I was really pleased to get a chance to visit the ‘new’ Westfield Chesil operation in Bicester, Oxfordshire. General manager, Simeon Cattle was my guide for the day.

We have a full feature upcoming very soon in TKC MAG but suffice it to say the new 8000sq/ft workshop will house all things Westfield and Chesil with turnkeys being built at Simeon’s Project Shop operation around the corner.

A classic car enthusiast, Simeon founded Project Shop in 2010 and specialises in restoration, historic car race prep and much more. Any classic car built between 1950-1990 is fair game and they work on all marques although historic Mercedes-Benz, Ferrari, Jaguar and Aston Martin play a large part in the business.

2023 will see a batch of Westfields either Sport 250, Sport 2000 or SDV guises along with ICE-powered Chesil Speedsters. Kits will play a part in the company’s future with the exception of their EV models which will be turnkey only.

Meanwhile, 2024 will see some very exciting developments – new 2-litre engines (Simeon is tight-lipped on that) for the Westfield range, Chesil EVs and Beetle-based (and more!) Chesils are on the horizon and development is underway now.

They’ll also re revising and re-launching the much-loved Westfield Eleven model in both kit and fully built forms.

Their new parts department is open from March 1, while they have been busy putting their supply chain in place for Westfield and Chesil models.

Exciting times are ahead. Stay tuned here for more details. In the meantime, visit www.westfield-sportscars.co.uk ENDS.
