Astra Summerhawk F-1000

2013 Astra Summer Hawk is here!

Now available, and turning incredible lap times everywhere it goes, is the new Astra Summerhawk.

Engineered using the latest computer-aided techniques such as FEA and CFD, the Summerhawk was designed from the ground up by Alain Clarinval to compete in SCCA's exploding Formula 1000 class. As a clean sheet design, it can maximize the class potential, and supports several unique features, including the aggressive rear diffuser, a triple-element front wing, and a cooling package designed to meet the needs of the modern 200+ horsepower superbike engines that power the car.

The Summerhawk is designed to accept drivers of all sizes, and at 800# ready to race, most drivers will have no trouble making minimum weight.

The Summerhawk uses high quality components throughout, from well-known and respected suppliers including:
  • Fuel Safe Fuel Cell
  • Titan Steering Rack
  • Wilwood brake calipers
  • Tilton Pedals and Master Cylinders
  • Quaife Torsen differential
  • Racequip fuel fillers, lines, and brake lines
  • SPA Fire system
  • SPA Quick-Release steering wheel
  • Super-light Cast-alloy 8"/10" Wheels

Excellent Design from Extensive Experience

Alain Clarinval has over 50 years' experience as a motorsport engineer, with the Summerhawk being just the latest in a long history of motorsports success.

Before the Summerhawk, Alain has been involved in all levels of motorsport, including engineering for Oriol Servia in Indy Cars, as well as teams in Indy Lights, Formula Atlantics, and all the way down to Formula Vee. He's also worked at all levels of touring cars, IMSA GTP, World Sports Cars, ALMS, and everything in between.

As an aerodynamicist, Alain designed the wings used on Indy Cars from 1997-onward, as well as the aerodynamic package for the Speads RS11 sports racer.

Alian brought all of this experience, coupled with the latest generation of computer design tools to bear on designing the newest cars, and the Astra Summerhawk, and Blackhawk are the results.
