MAGNUM single seater project


Magnum Single Seater Project - £2750

Magnum Race Cars in Northampton, founded by John Robinson, built race cars in the 1980s. They produced a few Sports 2000s & some F3s (remembered best for once out qualifying Senna & Brundle with David Leslie). The company evolved into a specialised supplier to Formula 1 teams. At some point c.1990 they appear to have been commissioned to build a batch of single seaters for a single chassis race series in the Caribbean. You can see them racing in Jamaica in 1995 on YouTube.
The cars were spaceframed, pushrod suspended, powered by dry sumped Golf GTi 8v engines & using Hewland LD gearboxes. Constructed to a high standard, using a simple robust design,
they shared various components like uprights etc with the earlier F3s

I have acquired a big heap of unused components from these cars including sufficient to make it possible for an adventurous individual to build up a car - either similar to the original specification or using it as a basis for something of their own conception

One possible package would comprise:


Powdercoated spaceframe chassis with integral steel floor
pair engine A frames
oil tank
fuel tank
coolant header tank
alloy water pipes
cockpit bulkhead alloy panels
