with part delivered kits had the foresight to secure a Parent Company Guarantee!
