Spyder Formula Vee

Tue 30 Nov 2021

Name: Richard Walsh



Location: Chorley, Lancashire

Price: £5250

For sale is my Class B Spyder Mk2 Formula Vee Single Seat racecar.

The Spyder was created by Mike Steley when he converted American Citation Vee chassis' for the UK market and took the championship by storm.

The car has completed the last two seasons in the 750MC UK Formula Vee Championship achieving 4th in Class in the 2020 championship. The current season was blighted by a misfire that eventually was traced to the lightweight lithium battery (fault confirmed by Powerlite) I installed at the start of 2021. This has now been replaced with a Varley red-top lead acid battery and the engine runs great.

The car had new lightweight bodywork made at the start of 2021 and I would be willing to sell the moulds and spare body panels. (price to be negotiated)

Belts are in date and ready to race for 2022.

The 1300cc Engine was built by AHS Motorsports in 2020 and is fully compliant with UK Formula Vee Regulations.

The gearbox was rebuilt ahead of the 2021 season by Bears Motorsports and the clutch was replaced at the same time.

Bears Motorsports also replaced the front beam and created a cracking setup on the Spyder.

New brakes were fitted all round and all suspension components were serviced by AVO ahead of the 2021 season.

Car has had all new electrics, coil, ignition module, distributor, rotor arm, plug leads, plugs, fuel pump, FIA Isolator switch and ignition switch this season.

The car dash has:-
Racetech Air/Fuel Ratio Meter,
Racetech Tachometer with programmable shift lights
Racetech Combined Oil Temperature & Pressure Gauge
Dual Oil Pressure Warning Lights
Wilwood remote brake bias adjuster
Quick release steering wheel

The Spyder is a brilliant chassis and is a proven race winner in the right hands (A Spyder won the recent Formula Vee race at Brands Hatch).

There are spare parts available that could be included in the sale - spare chassis (from roll hoop forward) plus engine mounts.

The car currently has an AMB Tranx 260DP transponder which I would be willing to sell with the car for £300

Formula Vee has been around for over 50 years and has been the starting point for many top drivers - Emerson Fittipaldi, Jochen Rindt, Niki Lauda, Keke Rosberg, Nelson Piquet, recently in the UK, Vee was the starting point for current BTCC champion Ash Sutton. Vee is the most affordable route into motor racing and you get amazing fun, challenges and on-track dices for your money. The Vee paddock is incredibly friendly and helpful.
