DJ Racecars - Firestorm Price: POA
Last Updated On: 28/10/2012
The Firestorm is DJ Racecars' first foray into the unlimited class of British Hillclimb, and made its debut in 2009. The first car was powered by a DJ developed Cosworth XD V8, mated to a Lola Cars sequential gearbox, and was commissioned by hillclimb competitor Wallace Menzies.
The car is an all new, 'clean sheet ' concept, developed and manufactured in-house. DG Racecars worked with advice on chassis design from renowned racecar designer Martin Ogilvie and closely with Cosworth and Lola Cars on the drivetrain specification.
The Firestorm can also be configured for use with other V8 or V10 race engines and gearboxes that are used in UK hillclimb, Eoroboss/Boss GP etc. The design has proved to be extremely reliable, with front running pace from its first test.
