Locost offers some of the closest racing in UK motorsport, and largest grids. The extremely affordable cars are built to the design set out in Ron Champion’s book 'Build Your Own Sports Car' (ISBN 1-85960-636-9).



Ford Xflow 1300; modifications are limited to a + 0.090” rebore and basic ‘blue-printing’. Induction is the 1300GT carburettor or similar, but exhaust is free.


Modifications are limited to choice of spring-rates, single-adjustable dampers and free choice of anti-roll bars.

4-speed Escort or 4/5-speed Sierra Type 9 gearbox; standard ratios. Final drive ratio is free; no LSD or similar.


The only permitted tyre is the Yokohama A539 in 185/60/13.
