Established 1986

Here at Lynx AE we are continually in the process of exploring new avenues and developing new products.
The following is a taste of the products we have developed.

LR750 Gnome Currently in development



We are currently working on a 750 Motor Club Formula 750 car to be called the LR750 Gnome in memory of Alan Hunt. The LR750 Gnome will run a FIAT FIRE engine and comply with the 750 Motor Club Formula 750 championship regulations. The car in progressing well and we now have the engine installed and running and the body panels fitted.

Mini R1 - Classic Mini bike engine conversion kit
Here at LynxAE we have been racing Mini's and putting motorbike engines in cars for many years now, in fact we started racing motorbikes in 1987 then moved to Minis in 1991 and in 1996 we fitted the first motorbike engine into the works Global Light race car. A previous conversion in an MG Miget showed the versatility and performance of the Yamaha R1 engine so, when we were approached by a customer to install a Yamaha R1 engine into the front of a Mini driving the front wheels, under strict instructions that there were to be no body modifications. It was a natural progression to put our extensive knowledge to use and design what we feel is the best Mini Yamaha R1 conversion kit money can buy.



The video above is of our works Mini R1 race car in action at Silverstone in the Bentley Drivers Club all comers race. We narrowly missed the outright win but we were piped at the post by a 400+ bhp Lotus Europa. Our race car runs the exact same kit and standard Yamaha R1 engine that you can fit to your road, track day or race car.

Victory at Silverstone 7th August 2010
Bentley Drivers Cub race meeting



In the first race with the 1340 engine Jon in the LR1300 took an amazing victory.

Jon qualified 2nd on the grid behind Chris Randall in his Lotus Europa with a Morgan V8 nipping at Jon's heels, and we were looking forward to a great race.

The lights changed and Jon got a brilliant start, he managed to get around the outside of Chris in the first corner. Jon new it was going to be close so got straight on it and put in some impressive early lap times to build a gap on Chris in his Lotus. Unfortunately Chris had to retire from the race in the early stages. Jon having built a gap amazed the crowd as he dominantly carved his way up the inside around the outside and through the middle of the traffic to lap the entire field up to 3rd place and took the a prestigious race win.





Based on the brilliant race proven technology of the LR1, the new LR1300 (Lynx Racing 1300) & LR1340 is a true 2 seat bike engine powered closed top GT car. With many attributes inspired by the legendary Porsche 956/962, the LE MANS winning Audi R10 and the Peugeot 908 the LR1300 has looks and performance to match.

The space frame chassis and GRP body makes this a light weight yet strong affordable Track day or Race package. The car incorporates many speed and handling enhancing features thought up by it's designer / creator Jon Lee from his many years of involvement in motorsport. With many components manufactured by former F1 technicians the quality is as you would expect.

The package can be tuned to match any driver or conditions with it's fully adjustable rose jointed suspension, Adjustable rear wing and Position adjustable peddle box. At a very light all up wet weight of less than 460kg, the Suzuki Hayabusa gives a power to weight ratio many try to copy. with its unique engine cradle design the LR1300 will accept almost any motorbike engine.
