HPD ARX-02a LMP1 Sportscar

The ARX-02a LMP1 Sportscar, developed by Wirth Research for HPD, featured a radical new LMP1 design. The new chassis competed against Audi and Peugeot in LMP1, and was the first LMP1 car to feature the largest sized tyres permitted on all four wheels. The ARX-02a went onto achieve eight wins in its debut ALMS season, as well as winning the Championship title. This large tyre innovation has now been universally adopted in LMP1.

HPD ARX-01e LMP1 Sportscar

Wirth Research was requested to produce a new LMP1 prototype for HPD in less than four months, and enter its first race without any pre-event testing. The resulting ARX-01e epitomises the digital, fast response engineering that Wirth Research can deliver. The car ran faultlessly at the Sebring 12-hour race, finishing in second place to a factory supported LMP1 opposition.
