Competition Car Composites: A Practical Handbook (Revised 2nd Edition)

Composites have been around since ancient civilisations began making bricks from clay and straw. Glass fibre, carbon fibre and aramid fibres - to name but three - are recent innovations, yet today there are few competition cars that dont have at least some components made out of one or more of these materials. However, while it is well known that glass fibre technology can be used in the home workshop, what may not be so widely realised is that more advanced fibres also lend themselves to DIY methods.

This revised edition of Competition Car Composites starts by examining the materials and methods that can be used, explaining basic wet and dry laminating techniques, pattern making and mould construction, and the design and manufacture of components. It then goes on to cover material and technology upgrades, and how more advanced materials can be exploited to achieve improved properties and reduced weight. The use of thermoplastic materials, resin infusion methods, and, especially, pre-pregs in the home workshop, are also discussed, as are the composite techniques used by top racecar constructors.
