Britain West becomes official supplier of the Mygale Chassis for Canada


Britain West Motorsports, one of Canada’s leading Formula Ford competition group, is pleased to announce the addition of the Mygale chassis to their expanded racing program.

Working with Bryan Herta Autosports of Indianapolis, Ind., owners of Mygale North America program, Britain West will be the official supplier of the Mygale program to teams and drivers across the country. With a winning record and leading designs, look for Mygale cars to top the podium through 2014.

“The addition of the Mygale chassis gives us another option for our customers and for racers across Canada,” stated David Clubine, owner of Britain West Motorsports. “We will still be supporting the Van Diemen chassis, but different racers are looking for different options, and the Mygale platform offers that. Our stable of key suppliers and manufacturers continues to grow as we support team drivers and privateers in a variety of racing series.”

Made in France and imported to North America, the Mygale chassis meets all specifications and requirements for racing in the Ontario-based Toyo Tires F1600 Championship, Quebec-based Formula Tour 1600, and newly formed Formula 1600 Super Series. Founded in 1989, Mygale quickly found success at the top of the podium in 1995. Located in a state-of-the-art facility located at Circuit Nevers Magny Cours in France, the Mygale Formula F program completed an incredible 1-2-3 finish in the 2005 Formula Ford Festival.

“Mygale North America is thrilled to have Britain West as our Canadian agent,” added Steve Newey of Bryan Herta Autosports. “We realize that the competition is very tough in all the Canadian series, and we look forward to supporting all the Mygale drivers as they race for the championship.”

In their first season of racing in North America, the Mygale chassis was able to take wins and podiums in the US-based F1600 Formula F Championship Series. This new growth in to Canada will see those winning performances continue deep into the Canadian junior open-wheel scene.

“I am absolutely delighted that the Mygale chassis has a permanent home here in Canada and that Britain West is coming back to the Toyo Tires F1600 Championship on a full-time basis,” commented Jason Sharp, promoter for the Ontario series and co-promoter of the Canadian Super Series. “David Clubine and his group are a race-winning organization, and I know the collaboration between them, the Mygale factory, and Bryan Herta Autosport are going to be championship contenders right from the start of the season.”

Echoing those same great sentiments is Marcel Lafontaine, promoter of the Quebec Formula Tour and co-promoter of the Canadian Super Series.

“Adding the Mygale program is not only fantastic for Britain West, but it is also fantastic for Canadian formula car racers. There are a number of strong chassis already successful in our series and this gives racers another great option. The diversity of chassis, teams and drivers is what makes this format racing so exciting and so popular.”
