Dry sumping is ideal for motorcycle-engined cars, and sidecars. West Performance dry sump systems have been used extensively in both applications, for road and track use.
An example of a motorcycle-engined car application is the Jedi single-seat race car. Used for hillclimbing, sprinting and circuit racing, the light, agile car with slick tyres and downforce is capable of high cornering speeds and is particularly susceptible to oil surge problems, even with a baffled sump. A full dry sump conversion removes this issue, allowing the engine to run more efficiently and more reliably throughout the season.
"The cars in the Jedi Championship fitted with PFM kits have fewer failures and provide noticeably more consistent power with no drop-off towards the end of the race." - John Corbyn, Jedi Racing Cars
