||Carbon Fibre Products
|A new range of Carbon Fibre components are soon to be available from Courtenay Sport. We have recently carried out trial fitting and evaluation the parts and are very pleased with the overall look, fit and finish.
At launch we will have available for Astra VXR the 'V' for the front grille, the Front Lower Splitter, Foglight Surrounds, the Rear Diffuser and covers for the inserts on the OE rear bumper.
All these parts are made from Real Carbon Fibre, they are not carbon wrapped/covered parts - these are the real thing. They are all very high quality items, with an excellent fit and lacquer finished.
The front foglight surrounds and covers for the rear diffuser inserts simply bond into place, with a suitable bonding agent. The V Grille has OE style clips and simply clips into place, as do the front splitter and rear diffuser. It may be worth considering using some bonding agent on these parts for additional security.
Other parts will be patterned up for soon, including the Tailgate Strip for Astra VXR.
Carbon Fibre Foglight Surrounds £72.00
Carbon Fibre V-Grille £215.00
Carbon Fibre Front Splitter £498.00
Carbon Fibre Covers for OE Inserts in OE Rear Diffuser £72.00
Carbon Fibre Rear Diffuser Panel £375.00

Focus RS Takes Maiden Win
5 Sep 2012, 17:20
Courtenay Sport Focus RS
The Production Touring Car Trophy championship held at Rockingham Motor Speedway over the weekend of September 1st and 2nd saw the race debut of the Courtenay Sport backed Focus RS, driven by 2010 and 2011 champion Adrian Churchill.
Built to a high standard by Mardi Gras Motorsport, the car features fully adjustable KW suspension, Alcon brakes and a bespoke race exhaust system from Milltek Sport, with final prep work and pre-season mapping carried out by Courtenay Sport.
After getting the car competitive during summer testing, but with no race data to draw upon, the Courtenay Sport backed car qualified in fourth place for its first race, in a highly competitive field. The race results for the weekend were a respectable fourth place in the first race, a non finish after contact from a competitor caused suspension damage and the car had to retire in the second race, and in the third and final race starting from the back of the grid (due to the non finish in race two) Adrian battled hard and came through the field to take the car to its maiden win.
Additional testing and development will be carried out over the coming months, with focus particularly on the chassis and set up.
A fantastic weekend all round and massive congratulations to the whole team, Adrian and to the team backers and sponsors.
Corsa VXR Nürburgring Exhausts
13 Apr 2012, 16:08
Courtenay Sport are pleased to announce the development of exhaust systems for Corsa VXR Nürburgring by Milltek and Piper.
|Working closely with Piper Exhausts, a 76mm stainless steel tailbox has been developed for the Corsa VXR Nürburgring. Added to the existing 76mm system for Corsa VXR, a full 76mm system is now available for this car, to help release maximum performance.
As with the current system, the first main cat is removed and options include twin or single silencer systems with or without a motorsport cat.
Cars fitted with a full system will require an ecu remap to ensure optimum safe running and to overcome any issues with the emissions, as the VXR Nürburgring is a Euro 5 compliant model from the factory and removing the large factory fitted pre cat and just using a high flow motorsport cat will require an ecu recalibration to give correct fuelling and emissions.
Piper offer a range of tail trims, however the options shown here, 4" (100mm) Slash Cut, is probably one of the best.
Pricing is as follows:
Full 76mm System with Motorsport Cat* Twin Silencers £1385.00
Full 76mm System with Motorsport Cat* Single Silencer £1240.00
Deduct £255.00 for a completely decatted* system
Cat Back System Twin Silencers £750.00
Cat Back System Single Silencer £610.00
*Note: A motorsport cat will pass current UK MOT emissions. In some countries motorsport cats may not be road legal. Please comply with the relevant laws of your country. Removing both cats may not be road legal and will lead to an MOT emissions failure.
|After the announcement by Milltek Sport of a 70mm twin outlet cat back exhaust system for the Corsa VXR Nürburgring, Courtenay Sport are pleased to confirm that a full 70mm (2.75 inch) stainless steel system is now available.
The system removes the existing Euro V compliant first catalyst (pre-cat) replacing it with straight through pipework, the second cat in the factory system is replaced with a high flow motorsport cat*, and the cat back system comprises of a stainless steel performance exhaust system with a twin-box rear silencer design with twin outlets.
The system has been developed with three different Tailpipe tip options:
90mm Polished, 100mm Polished and 100mm Titanium
Regardless of which tailpipe option you choose, the system offers perfectly balanced sound quality.
The Corsa VXR Nürburgring exhaust is manufactured from the finest quality 14-16 gauge 2.75-inch T304 stainless steel and features TIG-welded joints, C.N.C. mandrel bending and offers a significant weight saving over the OEM exhaust.
This system will release additional power and torque over a standard system but will require an ecu remap to ensure optimum performance and no issues with management light illumination due to the motorsport catalyst, and removal of the first catalyst. Additionally the second lambda sensor wiring will need extending to fit. The system will also be ideally suited for customers wishing to further tune their vehicles to over 300bhp.
This full system is available at £1950.00 inc VAT and UK Mainland Shipping.
The cat back system is £925.00 inc VAT and UK Mainland Shipping.
Pricing is for either the 90mm or 100mm polished tail trim option.
For Dual Titanium 100mm tail trim please add £125.00
Please contact us for more details or to order.
*Note: A motorsport cat will pass current UK MOT emissions. In some countries motorsport cats may not be road legal. Please comply with the relevant laws of your country.
